The weekend started early when I took off from work early to go to the Hogle Zoo with the TwilightMoms. Usually we have gatherings that are just us getting together without spouses or children. We thought it would be fun to have an activity that would include families. What a great time we had! We rented a pavilion and everyone brought their own lunches then we all went out into the zoo. We kind of split into little groups but we kept running into each other as we explored. It was so fun! Here are a few shots of the day-
It was very hot but luckily there was a lot of shade to sit in. I did get overheated but I stopped at a friend's house in Salt Lake after I left the zoo and the combination of the AC and the cold water she kept making me drink I was as good as new quickly.
Saturday was a full day. I did get to sleep in, which I am very thankful for. It's always a good Saturday when I get to sleep in. We had Howie's 1st birthday party Saturday afternoon. We gathered in Mark and Kathy's backyard for cake, creamies and presents. I can't believe he's 1 already! That just blows me away! He's such a cutie! Here are a few of the many pictures I took. (I always take too many!)
After the birthday party I stopped by the church and set up the Primary room for Sunday morning. Then we headed to Amanda's for Laura's bridal shower. I'm not usually a fan of bridal showers because I do not like shower games. Luckily there was only one shower game and it was a fun one. Most of the evening was spent eating, visiting, laughing and opening gifts.
Because I am a such a procrastinator I still had to prepare sharing time after I got home from the bridal shower. I popped in Pride and Prejudice (the A&E version) and started cutting out little people.
This is what my Saturday night consisted of- I really lead a wild life don't I?!?!
After surviving the chaos of Primary I came home and had a nap. It was a beautiful thing!!
After my nap I finished Pride and Prejudice and made slide shows. It's been a wild, crazy and fun weekend!!
