Love is in the Air

The love was definitely in the air this year for Valentines Day. I like Valentines Day, I don't love it, but I really like it. I know alot of people think there shouldn't be just ONE day a year that you should show your special someone that you love them, and neither do I. However, I think it can be fun surprising them or just doing something a little extra on that day....no biggie! Anyways, I will now get off my soapbox and share some pics from our day!
Britton LOVED spoiling Braelyn with some cute little things....
She got a balloon, a rose, a cute puppy...
And two little chocolates! Here she is with her love loot...

Braelyn girl....
She's in the middle of saying "Cheese!!!!"

London was not to be forgotten on Valentines either though. Britton was so cute and got her a little rose too! I'm sure she'll never for it! ;>
LOVE this cute picture though....



And here is our sweet Londy in her Valentines get-up...



And here is just one of the sweet things my hubby got for me.....2 dozen roses!
BEAUTIFUL!
Hope everyone else had a sweet day too!

London fun

The other day London was in an especially happy mood, so I had to take advantage of it! She is such a good natured baby, and played right along...
Caught a little smile.....

This has the "come hither" look to it...adorable!

This is one of her favorite places to chill...her swing

Or you might catch her dozing on the couch...
And obviously having sweet, happy dreams!
We just LOVE this sweet girl, and are so blessed to have her in our lives! Love you London!

Peter Piper Pizza

A couple weeks ago we got to got to Peter Piper Pizza to celebrate Ellie's (our niece) birthday!!! Isn't she SasSy?! She's such a sweet girl, and we had a blast! And boy did she have some good birthday luck!!!! She won 1000 tickets on one game...jackpot! She was pretty excited though you could hardly tell.......
Braelyn had so much fun too. This was one of her favorite rides to do.....


And she LOVED this one too! Don't mind her angry green friend! I don't know why she liked this one so much...creepy!!!


London had fun too although she wasn't very good at the games, so she just hung out with mom and dad...

Braelyn with some of her ticket stash. She did well with the tickets...280 I think!
donut time...

Zoo time

I feel like I have so many things to catch up on blogging about!!! SO, lets start here....a visit to the Zoo!!!! I actually got a year pass so we can go whenever we want! I love this zoo (World Wildlife Zoo) because for one it's only like 10 minutes from my house, and two I love how close you feel to the animals (not in a sentimental way or anything, but literally closer to them than other zoos! ;>). Braelyn had so much fun, and I can't wait to take her again. London slept the ENTIRE time, and didn't stir once!!! She will have to have her first zoo experience another time! Braelyn feeding the giraffes.....I wasn't too sure if she would do it, but she surprised me and wanted to! She still talks about it!

We also rode on the carosel that they have there. Umm, let me just say that that thing goes faster than one might think! Braelyn LOVED it though.


Braelyn and her friend Macie....check out the camel in the background.
Braelyn and the Rhino. Ok, this is what I mean when I say "closer to the animals". All that separated us were some big wooden posts that weren't really that tall. Love it.

Brae and the Flamingos
We also went into the aquariams and looked at all the fish. They have a couple touch and feel tanks, and Braelyn was brave and stuck her hand right in! She felt a starfish, and some wierd spikey crab thing (that is the technical term ofcourse). She also got to feel the sting rays in their pool.
Thus closes our Zoo adventures for now! :>
