Family Weekend

Daddy had to work all day on Saturday, but when he got home, Mommy packed a picnic dinner and we went to Shelby Farms.  We had cheese and crackers (my favorite) and chicken salad.  I love spending time with Dada!
I didn't really eat much because there were way too many distractions ;)
After dinner, Dada let me play with my new "bubble wand." It is really cool and blows lots of really big bubbles.  I can now say 'bubbles' too so I kept asking Dada for more 'bubbles.'
After the bubbles we went to see the horses.  They all really liked me, but Mommy was scared they would eat my foot, so I couldn't get too close.  I call horses and all other animals with 4 legs GAWGS (i.e. dogs), so I kept yelling 'GAWG' at the horse.  We both thought it was funny.
On Sunday after church and my nap (which by the way, most of the time these days I only take 1 nap - I am getting to be such a big girl!) we went to the zoo!  This was my 1st time being at the zoo when I knew how to walk.  I did NOT want to be in my stroller, but exploring all these interesting animals (GAWGS!).  I spent most of the time on Dada's shoulders when Mommy and Daddy got tired of waiting on me.  I can't help it I have short legs!
We had a lot of fun!  I enjoy the zoo more and more each time I go.  I am really interested in all the animals, but always prefer the petting zoo.  Here is me outside the birds and the bees exhibit.
And here is me outside the polar bear exhibit (of course I won't sit still long enough for a picture)
We had so much fun together this weekend.  I love pretty weather and spending time with Mama and Dada!

pardon, ma'am, but what is your mother thinking taking you to learn about the birds and the bees? shouldn't that wait for when obama teaches you in kindergarten?
