Catching Up

Today Kaitlynn, MawMaw and I went to the Zoo. We had a few passes to use on our membership that expires today (and they aren't transferable to the renewed membership). We rode the train as soon as we got there. On the ride, we saw an old friend of my mom's (Nonie, Ron and their 4 grand daughters), so we got off to visit with them. We went in to see the penguins together. The girls are all close to Kaitlynn's age. She was shy or maybe intimidated at first. But by the end of talking with them, the girls were hugging and standing close to each other. Nonie and Ron's youngest son was my first boyfriend! Ha ha!
Kaitlynn rode the carousel with MawMaw.
Kaitlynn wanted to see the monkeys.
After lunch, we went into Build-A-Bear and MawMaw bought Kaitlynn this monkey. Kaitlynn named her George. Yes, the monkey is a girl and her name is George.
We had to take George to see the monkeys.
Then Kaitlynn decided that George needed socks. So we went back to Build-A-Bear to get socks, panties and sunglasses. George is one stylish monkey!
We went into the Bird House per Kaitlynn's request.
We saw the lion and the lioness (who was laying in the tree).
Kaitlynn was in a "mood" all day - very whiny and most things seemed to be a battle. I think I am getting a sinus infection and felt nauseous all day. It wasn't the best day to deal with a whiny child.

Wine and Cheese

Saturday, Dave and Kaitlynn went to the Zoo. Dave said they had a great time and Kaitlynn came home asleep.

That evening we went to Eileen and Stephen's for a wine and cheese night. Emily, Christopher, Ella, Tara, Jonathon, and Bailey also came. Every couple brought a wine (or grape juice). It was great sampling different wines, wines that we normally wouldn't buy. Eileen had an excellent spread of food. She is such a great hostess.

This is the only picture I got of the 4 kids together -not a very good one.
Merci was as cute as ever and I was so excited to hold her.
Kaitlynn, Bailey and Gabe were laughing so hard and having such a good time, I had to take a video.
