A day at the zoo.... AKA my life.

 I'll apologize first off for the photo intense post- I hope it doesn't take too long to load for you!
 I finally took a few days off this week- Monday, we took EK to her ENT, Dr. Hollier in Shreveport.  All was well there, her breathing has improved and tubes are clear. My mother in law and I ran by the Carter's store in the Boardwalk and got all kinds of cute things for the munch.

Ryan got a new tractor Thursday. I am so happy for him... he has wanted one for a long, long time. To top it all off, we got rid of this old thing, which helped pay for the tractor! Craigslist works, the man who bought the Blazer drove almost 6 hours to get it, and paid what we were asking!

 Friday, I took off so that Ryan and I could take EK to the zoo. She was such a little trooper for the hour and a half drive! She let us eat at Chipotle before we got to the zoo, and rode in her stroller most of the time without any griping (this is rare- she always wants to walk run). I can't say enough good things about the Caldwell Zoo in Tyler- it is clean, inexpensive, shady, and always a good time.


The bird sanctuary is my favorite part of the Tyler Zoo- you can buy little popsicle sticks coated with bird seed for $1, and feed the birds. It is so much fun!

I am desperately trying to convince Ryan that we need goats :)

YES! Fall action. This girl is tough!

What? I can only get two?

In addition to the fun times, we got to PLAY. I love when I have time to just stop and relax with my babies-

Until next time (which is hopefully not a week away)-
