Another great day at the Zoo!

It might be overkill but on Sunday we went to the Zoo as a family and had the cousins join us for the fun. We got there early so the carousel was free and the kids rode it two or three times before venturing off to the penguins and train. Another beautiful day and the most memorable weekend of my motherhood.

First school picnic

Well Carolyn had her first school picnic. Different than most by offering bubbles and dry, colored rice tables to play with, she had a blast. She even got to walk across the stage and recieve her hat and new bookbag, loaded with school supplies for the Fall. She is very much looking forward to school .

One Amazing day

So Friday was quite possibly the best day of my life. We (a friend and I)started the day at the Zoo watching the children discover new things. Jonathan rode the train for the first time and LOVED it and he also was fascinated with seeing the animals which was awesome to see as a mother. Then Carolyn was having a great time with friends and loved the beautiful outdoors. Later that evening, Evan and I celebrated our 6th anniversary with a dinner cruise down the Mississippi river at sunset and had an amazing time dancing on the top deck of the boat ALONE as we pushed off and the sun set. Why others didn't get the idea not to eat right away and watch the setting sun over the arch grounds and glissening on the river, I have no idea. The weather was perfect. The day was perfect.
