I hate how blurry these next few pictures are. My stupid camera kept focusing on the fan behind her...sorry about that. (Maybe I need to add "clean fan" to my list of things to do this week!) But I couldn't ignore how cute she & Z are in these pics, so here they are:
Z making her laugh, as usual
This is one of her newest expressions--it's so fun to see her finally happy & laughing now that she's feeling better.
Ride 'em, cowboy!
Z is not normally one to nap outside of his bed environment, but this day, he was so exhausted. I had put a video on for him so I could get Kenna down for her nap, and usually he stays awake, but when I came downstairs, this is how I found him!
Z enjoying the new Wee Play exhibit at the Zoo. We are definitely going to make use of this exhibit this summer--this big room is a lot like Sprout (just on a smaller scale), but it's also air-conditioned for those horrible July days. I know it's a shock to all of you that this picture was taken in the kitchen part!
Don't let these zoo pictures fool you--these 3 pictures were about the only calm times we had at the zoo that day. We had a late start getting there. Then, what should have been a 10 minute drive to the zoo turned into 45 minutes, thanks to some police cars who decided to drive right in front of all lanes of cars and drive 3-4 miles per hour for several miles. For no reason, I might add. Of course, our car was the 3rd car behind these police cars, and of course, the police decided they'd had enough just before the exit I needed. :) A lesson in patience! So when we got there, the kids were hungry, Kenna pooped all the way through her outfit, Z was cranky-tired, etc. Shortly after this carousel ride, we headed home. Z was crying & I said, "we can come back to the zoo. We're not having any fun anyway." Then the whole way out of the zoo, he was crying at the top of his lungs, "but mommy, I want to have fun...please can I have fun?" Just wailing. I'm sure everyone thought I was being a horrible mother, denying my son his "fun." :)
