I wanted to share a few photos of our trip to the zoo yesterday. It was a beautiful day that God gave us to enjoy His creations. As some of you may already know, I "hate" the zoo. I am not a big animal person and see no need to walk around and see animals chew their food, throw water from their trunks, and worst of all....the reptile house! With these thoughts in mind, I took my three precious boys to the zoo. Steven and I have been studying God's Plan for different areas of our lives and the world we live in. This week it has been God's Plan for the animals. I was needing to get a few field trips in so I decided I would suck it up and go to the zoo. We had a wonderful time playing at the park before the zoo opened. Hope you enjoy the pictures! The boys had a great time looking at the different animal that were exhibited. When we got to the reptile house, Steven was asking me to go in with them. My answer was NO! I told him if he wanted to go in, I would wait for him at the excit. He decided we could come back later. Whew!!! Got out of it! As we passed the excit, a lady came running out saying, "Where is a zoo keeper? There is a snake loose in their!" Once again the confirmation why I say NO to Reptile Houses! Steven and Carson were able to go in later and survived! It was a great morning and Peyton also enjoyed himself very much. I guess I'll have to try it again some time soon.
Today was a very busy day with Steven's school. We are getting very close to being finished with the school year! Thank the Lord! He has helped us so very much! After a few hours of school, my sitter came to watch the boys while I went to work for a meeting. It was very nice because it was finished early and Larry and I were able to go to Olive Garden for soup and salad! Wonderful! We take advantage of every opportunity we get to have a meal without the boys! It is very important for us as a couple. It was very nice. We were almost finished with our meal, when our sitter called saying that Steven had accidentaly hit Carson across the mouth with a metal baseball bat. She wasn't sure if it needed stitches because it did look like the tooth had come all the way through the lip. Needless to say, it was a quick trip home. After assessing the situation, I called the pediatrician who advised me to put a ice on it and keep it clean and see if it will heal on its own. How does one keep the face of a four year old boy clean? I think he is doing better seeing that he spent most of the afternoon and evening out playing with friends in the yard, street, neighbors yard, down the hill, up the street,....you get the picture! I'm glad I got some cute pictures of him at the zoo yesterday before the accident.
I also went this evening with my wonderful neighbor, Pat, to pick strawberries! Thought of you Kimber! I am planning on making some freezer jam tomorrow. The Lord willing I'll get everything done that is on my schedule for tomorrow. We have 2 birthday parties we also are planning to attend. Busy day ahead....but should prove to be very fun!
Ok, not having much luck with the pictures here, so scroll down for more!
