mom & leyton picked me up at 12:30 & we went to happy joe's/rudy's for a lunch buffet. it was the end of the buffet time, so selections were not 100%, but it was still very yummy! their enchiladas were my favorite!
scraped his knee up yesterday at wendy's - but it's looking better already today!
am loving his cutely funny facial expressions!!
next we went to the zoo! leyton was of course excited! : )
lookin' cool & relaxed on the train
she made this elephant statue look quite spiffy!
the real elephant was twisting & trying to break this piece of plastic. idk if she was trying to make some art or what... : )
after allowing a goat to feed out of your hands, it's best to sanitize!! : )
if there is an animal i love as much as turtles, it would be the giraffe!! we had JUST missed feeding time. leyton was a little disappointed (me, too!)!
before we left, we took a breather to watch the train come thru the tunnel. there's a convenient gazebo w/ benches right there! : )
after the zoo, since we were on that side of the river, we stopped by nick's again to see if bret was home & if we could get the duffels. bret wasn't home, but nick was, and so mom was able to get daddy's bag. mine wasn't there, and bret finally responded to mom & said he didn't have it. then i texted him & he did actually have a whole conversation w/ me about it. however, nothing really resolved. at this point, i don't even know if misha actually DID give him the bag - she wasn't sure, either, but was going to look for it... bother! but, if only one bag could be recovered, i'm glad it was daddy's. i can buy a new bag... ya know? and i have the bag i got in alaska to use, it's just small & i usually use it for overnights, not 4 days/3 nights! but like tim gunn says, i'll make it work!! : )
we went to DD for iced coffees & a coolatta for leyton & he & i split a donut as well. YUMMY!
then leyton & i hung out here while mom went to WM & we had so much fun!!! : ) we played w/ his new Cars ball outside until it started to rain. then we came inside, played cars & jumped, watched thomas & ate popcorn & snuggled til mom got here.
seriously, that hat is too cute!!!
there were some pretty intense storms tonight w/ crazy straight-line winds!! apparently some of those picked up carts at target! yikes! and joplin, missouri... oh, what is going on w/ all these tornadoes everywhere???
ending on an upside, cuz i have GOT TO GO TO BED! lol i got to chat w/ joy for awhile tonight, after such a long time!!! very happy!! : ) (now, to just get a convo in w/ april soon - if you have time to read this, i hope your week is less hectic & BLESSED!) in a week i'll be hanging out w/ joyums, too. yay!!!!
have a great night/day & may the Lord bless & keep you safe tomorrow!
