Lions and elephants and hippos, oh my


Cadens first trip to the zoo was only about an hour and 45 minutes long.  I though he was going to end up sleeping through the whole trip, after his driving us there and all. 

But he woke up and his first fun filled zoo trip ensued. 

I am not site how much he saw but he really loved it. It was way too hot though. 84. Yuck. I know it's just going to get hotter.

Little Cody really could see everything this time and he absolutely loved it. I can't wait to go back.

Older and old

On the second morning after my 36th birthday I woke up with a strange new bedfellow. And it brought a friend.  I looked in the mirror and sprouting out the top of my head was not 1 but 2, 2! Gray hairs!!!

I pulled 1 out just to make sure. So currently I have 1 grey hair. 1 of many more to come I am sure.

No longer living La Vida Loca

It's my birthday. I am 36 years old today. Here are some of my favorite things as of right now at 36 and some other tid bits about me. (I think my interests have changed a lot over the last 8 years or so.) Some may recall my 28th birthday party where we had a bounce house, a pinata, and bbq for grown ups. 

I am still young at heart. I would still bounce in a bounce house (and did 3 weeks ago.) 
I love sweets. Preferably cake with butter creme frosting. (cookies & candy are good, too.) 

My favorite food is still popcorn. As in typically I would rather have popcorn more than dinner. Some like pizza, some like Mexican food, mine is popcorn. And recently I got my amazing popcorn popper and shortly there after found the perfect way to make it take just how I like. Mmmm. 
\This leads to crazy kernels all over the place, though.

My favorite thing to do is sleep hang out with my 2 sons. They are so fun. Cody makes me laugh every day. And worry and laugh again.  Caden has the biggest grin I have ever seen. His eyes are so full of love and searching for new adventures and learning all the time. 

My favorite man is my ah-maze-za-ing husband Cody. He is the best. He is silly and funny and loving and kind. He has the patience of  a saint. 

I love my family. I have 2 pretty awesome step-daughters, too!

My current favorite animal is Mouse. That cat rocks! He waits until Caden is asleep and comes in and sleeps on the other side of me. He is so funny. He is a cuddly cat and even tolerates the daycare kids. 
My favorite date is going to the temple with my husband. (This is a recent favorite. Like a really new favorite,  but it is the best.)  I also still love going to the movies, but don't take me to dinner before the movie. I don't want to fill up before I get my popcorn!

I would go on but you are probably bored with all this self love and happiness I am sharing here and I think I hear a baby calling me. 

Thanks for reading. (I like comments, too!)  
Here is a happy picture to leave you smiling today...
Cody, Edward Cullen, Mariana, and the back of Cadens head!
