I was kinda dreading being out from the office because we had just moved back into our office, which was undergoing renovations since the beginning of January, and I wanted to be there to get organized.
Silly, silly me. I should not have to be reminded on the important time that can be spent with my boys besides the weekends. We. Had. The. Best. Day. Ever. In fact, I think this day was the best day I've ever had with the boys together. The only thing that was missing was daddy.
My mom had a medical procedure on Thursday but actually ended up feeling better and joined the boys and I at THE ZOO! Dave was so excited... he kept telling me we were going to "the zoo, the park and for a Pic-Nic!"
Please bear with me for the photo bomb that is below... :)
|Starting out... poor Dill didn't feel his best if you can't tell. He's actually since had his two top teeth poke through, no wonder he felt crappy!|
|First animal exhibit. The giraffes were awesome. Did anyone know that a giraffe only needs to sleep between 20 minutes and four hours in a 24 hour period. Can you imagine all that you could get done!|
|The orangutan kept playing with this blanket and covering himself up. We all watched him for quite a while... he was a funny guy! Dave kept saying, "I've never seen this before." He was cracking me up!|
|For some reason my mom thought it would be funny if Dave climbed up in the lion display. Obviously, these are stuffed. :)|
|On the lion.|
|At the elephant exhibit. This was my absolute favorite. I love the elephants.|
|At the park. It was a constant battle to keep Dill from eating the wood chips!|
|Dave loved the slide.|
|Dill and Grandma Betty|
|This is about as "Super Mom" as I get... pushing two boys at once! :) They were loving the swings and I was glad to find something that Dillon could do too!|
|Dave on the zip line. The day was hot. This was about the time I wished I'd opted to wear a pair of short and a t-shirt!|
|This place had some sweet slides.|
|Probably one of the only decent pictures I have of me and the boys. I love it.|
|My happy Dilly Dawg!|
|Leilani and I (and Dill)|
|Posing with the lions again.|
|Time to go home!|
My weekend actually didn't end there. Jeremy was gone fishing at Table Rock Lake and I had plans to see my best friend, Rachel. Grandma Lori and Grandpa Richard watched the boys while I went to see Rach on Saturday. We had a blast shopping and just getting to see each other. It definitely does not happen often enough!
Jeremy and John had boat troubles and headed home early on Sunday. So I even got most of the day with my husband as well. A perfect weekend!
