So What Wednesday

Linking up with Shannon over at L.A.I.D. for So What Wednesday!

This week I'm saying SO WHAT IF:

  • I'm totally obsessed with having picnics with H, so much so that they didn't mow our grass the other day!
  • I could really use a night out with my man sans the wild child
  • When we do go out to dinner as a family it has to be before 5:30 b/c of said wild child
  • I'm so grateful for all the friends I've made through blogging and twitter, y'all sure do know how to make a girl feel loved :)
  • I'm counting down the days until I am back in VA specifically the Northern Neck for a little river time!
  • My legs are horribly pale...who knew I would get so pale when we moved from sunny FL...big downside to moving in my opinion!

Spring Is In The Air

Well spring is officially here! We have been having so much fun getting outside and enjoying the weather :) I cannot believe Easter is in 2 weeks, where is the time going??? M has been crazy busy at work so I have been trying extra hard to cook dinner at least 2 - 3 nights a week to help out! I have also created a chore schedule (thank you AP) that has helped me keep a tidy (well as tidy as 1 can be w/a wild child) home.

FlashBack Friday: Beach Trips of 2011

With all of this wonderful weather we have been having I decided to flashback to the beach trips we took in 2011. We are already missing being less than an hour from the beach :( I will have to get used to living in a land locked state!

The 1 Day Hudson Didn't Like Dinosaurs...

M and I were so excited to take Hudson to the Nashville Zoo this weekend for their DinoTrek exhibit! Hudson loves dinosaurs, we watch Dinosaur Train everyday and even have some of the toys! I mean what boy wouldn't love the combination of dinosaurs and trains. So back in December we bought a membership to the zoo in anticipation of DinoTrek, with a membership it was only $3 extra for each of us to go to DinoTrek.

When Saturday rolled around we, M and I, got up early, made breakfast, packed snacks for H and headed to the zoo. We got there at about 9:45 and were ready to go! We made a beeline for DinoTrek, so excited to see H's reaction!

Well, H's reaction was anything but great, poor guy was so scared he was shaking like a leaf! Big parent fail! I really didn't realize that the dinosaurs would be moving and roaring, guess I was thinking it would be more educational, clearly I was wrong. I ended up carrying him through the whole thing.

Once we exited the exhibit H was fine, we walked around the rest of the zoo and then headed home for naps.  All in all we had a good day, just a word to the wise for any of you Nashville moms, this exhibit would be better for 5 and older, and you should get there early...when we left at 11:45 the line was wrapped around through the parking lot!
