Fun with the Animals

Laney turned 3 the other day and so we decide for her birthday we would make it special for her. We sent Ark Man to the grandparents and off we went to our adventure! First stop was breakfast which was yummy and then off to Lake Tobias. Laney loves animals so that's where we decided to take her.

The cost to enter is $4 for ages 3 and up. That price give you access to everything but the Safari Tour. The safari tour is when you ride around in the half bus (the top is cut off) and the bigger and safer animals come up to the bus and you can feed them.

Even if we didn't go on the safari tour it would have been a blast! Laney had so much fun looking at the animals BUT her favorite was the petting zoo. We saved this for last because we wanted to get her used to being around the other animals first to see how she did. She went in and started trying to pet every goat she could find. The animals that stole her heart was the miniature pony. She stood by him for 20 minutes and cried when we had to leave him.

She loved it and we will be returning again soon to see "her" pony! Also...you can pack your lunch because they have picnic tables and pavilions there for your convenience.

Here are some pictures we took during the day.

Jason ROCKS!!!

Ok so most of you know we just don't have tons of money to spend on photos but still want quality family portraits. So if you are like me and are in need of some family portraits but don't want to spend your child's college tuition then head over to Jason's and take a look!

You might want to know that he also makes the rights to YOUR photos available to you!!! Gotta love that!

Happy Birthday Laney Bug!

My sweet little baby girl is 3 today! I cannot believe it...I am in such shock. Where did 3 years go? And who is this little toddler? I can't even begin to tell you how blessed I am that God gave her to me to raise here on this Earth.

We have had good times and bad times, good stages and bad stages BUT it has been a blast spending the last 3 years with her. I love love love her passion, honesty, wildness, stubbornness, blond curls, little beady hazel eyes, her love for all things girly (shoes, dresses, dolls) but also for her love of water, dirt and trucks. She challenges me to be a better mother everyday without even realizing it.

So to my social butterfly who I adore so much...the child who caused me to have 23 hours of labor and 4 1/2 hours of pushing... I love you soooo much and I am so proud to be your mommy! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Ok let me just tell you that I never win ANYTHING! I am so not kidding either. Quick story...my dad every year gets us those scratch off lottery tickets and puts them in our stockings. I have never won...not even a dollar! My brother wins every time he gets one.

SO over at KNACK...a blog I follow...she was giving away soaps and I heart soaps! I love to set them out for our over-nighters and then let them take them home when they leave. Kind of like a souvenir from the Klinger's! HA! The other day I entered thinking these soaps are a must have and even considered just buying them instead of entering because I just never win anything. But I resisted and thought that I wouls enter anyway and if I didn't win I would jump on over there next week and purchase some lovely soap!

BUT I WON!!!!!!!! Jesus loves me and He so knew that I needed...oh I mean wanted those soaps!

Quick Post

Laney pooped in the potty today!!!! WooHoo... She has been peeing in the potty for 3 weeks now but today was the first time she told me she had to poop and actually went and pooped in the potty. I am so excited that we made chocolate chip cookies and ate them right before bed! Ok that's all...I just had to share!
