Zoo Trip

Yesterday, we took advantage of the beautiful weather and visited the Zoo.  It's a great excuse to get out of the house for a short period of time and Emily loves seeing the animals.  She likes it even more when we join friends.  We went with, "Emee's friend Car-car."  Thanks for going with us Christina and Carter:)

Auntie Pammy, Uncle Mikey, and Tinsley adopted an elephant for Emily and this was the first time we got to see her name displayed.  Emily says, "Thank you!"

Weekend Fun

It's so rare that we have a weekend that isn't full with obligations.  This weekend was so much fun!  Saturday morning my mom, Em, and I went to Farmer's Market and then did a little shopping.  We ended with lunch at La Bou which is one of my favorite spots.  Saturday night we decided to check out the festivities at Gazebo Gardens with some friends.  They had 7 food trucks to choose from, beer on tap, and a live band.  It was something different to do and we really enjoyed it.  On Sunday morning Kevin, Emily, and I went to Woodward Park for a leisure walk and to play on the equipment and feed the ducks.  The weather could not have been more beautiful for February.   It was a great weekend!

The food from Tako BBQ was amazing!

Dark photo but a better one than the one below with the flash.

Snow Day

This last weekend we went up to Shaver to spend time with friends and play in the snow.  At 7000 feet there was enough snow to play in. It wasn't spectacular but it worked.  This was the first time Emily could get around a little better in the snow.  She had lots of fun riding down the hill with her daddy.  She also loved watching the bigger kids play.  Thanks Mike & Pam for inviting us!!!

Love, Kisses, and Valentine Wishes

Valentines is another holiday that I love.  Any excuse to decorate and dress Emily up is fun for me.  Here are some pics of what we were up to this month.
