Lovin' the Sun

Meg LOVES water of any kind. You may remember this from last summer. Here is the daily (at least the last three sunny days) progression of her time outside.

"I bet it would be fun to get into the water's like a mini pool"
"I might as well get the full effect"

(notice that I forgot to change her into a swim diaper. This thing weighed like 9 pounds when we took it off)

This part lasts until I turn the hose off and say, "oops there's no more water....all gone."
She would just sit in the middle of this sprinkler being pelted with (freezing) water all day long. She usually has purple lips and chattering teeth when I turn it off.
Poor girl....she is perfectly happy with 3 inches of water to sit in and a 3' circular sprinkler. She needs a pool! She literally greeted me in her crib this morning with, "wanna put simsuit on?" (that is a statement disguised as a question.)

New Look

Well, I decided it was time for a fresh look. Especially since my header pic was from the week Meg turned 1 and she will 2 in a month and a half. I REALLY wanted to Shauna to come up with another beautiful creation for me, but there is not a "blog design" envelope in our Dave Ramsey budget plan and I keep spending my Miscellaneous envelope on other things. I will have to save up for that.

That being said, I am somewhat proud of what I was able to put together with the help of free downloads and backgrounds from TCBOTB. It is not as wonderful as Shauna could have done, but it will work for now. Besides, it took me FOREVER to figure it all out. I don't have that much time on my hands.

The Zoo with Friends

We had a wonderful time at the FW Zoo this morning thanks to our wonderful friends who invited us along to use their season passes. Thanks, Mike and Mandy.

These pictures are going to be totally out of order, primarily because I am too tired to care. Meg loved seeing all of her favorite animals, riding the carousel, running ALL over the zoo (literally) and especially sharing it with her best friend Merrick. They are so funny together.

I am still shocked that Chad went into the bird place. He is so scared of birds! I guess it was worth it for him to see Meg so still and intrigued.

Two Good Dads

Meg would absolutely go right up to the animals if she could. She has no fears! I don't even like her to get close to the 10' fence above the lion or bear caves. I envision her jumping in.
Obviously Chad didn't listen to me....that is a bear down there!

Sweet Merrick.

What a fun day with great friends

My Girl

Just sharing some sweet pictures of Meg wrestling with her big bunny.
She is so much fun to try and capture on camera.
