Good Golly

I'm beat.

When our guests arrived on Friday, I was on my hands and knees scrubbing the kitchen floor. I just needed another 30 minutes and I would have made my deadline. This sweetie didn't care how clean the floor was though. She was just happy to watch while I cooked. She's working on her first teeth and showed me she can roll over by herself now.

The kids thought the house looked great. More about that later though.

DH took the boys fishing Saturday while the girls and I went thrifting and played with the baby.

On Sunday we took the kids to the zoo. Little Miss is ready to see lions, tigers, and bears.For the record, you don't take babies to the zoo. You take a stroller to push a sleeping baby while you go to the zoo. They could care less. DH and I both agreed that the kids don't know how to visit a zoo. When did it become a foot race? Have mercy on us old folks and slow down. It wasn't one of the more enjoyable visits I've ever had.

All in all, we had a wonderful visit and look forward to them coming again. We never realize how big this house is with just two of us until company goes home. We're also very quiet people. They on the other hand, aren't.

Don't grow too much until we see you again.

I remember those zoo trips with kids. I even went as a chaperone for a first grade field trip. Yeah, I'll never do that again!

Baby is gorgeous! Glad your weekend was fun.

Look at all her curls! Is that daddy right above her? I can't wait to see the house pics, darlin'. I remember going to the zoo as a kid and it was indeed a foot race. We were always so excited to see the next exhibit and were in a hurry to get there! Getting old just is no fun.
