My Sweeties on Saturday

Devon volunteered to serve breakfast for our church youth group at Applebees on Saturday. He was the youngest volunteer and did a GREAT job!

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope all the moms, stepmoms, grandmothers and god mothers in our lives had a great mother's day yesterday!

We started my mother's day at the zoo with my sister Kelly. I hadn't been in years and thought it would be a fun, family treat for the kids. Well, I quickly remembered why we don't go very often. The Houston Zoo, in my personal opinion, is a disappointment. Most of the exhibits you can barely see the animal because they are hiding or if you are lucky enough to get a glimpse of them, it is their rear end. That does not make for an excited almost 2 year old! She did like seeing the giraffes, elephants and monkeys. Thankfully they were up close and personal. Devon's favorite animal and sighting was the tiger even though he was ALL the way in the back. Figures!

After the zoo, we headed home for nap time, B slept 3 hours! We relaxed the rest of the afternoon before meeting Gigi, Dodo & Kelly at Los Cucos for dinner. The service was slow but the dinner was yummy!

Crib Climber

Over the weekend, I heard Brooklyn calling Mommy, Mommy, Mommyyy and then Bubba, Bubba, Bubbaaaa from my room. I went to see what she had found and to my surprise she was sitting in her crib. Puzzled - I asked Devon why he put Brooklyn in her crib, he said he didn't that she climbed into it herself. I took my little monkey out and asked her to show me how she got in. This is her journey into her bed :)

Guess its time to take off the rail before she breaks her neck!
