This post is just going to be pictures of our first zoo trip of the year. Enjoy!
Carly's view of the zoo mostly came from her stroller today

sea lions

see the giant frog?

just after this picture was taken that camel stood up and farted so loud that everyone 
along the wall was laughing hysterically - Cain could stop talking about it

riding the carousal

Carly wasn't impressed by the carousal

couldn't get a great picture of the zebra

walking through the water tunnel

We had such a fun day! It was kind of overcast but warm. Not a ton of people on a week day and it was amazing to have a spontaneous family day. Hoping we have many more zoo trips this summer.

Happy Mommy Day

My morning conversation with Cain -

Cain: Mommy it's a happy Mommy day today. (so enthusiastically)

Me: It is? What does that mean?

Cain: It means you get to make me pancakes for breakfast!

Pancakes it is kid :)

Random Facts About Me

I don't know if I've ever done one of these on my blog or not but I love reading other people's. So here are some random things about myself...

#1 - I can not use regular ear buds. I have to use the squishy kind that go in your ear or they just fall out. I have weird ears.

#2 - I am a clean freak. I can't stop cleaning. all. of. the. things. I don't like things to be unorganized or out of place. Organization makes me happy.

#3 - I love chocolate. There isn't much to say about that, I just love chocolate.

#4 - My feet grew when I was pregnant (along with every other part of my body) and now I wear a size bigger shoe then I wore my entire adult life.

#5 - I am getting gray hair already :/

#6 - One of my favorite things to do is drive alone while I blast the radio and sing as loudly as possible.

#7 - I had the chicken pox twice as a child.

#8 - I'm addicted to social media.

#9 - I failed my drivers test the first time I took it.

#10 - I cry when I am really happy or when I am really sad.

#11 - I am not a very good cook. :(

#12 - I want to travel and especially travel with my kids when they are a little bit older. I haven't traveled much and I want my kids to have these experiences.

#13 -  I've never had to wear glasses or contacts in my life.

#14 - I don't like to try new foods. I don't like this about myself and yet I still don't try new foods.

#15 - I love camping and being on the water. My dad lived on the lake while I was growing up and I miss it.

#16 - I'm just starting to get the hang of this "stay at home mom" gig - 10 months into it.

#17 - I love throwing parties! My kids birthday parties are my favorite ones to plan :)

#18 - I love jewelry but it's not really practical for me to wear most of the time. So I "collect" it for the times that I can wear it. If that makes any sense at all.

#19 - I have lived in Michigan my entire life and every winter I ask myself WHY

#20 - I hope that my 30's are better then my 20's. I hope my family knows how much I love them. I hope I am a good mother. I am overwhelmed by hopes :)

For Easter weekend...

we went up north and spent time with our family. I took a bajillion pictures and wanted to share a bunch with you. We had a great time with great family and enjoyed great weather and great food. And everything was great - great - great.
