Thanks for stopping by! We were a family of three, until we added one more (cat, that is), making us a family of four. In 2012, we added four more...one husband, two girls, and a dog. We have a full plate as a party of eight!

Adoption, blended families, pets, school, running...it's all here. Pull up a chair and read a while. After you do, please leave a little comment love! It makes me happy...and y'all know...if Momma is happy, then everyone is happy...at least at our house!

A Day at the Zoo

We decided to go to the zoo today. It was a beautiful day, so off we went. Gloria loved the puffins, sea lions, and seals. Sadly, my favorite animal, the giraffe, was off exhibit today while they build a feeding deck at the exhibit area. We walked and talked and enjoyed the animals. The line at the ticket booth was very long so we bypassed that for the membership desk. We are now zoo members and can go any time. That excited Gloria! :) Saved us 45 minutes in a long line, too. Bet they had a lot of new members today!


Anyone up for a helicopter ride with a 6 year old pilot?


She was fascinated by this "baby" elephant that was so close to us.



You have NO idea how hard she worked or how many times she attempted to climb this gourd! Climbing is NOT one of her talents, but she was absolutely determined to climb to the top and stand up. She was so proud of herself when she finally did it and then had to repeat the feat another 10 times.

On the beautiful carousel.

A refreshing frozen treat at the end of a long, hot day at the zoo. She looks so happy, doesn't she? I love to see her like this. My sweet little Glo-bug.
