Let's go to the Zoo!

I had a GREAT first Mother's Day!
The KC Zoo was offering a special where all moms got in free so we headed off for the afternoon.
It was super hot and sunny, but thanks to little mans 3 1/2 hour nap (!!!) he did awesome and seemed to enjoy his first zoo outing....at least as much as a 9 month old can! 







 After the zoo we headed off for a little late lunch/early dinner.  We've actually been doing it a lot lately on the weekends.  Yeah so we look like old people.  Who cares!  We beat the rush and don't have to deal with an overtired baby!  I even managed to sneak in a few more photos when we got home in the ole backyard.  (I think Jamie and I got more pictures taken together today than in his whole first 9 months combined!)
 He's been admiring the beautiful necklace he picked out all day.  Though I think the hubs may have had a little something to do with it too.  Either way it's perfect!  Inscribed is the word "mother" in 32 different languages.


Happy Monday!

Gorgeous necklace! Love it! :) Fun day at the zoo for sure. He's kiiinda adorable. Happy belated Mother's Day. I thought of you yesterday, friend. A happy day, but also likely a heavy one. Sending love.

We took Tucker to the zoo for the first time on Mother's Day too! Except we missed naptime and had an epic meltdown at bedtime - lesson learned! Glad you had such a great day!

Ahhh, I do love me some animals at the zoo! I can't believe how big your boy is getting either. I told you time flies, didn't I?

I'm so glad you had a nice Mother's Day and I love all the pics, especially the one of you and Jaime with the elephant. The necklace you got is so pretty!

Your necklace is beautiful!

We went out to eat early on Saturday evening too. There were literally tons of old folks there. I had to laugh... but I didn't care!
