Zoo Day

Last Friday Eric, Linden and I went to the Dallas Zoo. We had a blast. It wasn't to hot and all the animals were out and about. Linden enjoyed seeing the gorillas again. Timbo was sitting by the glass so he got to get up close with her. She is known to kiss the glass and be friendly with zoo goers and she didn't disappoint. I let Linden walk up to the glass and she looked at him and then placed her hand (in a fist) on the glass and Linden returned the gesture by giving her bumps! It was the sweetest thing ever. Sadly there were lots of other kids and people around so Eric didn't get a pic, or even get to see it. In the children's area Linden loved seeing the chickens, sheep, and ducks. He also got to pet a giant bunny which he thought was cool. The male tiger was fun to watch! He got into his pool of water to get cool. He looked like he was in heaven in that water! He loved the giraffe's and they seem to be his new favorite animal right now. We also enjoyed seeing Jenny the elephant and her new friend Gypsy. We are looking forward to their home being finished next year. Of course no zoo trip would be complete without a stop in the gift shop! And it was there were Daddy bought Linden two new stuffed animals. A Giraffe and a Meerkat! We gave him the Meerkat when we got into the van and he just loved it! Once we got home we gave him the giraffe and he now Carry's them both around where ever he goes. If he is in the living room they have to be, if he is sleeping they must sleep with him. Its to cute! I need to get pictures of him with them. But for now here are some pictures of the zoo.

Just Hanging Out...

It's been a bit since our last post. Not to much going on to chat about. We have just been playing and having fun and at the same time trying to stay cool. Here are some new pics of Linden just hanging out.

Linden and Malika playing ball. She looks so mean.

What gets me up in the morning....

Playing on the steps on our walk. He climbs up and down the steps a million times.

New stuff....

So we had an extremely busy weekend. With Linden's Eye, then shopping for Linden's room and the patio....we had a lot going on....hence lots of post in one day.

Let's start with Linden's room. We went and bought Linden a BIG bag of Mega Blocks. He had a small set that he got with a toy at Christmas from some lovely friends of Mimi's and loved them. He would sit forever just playing with them. So, we bought a set of 250 of them!! And we also bought him a organizer tub self to keep some of his smaller toys in. I love this thing because its not to tall and he can reach everything and see whats there to play with. Some of his smaller fave. toys always fell to the bottom of his toy box and he could never get to them! In getting this new shelf we had to move things around.

So here are some Pics!

His bedroom as a whole...well, I guess as a half...you are missing the back half of the room, but its unchanged.

A updated look at the stuffed animal pile! We counted...we are up to over 100!

In the Dinning room I finally finished the wreath I started and got it hung. Here it is...
And a look at the overall wall... You can see our nifty wine holder that we got from Ikea. It was empty at the time, but now its full...I will have to get a pic with it full so you can get the full effect. But this will have to do for now. Also, I moved Denim to the bar. I was tired of moving him from the table.

Here is a close up of My lil Denim! I love him!

And here is my new center piece. It will never be as good as Denim, but I think Denim is happy were he is now.

And as if that wasn't enough....We did more Patio Gardening! We pulled up the old Grass that was dying and looking blah and put down some new stuff. We added some lattice for the Morning Glory's and Sweet Peas to climb. We took the tomatoes out of the 3 tier planter and put them in a new pot and added new flowers to the 3 tier and added a second 3 tier of flowers. We took the daisy's down and put them in a new pot and put new flowers in the old planter. I added a hanger of Sweet Potato Vine (I can't wait for it to take off!) We got a Wisteria to go in between the Jasmine. Added a Hibiscus. And last but not least....we got Seymore!! Seymore is my new baby! We will talk about Seymore in a bit...

Close up looks.......

How do you hide the satellite bucket you ask? hehe

And then there is ....Seymore!

Seymore is a Pitcher Plant. He is in the family of Fly Traps. He catches bugs in his "pitchers"! Isn't he the coolest!!

Ok...So that's what I did this weekend...... What did you do?
