It's Monday?!?

This weekend FLEW by! I know it's because we were crazy busy. Saturday morning we left bright and early for the Birmingham zoo. I have to pause here to tell a little story.

On the way, we stopped at McDonald's in Livingston, AL for breakfast. They had Barbie princess toys which is one of Audrey's favorites right now. Of course they don't give toys with breakfast, but this day was all about her, so we coughed up the $2 for a toy. Well, she wanted a crown and they were out so she got a doll instead. We went on eating breakfast and you could tell she was really disappointed that they didn't have a crown. The ladies at that McDonald's turned that place upside down looking for a crown with no luck (all the while with a smile on their face). As we were about to leave, the lady working the drive-thru stops us. She remembered that her daughter had gotten one of the crowns the other day but didn't want it and it was still in her car in the packaging. She went outside and brought it in to Audrey--she made my child's day. They played with her and told her how that pretty crown matched her outfit and she loved every second of it. I was so impressed with them and how kind they were to my daughter- they went well above and beyond. I had to brag on them (and I've sent this in to McDonald's as well!).

Audrey had a blast at the zoo and that was an all day trip. We rode the carousel, rode a camel, fed the flamingos, got bitten by a Lorikeet, and managed to make our way around to every animal except for the Reptile House.

Audrey was most excited to see the giraffes and ended up with a little stuffed giraffe as her souvenir.

After the zoo we came home to find Daddy had found a snake in our yard (EEEKK!). It was not poisonous (I don't like them anyway) and he hit it with the lawn mower, so whatever kind of snake it WAS, it is NOW a dead one.

Sunday morning I woke up craving Pizza Hut for about the 5th or 6th day in a row. SO, Brent took me there after church--it is so awesome to fulfill a strong craving like that! I had Ultimate Cheese Lover's with pan crust on the brain and it was SO good.

The last few days it has been so easy to find Baby C's heartbeat on the Doppler. I can't describe just how much that puts my mind at ease each day to hear that precious sound. That was definitely worth the money spent. We purchased the Sonoline B 3MHz--so easy to use. I love having that peace of mind.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!


  1. Wow! That's amazing of the McDonald's workers!

    Dead snakes are my favorite kind of snakes!!!!

  2. I've never been so excited to brag about someone!! They were all so nice :)

    I have to agree with you on the snakes--that's the ONLY kind I like!


I love hearing from you :)
