This and That from the Last Couple of Weeks

The Monday after Easter I was off of work, so I took the girls for a walk to the park.  Kyri insisted on bringing her new umbrella...just in case.  : )

Both girls have been loving their playhouse outside.  They missed it all winter!

Last Sunday, it was supposed to rain, but we thought we'd take a chance at the zoo anyway.  We're so glad we did, because the rain held off all day and there were barely any people there.  Since it was overcast, the animals were super active, and we had a great time watching them.  

Tessa was fascinated by this real leopard!  She yelled "Beppy" to him over and over again.  Beppy is how she says leppy, which is the name we gave to her leopard blankie in her hand.
Kyri was in heaven in the reptile house.  She gets that from her dad.

And both girls LOVED the dolphin show. 
 Even Tessa was clapping along and putting her hands up when the announcer told the crowd to do so.

And here are Kyri's spring preschool pictures.  I can't believe how grown up she looks!  These pics look more like senior pictures than preschool!  The company brought outfit changes and everything.  It all went on during school, so I didn't know what to expect.  When I got the proofs, I was pleased with the results!  Mostly, I was happy to see her natural smile, rather than the bashful smile she was doing with all the characters in Disney!  The photographers must have had her laughing somehow!


  1. School pictures!?! She can't possibly be old enough for school pictures! :)

    Adorable Beppy pic!

  2. WOAH!!! How'd they even get kid that age to pose in such intriquit poses. Impressive!! Very cute.
