monday funday

Kyle had the day off today and Embry and Ellie had school, so that meant we had Hayes all to ourselves this morning! We hit the zoo first thing and had a great time. We saw the polar bear FINALLY. I think it is the first time he's been viewable all these trips we've made to the zoo. Amazing creature. And we heard a lion roar. Have you ever heard a lion roar? In person? Holy freak, it's loud! And the sea lions were napping in the sun... I want one so bad. They are my favorite.

For dinner tonight, we had a lovely guest stop by to join us, Mr. Paddle. He may become a regular dinner guest seeing that my children were on their best behavior in his presence.

After dinner, Kyle asked Hayes to clear the plates and Hayes asked, "How do I do that? Wipe them off with a napkin?"

I just love the one-on-one time with Hayes. So glad Daddy was able to join us today.

9 tellin' me what I want to hear!:

What a great day! The polar bear is my favorite. Sadly, catching him in an active mood is a 'once in a blue moon' event.

I love it.. 'Mr. Paddle'... Dad and I laughed after you told us the story and could just imagine their wide eyes watching Daddy come to the table with it...

I love the zoo too! We need to go take a trip to see Auntie before she is tied down in nursing school...

Sounds like a very nice day. Hayes looks so big in that one picture. And it's amazing how one dinner guest can bring peace to the table.

One on One time is great. I had some with Ben at dinner last night while Brinley was inside crying about what to wear to dinner...the purple dress ;)
The Tulsa zoo sounds better than the OKC zoo, I know ya'll have our elephants.
