DC Zoo

Last week we went to the National Zoo with a few of the girls. The first half of it wasn't great, but after we moved over to the other side, it got LOTS better! The best part about it... It was free!

I love Bailie's face

Trivia: How many lions can you spot?

July 28th

Guess who is coming out to visit us!?!?

I'll give you a hint....


Yup. You guessed it!! For 6 glorious days, my amazing parentals and Taylynn are coming!

 Don't worry Dad. I'm mapping out our trip already. :)

He has NEVER been to Washington DC before so it should be a party!

Oh and I can't believe I forgot to blog about this.

Talyn is an official college grad!! You are so freaking a-ma-za-zing Tal! I'm so sad I missed it, but I was thinking of you... 

I am so proud of you. You have done SO much with your life and you are only 20! 
You are an inspiration.
Thank you for your great example.
I am so glad you are my sister.

These next couple of months better fly by... Cause I can't wait to see my incredible family!

Being a mom can be hard. Lately it has been. 
But the last few days have been great.

They truly are my world and teach me so much!

So to my Bailie and Brek, 
Thank you for being patient with me
You guys are by far the cutest and greatest kids :) 
Daddy and I can't imagine what our lives would be like without you two!!
Your Mommy

What we have been up to

Quite a bit actually!
I don't know if you've heard, but Osama is gone!!  
So, on Tuesday night the girls and I went down to the White House to check out what was going on down there.
Apparently Lori and I look like lesbians...
The guy that took this picture treated us like we were. Weird. Very weird.

The girls

This guy was in front of the White House... He was chanting and meditating.

A Spanish news station was there too

Every Saturday night is our going out night. We went to Olive Garden a few weeks ago

Lori's birthday was last Sunday so on Monday the girls took her out to lunch at a Brazilian restaurant in Chinatown... 
Talyn told me about it. 
It was amazing!!

This was my meal

The birthday girl!
