TRAVEL | Tulsa Zoo

Friday, June 21, 2013

Father's Day 2013! Daddy's 2nd Father's Day and we celebrated by taking a trip to the Tulsa Zoo in Oklahoma! I first want to say I was so proud of you for doing so well during the car ride-I think you could tell Mommy and Daddy were excited on the way there so you were a little rowdy and screaming, but you danced for about 20 minutes and finally fell asleep. We got lost on the way there because the exit we were supposed to take was closed so that was kind of funny to watch daddy freak out. We finally got there and got you sunscreened up and headed in! I thought you would for sure fall asleep at some point during the day, since we were interrupting your nap time but you didn't, you loved standing at the glass for the sea-lion show and watching the monkeys! We tried to get as many family pictures as possible with our fancy camera timer but I think they failed each time, HA! You are such an awesome baby! It rained on us a little bit but we enjoyed it cause it was so hot that day!

We were all done and were trying to find somewhere to eat and Daddy had never been to the Cheesecake Factory and so we decided that's where we would go. You fell asleep on the way there, but woke up ready to eat! You had a gourmet grilled cheese and fries and mommy and daddy both had a burger followed by Hershey Chocolate Cheesecake, which you loved!!! So much fun! Stuffed and ready to rest, we headed home and you slept majority of the way {so did mommy}! We got back and all slept great that night! Needless to say, your first trip to the Zoo was a success! Love you, sweet girl!

MCKINLEE | Summer Fun

Well, I couldn't decide if I wanted to wait and do an 18 month update or if I should just update each month! I'm afraid I won't remember everything if I wait, so here's what you've been up to since you turned one! We are only working 1-2 days a week with Reesa and Reags so we have gotten lots of Mommy-Sissy time! We usually wake up about 8:15 {sometimes 9}, you nurse, then eat breakfast usually some Cheerios and applesauce, then we pickup the house and get ready for whatever activity I planned. Lately, we've been hanging out at aunt Robyn's swimming or with Ms. Tawny playing with the kiddos! Then we're home by 5:30 most nights to meet daddy! Then we have dinner, bath time and bed about 8:30. Mommy does homework until about 11 or 12 then I get some sleep, then we start all over :)

We've been practicing walking as much as we can! With a walker, mommy holding one hand and along the couch. You are getting so, so skinny! Once the rolls on your legs are gone I'm going to be so sad! You love chicken nuggets and grilled cheese. You loved squash off the grill the other day but not a fan of green bean casserole unless its off of mommy's plate. You love swimming, not so much getting into your little floaters, but once I get you in there you LOVE it! You weren't  sure about the splash park at first, but had fun when you finally relaxed! Trying to keep you from getting sunburnt is going to be my biggest challenge this summer! I think that's about it!

Cue picture overload:
