The day after..a day off..

So I took yesterday off! The weather has been beautiful here lately. 80's and sunny.. Not too humid a little breeze. So yesterday Mom, Sister, Owen and I went to the zoo. We have a free zoo here that had all kinds of stuff. Let's just say they call it a zoo for a reason. It was so packed that we drove around for at least 20 minutes looking for a parking spot. Glad that I was not driving.. I think we only saw 3 or 4 people leave and we happened to find a spot asking people along the way if they were leaving.. We went to the butterfly "tent".. It's not really a tent but it's a temporary exhibit. It was full of people and kids that are not as well behaved as Owen. Running around an touching things... Ak! But H took lots of pictures and I'm kind of excited to see them. Then we went and looked at the Giraffes because Owen wanted to see them.. And one was licking the building and one was licking the pole that holds the giant umbrellas that shade them.. So then we went to eat and then came home all of us trying to get O to take a nap- I think mostly because we all wanted to take one! But that didn't work.. But I was so tired last night that I could hardly do anything. But I wasn't going to have a repeat of Sunday night when I fell asleep on the floor for 2 hours and then slept like shit when I went to bed.. So overall it was nice.
And I'm excited because I have a few peas growing. And I always forget to take pictures of all this stuff but maybe I'll get around to it.. And I'm going to do something for Kim. She has to answer some questions for a newsletter at work (because she is a newer employee) so this is for you Kim..

My weekend was pretty good.. I played cribbage with the B/F and then Sunday was lawn care day and it was warm and sunny that day so I was just tired after that.. Nothing to exciting. But it was nice weather Ohhh. no it wasn't. Saturday this pouring rain storm came through and we were at Target and you couldn't even see the parking lot. It was crazy and it flooded the roads and in one spot the water was so deep I thought that my car was going to die or something.. It was like the whole road was flooded and this lady was coming (and since I've never driven on a flooded road before I didn't think about the wake created by the other car) and so I hit her wake and it was so crazy B/F said something like "ohhhh, that's not good.. give it some gas" and I was like 'I am" and then we made it and then when I got out of my car there were leaved and "debris" in the bottom part of the door.. it was crazy. But we needed the rain.. so it was cool..
Well. I guess that's all I really have.. Maybe tonight I won't be lazy and I will take some pictures. Thanks for stopping by!

You have been going out with the B/F that long?! WOW. Very cool.

(Thanks, now I have motivation & ideas for my own questionnaire!!)

I don't know if Owen was so well behaved or if he was just scared! Fear makes you act a little less crazy!
Favorite childhood memory... like maybe when you hit me in the head with the zim-zam paddle!? Or when we made cities with the barbie stuff and the couch cushions?? Do you remember NOTHING??
