We went to the Audubon Zoo and...

Stella and I enjoyed a spectacular Saturday together. Since Daddy was busy working, we had a rare opportunity to spend some girl time with a couple of our friends. Here's Randie quizzing Stella on some important math facts. Education first! Since I spent the majority of my pregnancy at John L. Ory, Stella got very used to hearing Randie's voice and gets so excited to see her. Randie helped Stella get all dolled up so she could show off a new outfit. Her cousins sent this to her for Christmas and it is cute and sassy! Stella really thought she was hot stuff and got compliments all day long. After our lunch date with Randie, we picked up Jamie and headed to the Audubon Zoo. I'm sure you can imagine who they were all asking for. Stella was intrigued by this giant tortoise roaming free outside the petting zoo area. She wanted to know where the hare was. It was mother-daughter day at the zoo. This anteater had a tough time getting her baby off of her back. Here are Stella and Jamie checking out one of the albino alligators. Stella was actually just feigning interest in the gator. She was trying to distract the adults long enough to get what she really wanted.... ...which was Jamie's root beer. Stella just had one question for that gator, "Are you friends with Claude?" Stella also had some tough questions for the young man at the box turtle exhibit. I am such a sucker for these things. Our final stop of the day turned out to be Stella's favorite. We'll have to go back soon so that we can catch the sea lion show.

What a fun day!!!! I wanted to take our girls to the zoo, but it's not nearly as spectacular. Getting the house all cleaned up...we're having a Super Bowl bash at the house tomorrow, and I don't want people to see the way we really live. :)

I cried for hours after looking at it. You may not want to because it's gut wrenching, but it's a good reminder to be thankful.
Love you!

Oh, that was such a fun blog to read! And I loved all the pictures. Stella does look sassy in her outfit!!! Looks like Stella had the time of her life---so far at least since she is only 10 months old. Those gators looked much smarted than Claude.

I meant smarter not smarted.

Oh, by the way your Grandpa said that the tv y'all gave him went out and he had to put his old one back in the cowboy theater.
