York Zoo 2011 and other weekend things

Is it just me, or is making family memories, like.. the BEST thing, in the entire world.

I mean, seeing joy on my son's face, when he is fasinated, or surprised, or proud, or learning something new,
this is what this momma breathes for.

My goal in life. My purpose, to bring joy to my children, to make sure they know they are love, and safe and supported no matter what. But until He grows up on me, right now in this stage, I.LOVE.ME.SOME.MEMORIES...

Today we took our SECOND annual trip to the zoo, not just any zoo, AN ANIMAL KINGDOM!!
you may remember last years trip

This year we went about a month later.
BUT THANK GOODNESS WE DID, or We would have missed this!!

not just monkies, which yes, are my favorite animal  EVER!

BUT BABY monkies, arent they just so. cute??

Austin also rode his first horse, ever! No fear, just eagerness. He was silently taking it all in.

There were, of course ducks. Which if you remember, he LOVES!

My second favorite animal today, were these guys, which by the way, I knew the name of, before we found the sign.. thank you very much!

CAPYBARAs, the worlds largest rodent.
looks like a giant hamster, eh?

But, by far, Austin's favorite animal, no matter what zoo we go to, are the DEER. But the cool thing about York is, you get to go in with them, walk with them, pet them, feed them. so he really loved it!

see his little hands at the bottom?
Other sights we saw

And last but not least, we let Austin pick a souvanier, he chose the pressed pennies, one with a Elephant, and one with a monkey ( thats my boy)

HE got to help daddy crank the dial too.

We had a great trip, a great time just us three, and came home to play in the yard, soaking up what's left of nice sunny afternoons, where you dont need flannel to survive ( not that Im complaining, I LOVE AUTUMN!!)

trying to get  ready for Tee ball, hes not that bad!

but of course, 'pooh' comes with him everywhere he goes

Other things we did this weekend included:

french toast for breakfast

taking a 7am walk ( brrr)

painting for the first time

not daddys first time, but he did have lots of fun

really concentrated

artwork, that is going on our artwork wall ( I just invented that)
And ALL day Friday I spent making, home made ( I might add, yes pat pat) Joaquins 3rd Birthday cake.

It came out nicvely, but boy was I tired after all was said and done. I hope he likes it.
heres a preveiw.

Of course, we have a very specical party tomorrow, and Austin is super excited to give Keke his gift, because Austin got to pick it out, even the card, alll by himself. He is very proud.

So, goodnight, sweet dreams, and happy memory making.
