Pretty much everyday I catch Miriam doing things that Jaxon used to do when he was her age




She pretty much looks like a boy when she doesn't have a bow and girl clothes on!!

Family Experiment

Since Miriam was born we haven't done any overnight family activities so we decided to make a weekend trip to the Waco zoo. I had the kids packed and ready to go when Mark came home at 1 on Friday. It was perfect. They slept the whole way there!
When we got to the hotel we played around a bit and then went for our first swim of the year in the indoor pool. Jaxon rediscovered his love for swimming and Mark for the hot tub.

We were worried about how the kids would do staying in a hotel, but they did relatively well. After talking to herself for an hour and a half Miriam fell asleep on her own in the pack and play. Jaxon was a little bit more difficult to put down, but once he was settled we actually got a full nights sleep, (minus one little feeding at 3). We woke up, ate breakfast, had a morning swim, and headed to the zoo. We got there when it opened and it was the best because:


There was pretty much no one there!

I was so proud of this little lady! She stayed in her stroller the whole time!!!
They had an awesome play area for kids. In the summer it has water splash too.
Look at those two handsome devils! I am one lucky lady!

Seriously huge!
They had fun little things for kids in most of the exhibits. This was the slide through the otters habitat. The otters were swimming around showing off while they went down the slide.
The Owls were ADORABLE!
Miriam LOVED the elephants!!

Lots of fun spots for the kids to play
The gong
I totally recommend this zoo! It was perfect for our kids. It took us about an hour and a half to walk through all of the exhibits and I was so proud of our kids! They didn't lose it until we made it back to the parking lot and tried to take a picture. They had a blast though, and Mark and I loved it too.
