Cincy Zoo Visit

Another way late post :)

While we were in the US, we got to go to the Zoo. It was super hot, super sticky, and loads of fun. This one if going to be light on commentary and heavy on pictures. Enjoy!


















Adventures. Adventures.

Picnic Party

In September we went to a massive picnic party in southern Ohio with my family. There were bouncy houses and yummy foods and all types of fun stuff.

This is my mom. I'm not sure exactly what she did to help get this party together but I'm sure it was a lot.


This is my sister. She did nothing to get the party set-up but she made it a lot of more fun while we were there.


My sister and my mom looking all adorable.



Of course, PJ liked the bouncy castles the best. Because, really, who wouldn't?!





 My husband took babywearing and cornhole to another awesome level by combining them together.




Matilda loved being worn so much that she actually ate in the Ergo. Cute, right?



The food spread was super yummy: fried chicken!!


Jelly Bean couldn't get enough of the chicken.



 Along with bouncy castles, cornhole, and yummy food, there were also hayrides!



As well as other rides, like this Ohio State themed one.




So much fun, so much fun and then add FACE PAINTING! PJ became SpiderMan! Check out them muscles.



On top of all that, balloons! Jelly Bean spent a lot of day with her grandpe, cruising around and eating chicken.




But, wait, there's more! A rocket launch! PJ and Grandpe decorated a rocket. Then Granny and PJ started to prepare it for the actual launch. It was complicated and took a looooooong time.



So while standing in line, everyone watched the other rockets taking off.  


At some point it was just too loud and PJ's enthusiasm started to wane.

 Then finally it was PJ's turn and his rocket SHOT up into the air! It was so exciting. The Mr. and PJ got to chase the rockets down.


Which may have been just as exciting as watching it shoot up in the first place.


Here is my little man with his exploded rocket, his SpiderMan face, and his dirty, dirty, dirty pants after one packed day.

Oh, and I was there too:

IRL: It Does Happen

When I was pregnant with PJ I got involved in an online group. Three years later, while visiting family in Ohio, three of us got together for a playdate. It was so wonderful to meet these women in person that I've shared some ups and downs with online.

And of course meet those adorable, adorable, adorable little ones!





The three mommies!

First American Parade

While we were in the US visiting family and friends, PJ and Jelly Bean got to see their first American parade. It was everything one could hope for:

It started out with four gentlemen carrying the American flag with everyone standing to honor it as it passed.


Followed closely by a series of firetrucks and emergency vehicles.


So many firetrucks! So many family members!

A few more groups went past - mostly politicians - and then these fabulous motorcycles roared by.


Which was only topped by these vehicles goofying by.

And finally horses! Lots of horses!

With cowboys!

Cowboys that we know!

Even better: a cowgirl we know ON A HORSE!


All in all, it was a stupendous afternoon with lovely family members and yummy donuts.
