Girl Time with Riah

 This morning, I dropped Keenan off at C.C. since Caleb had a fever and couldn't go in the nursery.   We went back home, and while Caleb took a nap, Moriah and I had some long overdue "girl time". =)

 Tea party

After our tea party, I told her she could choose whatever she wanted for us to do with the remainder of our time....

 First up, coloring

 Next, Memory

Last, we played with babies (I got to play with Diana, my own doll from my childhood!)

What a delightful time we had!  After I was able to forget about the dishes that needed to be done, and the rest of the (non refrigerated) groceries that needed to be put away... I had so much fun, just enjoying my sweet girl. =)

Gulf Breeze Zoo

After living her for over five years, we finally took our first trip to the Gulf Breeze Zoo yesterday (40 minutes away)!

Philip was home and it was a gorgeous day!!   The zoo isn't very big, but just the perfect size, to be able to see everything and the kids not get too tired out.  They had quite an impressive selection of animals, too!

The best part was that at the beginning, we bought a cup of feed, and the kids could feed a LOT of the animals!

This was the first guy we saw, I think he's adorable!!

Feeding a Llama

These goats were all fighting over it! =)

Beautiful Budgies in the Apiary

The otters were one of the highlights for us, since they were so active and funny!

Not sure what this look is all about

So cute!

Funny guy


Another highlight was feeding the giraffes!

Keenan had to get on Philip's shoulders to reach

Look at that tongue!

It was so funny and scratchy! =)

Moriah on Safari

I was delighted to see that they had Tigers!

The one on the ground rolled over on his back and swatted at the one walking by

Fat, happy Gator

Bored Chimps



Don't know what this is

He probably walked Miles in baby steps!

The bear gave us a funny little show!


This sneaky camel stole our feed cup!

"Psst!  Hey!  You know what?"
"I like to move it, move it!"

All in all, a great day at the zoo!  There is also a train ride available, that we will do next time!
