We are enjoying a nice surprise week off! John mis-read his orders and isn't attached to anyone this week between his classes so we're going to have a week of fun.
First off: a Mommy morning out shopping (dire need of some updated clothes now that I don't have to whip out the ladies ever two hours to nurse). No kids, no worries. Just me and a huge mall!
Then, we headed to the zoo for some fun.
|Turner insisted on a long sleeve shirt and these way too short pants!|
|Success! Eli is out of pajamas!|
|"Chewbaka" aka Pepper the Orangutan. The kids think she looks like Chewy from Star Wars.|
|One of my new dresses. It makes me look so small. I think I'll keep it forever!|
|Such a fantastic Daddy!!|
|Poor Dunks, he's been cutting a tooth for a few days and has been pulling on his ear.|
|Swinging made him smile...|
|...until he decided he had some beef with the swing hardware.|
|Rare form: not smiling!|
After a nice short afternoon at the zoo we decided to hit up a local institution, Doumar's. Luckily, we had a DVD in the car so the kids had the extra special treat of scarfing down a hamburger, fries and a shake while watching the Jungle Book!
|Can't get much more American that that!|
