Family Weekend

We hosted Scott's sister and her family last weekend. They were here to meet Trace and of course Ellie and Michael had lots of fun playing together.

Our first stop on Saturday was to the zoo. My little groupon deal I bought this spring has paid for itself probably 10 times over. It is so nice to have a membership you can bring guests on; everyone got in for free! We did a lap around the zoo and stayed for about 90 minutes before the humidity got to the best of us.



This picture makes Michael look so big! This was our first trip to the zoo where Michael walked the whole time, thanks in part to Scott who could hold his hand while I wore Trace. It was busy and I'm glad we didn't have a stroller!









We got to feed this guy- another first for me. He is so beautiful up close!





The big male lion was out snoozing on the big rock right in front of the window. So great!



We also had plenty of time just chilling at home and Jen made us some of her blackberry margaritas. She needed some taste testers for a new recipe and we were definitely willing guinea pigs!



Saturday night we headed to Big Creek state park for a picnic but it was way too hot and plus there were a ton of people around. It was kind of a bust- I should have stuck to my familiar Jester Park! Live and learn, I guess. It was Michael's first time at this little beach and he was pretty excited about it.




All in all, it was a great weekend with family. I am living up my final days before school starts in just a few weeks!
