hmmmm, which detour should we take, shouldn't we go by what Maggie is telling us.....although the girls have been to the zoo on may occasions, EVERYTHING LOOKS THE SAME IN NORTH CAROLINA! lol, YOU DON'T HAVE A CLUE WHERE YOU ARE GOING WITHOUT MAGGIE!
Madison posed for this picture...miss glamore with her new shades, the zoo isn't new to the girls, they have a yearly pass so they go often, Natalie just didn't tell me that she usually picks ONE continent to visit....we did Africa and part of North America, then I was done!
We took the girls to the NC Zoo and what a zoo it is. It is sectioned off into several continents, the zoo is incredible....we first went to Africa, the lush greenery and hillsides were so beautiful, but to get from one animal to another you got your days exercise in! I was exhausted by the end of the day...it didn't bother Brook, she was in a stroller, and Madison is a runner....what can I say!
as you can see she had to get the last lick out of the bowl, ya I know BTDT you have all had the experience.....it never ceases to amaze me that even when the bowl is licked clean, it is never enough! . . . . yes there was a bath afterwards, hands arms and hair were covered in yummy sticky, gooey, batter. You go girl!
there is always something special about makeing a cake. Someone dibs the bowl, someone dibs the beaters, and someone dibs the spatchula. Guess who ended up with it all! After the spatchula got what it could.......
Bob and I "had the pleasure" of watching the girls while Natalie and her hubby Brad went to Jamaica for a week! We adore the girls and it was fun. I know now why I gave birth at 18, 21 and 24! I had the energy then! Being a grandmother is (I am being honest here) the best joy ever and you love spoiling the grandkids and giving them everything they want....but....if they have everything they want...what is there left to give except......your kisses, hugs, and an occasional loving grandparenting discipline hahahaha. We had a great time, can't wait until next year!
