Going to the zoo...

Daddy had to work over the weekend,
so he took today off and we headed over to the
Ft. Worth Zoo.
Since it was a Monday, there was hardly anyone there
and the weather was perfect!!! {checking out the giraffes with Daddy}
{riding on the turtle}

{first carousel ride}

{I think she liked it!}

We had a GREAT day!!!

Gulf Shores

We spent the week of Spring Break in Gulf Shores, AL with Mike's family...and even though the weather was a little cooler than expected and windy we had a good 'ol time and managed to find all kinds of fun things to do!

collecting shells

braving the wind
watching movies

eating lots of treats!
and more beach {with a sunny, non-windy day!}

Thanks Gramma & Papa for a fun vacation!!!

what do you do...

...when your daughter LOVES trains & cars?
And chooses Cars fabric for her travel pillow?
you get it of course...then you do your best to girly up the pillow with ruffles,
polka dots, applique initials & hearts...
then you try to girly her up by taking her for her first pedicure
{notice she is holding a car!}
really Mommy wanted a pedicure...
{only the second one since she was born 2 years ago!}
...and had no babysitter :)
Should I be worried that the color she picked
is called heartbreaker?
