We ate hearty
And had a party.
And Melissa and Drew!
We played games and ate dinner
(but my team was not the winner).
We ended the night with the Sound of Music.
I can't wait for the next time that we do this!
|Dave found the last piece under a pillow on the couch (still not convinced he didn't hide it there like my siblings and I used to do when we were little so we could put in the final piece).|
|Needless to say, he was very pleased to have the opportunity to put it in. We busted out this 1,000 piece puzzle in one day (about 7 hours total).|
|Notice something that is a bit of a theme in my relationship with Dave...?|
|Tessa's beautiful baby Noelle was blessed on Sunday.|
|I challenge you to find a cuter baby anywhere else on earth. Impossible.|
|Dave was such a sweetheart to come!|
|Playing with Many...|
|...and loving it!|
|The next time we get together, we owe them treats!|
|We had dinner with my parents and sisters on Saturday.|
|Unrelated item, but Christina made my sister and me maxi skirts which she gave us at the dinner. She's so talented!|
|Jenny and her husband (pictured below) made cheesecakes in honor of Dave!|
|And a little breakfast to go!|
|This train ride was absolutely...anti-climatic.|
|This little creature was my favorite part. He was smashing things with his flat little palm.|
|Look at his little tail curled around the branch!|
|We got free face painting! You should have seen some of the other faces that were wandering around the zoo. The face painters were pro!|
|Mama and baby!|
|I just love monkeys and apes and gorillas.|
|After telling Dave how zoos weren't my favorite thing growing up because of my indifference to animals, I started feeling very animal right-sy when I watched the big creatures in their little habitats.|
|This is Dave contemplating how he would take this tiger on if the cage got destroyed.|
|Only 10% of camels have 2 humps!|
|Dave remembered climbing in here as a little boy. So of course we had to recreate that moment.|
|What a cute little turtle!|
|I can't compete in the dental department with this dude.|
|Dave is scared because...|
|...I am lurking around the corner.|
