Weekend Fun!

Yesterday we had a wonderful family day. Drew had the day off and we enjoyed every minute of it. We went out to breakfast and then to the Fairgrounds to drop off a couple of photos I entered into competition this year. Then we headed home for a quick nap and then were off to the Carousel at Union Park. Jules wasn't too sure about riding the horses, but seemed content on the Giraffe that didn't move up and down. After the 4th ride, she decided she would try out the Zebra and elephant. She loved it so much that she didn't want to get off! Mary loved it too and is such a good big sis to Jules.

After we got home the girls drew with chalk outside while Drew grilled and I hung out with Courtney. We ate out on the new deck and had a nice relaxing end to the day. I couldn't have asked for a better family day!

Birthday at the Zoo!

Monday was Julianna's 2nd Birthday and we decided to spend the day at the zoo. We started out the morning by letting her open her gifts from Drew, Mary and I. She was so cute tearing into everything!

Then we headed to the Des Moines Zoo with my mom and Tom and Aunt La La. I have to say that our zoo is the perfect size for Julianna. She just loved running around looking at everything. The highlight was watching the elephants Rosie and JP put on a show at the end of our day. Jules was a little scared at first, but once she found out that JP was a baby, she was all about it. We all loved the zoo so much that we bought a season pass. This will also get us into the Omaha Zoo, so we plan to head over there sometime next month!

I think Jules had a great day. Throughout the day we would hear her singing "happy birthday to nana", "happy birthday to nana"...so she knew the day was all about her!

Again, sorry for all of the pics. I just can't help myself!!
