The weekend before last my parents took us out of town to see the kids’ cousins. We all had an amazing time. It was exactly the kind of weekend I used to carefully document in photo-filled blog posts.
For me, the highlight of the trip was probably the zoo. Of course, we also had a great time just lounging around the hotel and visiting Focus on the Family, but the zoo isn’t free…which makes my adult mind say, “This, kids, this is the highlight of our trip!”
Kids, on the other hand, they like hotel fish. And the boxes the presents come in.
The last time we took pictures at the Colorado Springs zoo, Miss C bonded with the monkeys. As you can see, not much has changed.
It was a weekend of sugary breakfast eating, happy hour hanging, game room playing, elevator riding, crowded pool swimming, slide sliding, ice cream eating, birthday partying, zoo hiking, mall walking fun. We might just have to do it all again!
It’s fall. I’ve been waiting for this: for the crunch of leaves and the smell of fresh pears served with caramel and cream. As you can see from this photo proof, the kids love fall as much as I do. Actually, they really do…enough that they don’t mind me dressing them up and making them pose for fall pictures.
**Doesn’t look like the mountains of New Mexico? It’s not. We’ve moved. More on that soon!
