This past weekend the kids and I drove up to Dallas to spend the weekend with Daddy, who's up there on business. We packed in a few fun things, but for now I'm just going to show you one of them - because it was THE COOLEST THING EVER!!! We took the kids to the Dallas Zoo, where they got to feed a giraffe!! Some photos...

Here little giraffe, do you want some yummy lettuce?

Well hello there beautiful. Hungry?

Carter feeding the giraffe.

And Courtney.

He was so happy to be fed he even let Daddy pet him.

Thank you for a thrill today, gorgeous giraffe!

This was part of the newly-opened Giants of the Savanna exhibit. It's absolutely beautiful, you really must go see it!

Oh but maybe not in July - it was Africa HOT there in the African savanna! Ugh. But so worth sweating our way through to get to feed a giraffe!!

Our little ballerina!

Courtney has started ballet classes! She's taking a Kindertots class down at the Lakeway community center. There are two other little girls in her class, and Miss Angela is her teacher.

Its officially the cutest thing in the history of Courtney. :-)

While Courtney is dancing, Carter and I wait out in the lobby area. Carter brings toys or crafts to do. And he acts generally silly.

Love Tuesday mornings!!

Happy 4th of July!

Hi there! Yes, I've been terrible about updating this blog! We've done a lot over the past few months, so I'm going to work on getting it all updated here soon. At any rate - I hope you all had a great 4th of July! We had a nice day - a neighborhood kiddie parade in the morning, family over for a cookout in the afternoon and then fireworks in the evening. Here are some photos:

Our Yankee Doodle Cuties getting ready for the parade! Our friends Rachel & Derek (and parents Cindy & Brian) walked the parade with us.

Walking the parade route...

Our cake for the cookout. Carter did ALL of the cutting on the strawberries himself!

Uncle Brad, Aunt Laura & Morgan went with us to the fireworks in Cedar Park. It was really nice! The weather even cooperated, it was decent out and not boiling. Some more photos...

Happy 4th!
