Here's what's been going on here the past couple of weeks.

1920's zoo

We ventured to the Zoo last Saturday, and I think we were the only ones without a stroller & a couple kiddos. We enjoyed seeing the few animals, we were there in the early afternoon and most were asleep, but our favorite part was just walking around & learning about the history of the Zoo. It was built in the 1920's and was the first zoo to start the natural enclosures rather than cages for the animals. We also were in love with the architecture and the old houses that lined the back East wall. It was the perfect day to go and besides having sore feet and some freckles on our nose, we were satisfied with our Saturday spent back in time.

eastern standard time

I don't know if it's just me, but I swear time goes faster here out here. Maybe it's because we're on Eastern time with all the New Yorkers, but I blink and it's already 4 pm. With busy mornings & having Derek out the door by six, it gives me a chance to to hop online and check on things in the wee hours of our old Idaho, Arizona & California time zones. Let me tell ya, lots of fun happens when we are asleep out here! Thankfully, because of social media, we are able to now, "catch up" instead of being in the moment. Oh, and don't worry. My trusty watch has been helping me out on time recently, even though she was 3 hours behind for a good few weeks. 

Happy Friday! 
With Derek's {curse word/weekend ruiner/pain in the bum} online conference call class through July, we are tied to the computer & phone until early afternoon. Seriously, who planned that?!

for our dads

Happy Father's Day from your little blondies turned brunette. 
We love you guys more than 1,000 glasses of strawberry milk & 1,000 Leilani's fish tacos. We know you could say the same for us.
Now, go take a nap.

dashboard toes

 New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma & Kansas 
 Missouri,  Indiana, Illinois & Michigan

Phew. Yes. We drove through all those states. In a moving truck. Towing our car. Thankfully, No Doubt on Pandora, Board II studying, and a few silly games along the way made the trip fly by. Plus, 3 full days with my husband? Count me in, no matter the circumstances.

These red rock desert feet made the 2,000 mile journey to the green windy midwest. 
We're all settled in & enjoying ourselves. 
Check back this week to see where our feet took breaks on the drive.
