Spring-like days

Ahh, the warmth of spring after chilly winters…glorious. Even the 55 degree days warrant trips anywhere outdoors. Not that we just struggle through winter or anything! I vowed not to complain about cold after living in Ohio. It is supposed to snow there this week! It’s mid March people! Oh no. I’m fine with our chilly winters that have random days of beauty. I will not complain. But who can blame a girl for jumping up and down when the temps raises a little? We have a few months now to enjoy the outdoors before the days of heat where you may as well just plunk yourself in your child’s little blow-up pool. Sorry kiddo…here’s the hose. 😉
So our first semi-warm-still-need-a-coat day we headed to the zoo with friends. The hubs was off the next day so guess what we did that day!? The zoo. Two words. Zoo. pass. 🙂


As miserable as he looks, he’s actually saying “cheese” and sort of smiling. And okay…that first day was still cold ish but it was lots of fun.
The second day we snagged an extra kid and him and Emerson had a great time…as did Adam and myself.


Adam made their lunches. CUTE.

Aren’t they just the cutest?:)

Thank you semi warm spring ish weather!

E-phants at the zoo

Praise the sweet Lord we had a warm enough day to go outside and do something fun! As soon as I heard 70 degrees I knew we were headed to the zoo!
It raised quite the excitement now that Emerson can identify several zoo animals along with their “noise”…even a couple I had no idea he knew! Nice to know that he goes somewhere else and is being taught there too! Yay!
Okay so the BIG must see for him was the e-phant (I’m hoping you can figure that out). We got there a little before our friends and journeyed right to the elephant and just stared…in awe. After that he said e-phant? off and onfor about the entire trip.
Ooohhhh I’ve been waiting with sweet anticipation for the day he’d actually realize where we were and that we didn’t drive to 20 minutes to go for a walk! He noticed so many of the animals and it was cute cute CUTE to see his excitement. I LOVE being this boys momma! Emerson also walked around the zoo for the first time and did a super job following the bigger kids lead. What a champ!

This happened with zero prompting. He saw the whole and well…what else would go there!?



If you can’t tell (which you can’t from his very serious faces in pics), there was much excitement on this zoo day. 😉
