This week went by quickly! We had a nice week, though. One day we went out to the local zoo. We were supposed to go with friends, but their baby was sick so we were on our own. I can't say I was thrilled with this idea as we really really love our friends. BUT! Once we were there - driving out there, even - I realized how long it had been since I'd done something like this just for fun with only my kids. It reminded me how much fun they are to be around and how nice it was for them to have my undivided attention. I definitely plan on more solo outings soon.
Malachi especially enjoyed the coyote exhibit.
Canaan was a big boy and walked on his own the whole hour and a half we were there. Ran, more like - at one point, he ran straight through a cactus patch. Oops! Thankfully, he wasn't hurt.
Caris loves animals of all sorts. It seems like every little girl dreams of becoming a veterinary at some point, and Caris is no exception.
Graham made sure he was ready with his camera AND extra batteries.
Today I finished a set of new napkins for us out of my favorite fabric EVER!
Poor Canaan was up most of last night coughing and feverish and nursing literally every hour. He's just a little tired today.
Can you tell? Here's to a better night's sleep tonight!
