Zoo Day!

A great day was had by all!  A little cold in the morning but really warmed up later in the afternoon.

Ellie’s first trip to the Zoo!

Family! That look on Ellie’s face . . . lol . . . !!

Wooden tokens for the carousel.

Not impressed, lol.  We were more excited than she was.

This girl . . . she’s getting too big!! Sitting up so straight – she was actually waving to all her fans. LOL

Bunny Trail Mix

Standard

Belley and I had a few days together last week while mom and dad had a little get-away.  We were going to meet Amie, Ellie and some friends at the zoo so we made up some trail mix for a snack.  Annie’s Snicker Doodle Bunnies (delicious & from Target), mini-marshmallows, raisins, Easter colored M&M’s and some Pink Princess Goldfish.

Very Yummy!

And if you’re making Bunnie Trailmix for your friends, you must have cute Bunny Snack Bags!

3rd Place!!

Annual Spelling Bee – Owen has never competed in something like this before . . . they started with 17 . . .

two hours later, down to the top 4 . . . .
