Trip to the Ft. Worth Zoo

Saturday was the perfect day for a trip to the Zoo- only because rain threatened all day so there were no crowds. We had SO much fun...they had every animal you could think of, including gorillas, giraffes, White Bengal Tigers, Jaguars, Cheetahs, Rhinos, Sharks...everything.

Kate and Taylor had a blast and so did Mom and Dad. It was totally worth the drive and if you live in this area, it's a must.

Kate's favorite part was probably the elephants and feeding the birds and Taylor loved all of the fish and cows. They kept asking, "What's your favorite animal?" and thought for sure that the Zoo would have unicorns.

Getting BIGGER

Ever since her cousins came to town, Kate has been obsessed with "getting bigger"- it all began when she couldn't go down the big slide at the gym with Sofia and Lilian because she wasn't tall enough. In fact, this morning she woke and said, "I am bigger than this whole house". Here's what Kate had to say about this picture she drew yesterday.

Mom: Tell me about this picture, what is it?

Kate: Its my family...

Mom: Oh, which one is which?

Kate: The first one is Taylor. The next one is Mom. This one is Dad and his head is upside down. And the last one is Kate because I'm getting really big. See, I'm bigger than all of you.

Kate and Taylor decorated Easter eggs OUTSIDE today... it was a gorgeous 80-degree Saturday. Though what made this extra special is that their cousins, "The Fia's", aka Sofia and Lilian, are in town for the weekend. Four little girls in one house...princesses, unicorns, horses, fairies, and chocolate (need I say more?)...

Above picture is of Lilian!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday, Mom. I love you and hope you have a wonderful day.
We need an updated picture ... this is the best I could do.

The cutest little girl to ever wake from her nap...

I'm biased- I know...but, she's so fun to play with when she gets up because she is just so irresistibly happy. I just want to squish her! Don't mind the lips- she had a red popsicle before her nap.

Horsey, Horsey
Kate and Taylor had so much fun riding these ponies today. They also got to hold and play with bunnies, lizards, a chinchilla, a hedgehog, a parrot and a little brand-new puppy. The girls now want some pets around our house...

Old Man Winter...

... paid us a visit last night. For little kids, there is something so magical about waking up to snow in the morning, especially if you live in Texas. This was Kate and Taylor's first experience with snow, but Kate knew just what to a snowman, make snow angels, and throw snowballs. The snow only lasted a few hours...a perfect winter.

The Easter Bunny is Here ... & some B&W from the park

Some pictures from our neighborhood Easter Party on Saturday. The girls were really excited to meet the Easter bunny and she, (yes, the bunny is a "she"!) brought her friend, Peter Rabbit, along for the day. As you can see, this was an actual, live bunny and the kids went NUTS when he was unveiled . Everyone got a turn to pet him and then it was off to the Easter egg hunt! I just cannot explain how fun it is to have kids who understand and enjoy these things...
