Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Who's the Fairest of them All?

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?

"Thou, O Princess, art the fairest of all."

Sorry for the hiatus...getting back into the swing of things after being out of town.

Stay tuned for pics from our trip to NY.

King for a Day

Sprout turned 7 yesterday and had his party at jump zone, an inflatable play place.
It was a great party- one of the best we have ever had!

His party seemed to last all day... When we got home from his party he played with his cousins Kenny and Chase, who were visiting from Texas, all afternoon. They played in the pool, played with Bakugans, built legos... In the evening, we all played the Wii before heading outside for a bon fire complete with roasted marshmallows!

Happy Birthday Buddy; I hope you had a fun day!

Happy Father's Day Daddy

Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad.

Monkey Business

So, we were at the chimpanze exhibit at the zoo and the kids are looking at this one chimp laying right next to the window. Her butt looked pretty gross; the kids kept saying "ieuwwwww, look at her butt, what is wrong with it?" The adults were speculating about whether or not she was giving birth. Well, we got our answer when a male chimpanze mounted her for the ride of his life right there in front of the window. It was a scene right out of national geographic-uncensored. Turns out it is mating season and the female was in heat.

"When a female chimpanzee comes into heat - or into estrus, as a scientist would say - the sex skin of her genital area becomes swollen...." Click here for image. Well, I am not a scientist, but-
You Think??

The exhibit cleared so fast as the parents ushered their children out from in front of the window that you would have thought that a bomb went off. Nature at its finest is not always pretty!

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

I took the munchkins to the zoo recently and met a good friend there that I have not seen in years. The last time I think I saw her was when I was pregnant with Sprite and she just turned 3!! And now she has an adorable little boy that is 2 and a half!!

Needlessto say, we had a lot of catchhing up to do but we did manage to see a few animals...

I have a funny story to share about our zoo trip that I'll share next...

What's Wrong With This Picture

I don't know about you but we don't typically place our trampoline vertically- makes it kind of hard to bounce that way. :)

We just had a severe storm come through. It literally lasted 10 minutes and manged to pick up our trampoline from from it's legs and carry it across the yard to the field behind the playset. It also managed to bend our flagpole right in half! Now we have blue skies and sunshine!
Gotta love NC Summers!

The Princess and the Pink Party

Sprite (a.k.a Princess or Kitty) turned 3 yesterday! Depending on the day and/or her mood she is either Sprite, a Princess or a Kitty. Yesterday she was a Princess.

For months, all she has talked about was having a pink party for her birthday. Not knowing exactly what she had in mind, I did my best to put together a little pink party for her. I bought pink wrapping paper, pink plates and cups, pink balloons, made a pink cake... in hopes that was the pink party she was hoping for. I think I did ok!

Here are a few pictures from the Princess and her Pink Party!
