{I'm back!}

blog, how i have missed thee...

It has been far too long since I have shared stories of our daily fun and adventures. Time has passed, and I have gotten quite out of my routine! A few rough patches and heartaches have affected myself and my family, but with those hard times came wonderful memories and milestones. My tiny little sunbeam has brightened even the darkest days, and his smile has helped heal my wounds.

Thank you to each and every one of your for your love and compassion over the past few months - I am so truly blessed to have you in my life.

I hope to catch up a bit where I left off, forgive me for the photo-overload over the next few weeks! I hope I haven't lost all my fun friends - I love knowing you are reading and following along in our fun. <3

Zoo Friends

Today was a BEAUTIFUL day!! We peeled ourselves out of bed when Dylan decided it was time to get up, and Ryan made us Rollie Pollies and bacon for breakfast. Then we packed ourselves up and headed to the ZOO! Ryan surprised Dylan and I with a Zoo Friends membership for the year. We were so excited to spend some time outside, take D to see all the animals for the first time, and give Ryan an opportunity to use his awesome new lens.

We got to the zoo - Dylan in a super cute new summer outfit - only to find out he had a blowout on the drive over! (You remember what those look like right?) *gulp* The awesome cargo tray in the Mommy Mobile is a life(back)saver when it comes to diaper changes. Grandma and Grandpa babysat critter last night, and they fed him a smorgasbord of yummy fruits. Saving you the gruesome details, that never looks good coming out the other end. 1000 wipes later he was clean enough to sit up and de-clothe. At which point in time he took the opportunity to pee...all over my car. By this time, all we could do was break into hysterical laughter. Oh the joys :)

So we had an eventful start to the zoo to say the least! The weather was perfect, so the zoo was packed! We got to use a ZF perk from the get-go, and zoomed past the giant line to the members entrance. Don't we feel fancy?! Yes! Almost all the animals were out to say hello. Here are a few ton of our favorite shots from the day!
