I didn't even know what to title this post since I've been back home for over a week now but late and update rhyme and for some reason made me giggle so that's that.
Since I got zoo passes for my birthday I was determined to go to the B'ham zoo because they have a reciprocal agreement and I get to go for free- yay! I hadn't been to this zoo since Chloe was a baby and it was nice to be back. Overall I like the Nashville Zoo better but it was still a nice day outdoors and the B'ham zoo has a few things that Nashville doesn't.
Like a train!
On our way in, someone was kind enough to give Chloe and Halle tokens so they could ride. And our engineer was very hammy and really seemed to enjoy the attention and having his picture taken. Which I think is better than a grouchy conductor.They also have flamingos...I love them. And I haven't seen any in a really long time.We also went out to eat on this trip...a lot. I think it's my parents favorite thing to do. At one point they decided they wanted to go to Red Lobster and I very eloquently talked them out of it. I think my exact words were "you people are crazy"! I was really just teasing them but we did already have food ready in a crockpot. I'm just not used to eating out that much, except for Chick-Fil-A. Anyway, it was really nice.
We ended the week with Travis getting into town and he and I took an amazing walk Friday morning. The park we used to go to has an amazing walking trail. It goes through the woods and up and down hills. There was an overlook at one point and we realized we were up higher than the roof of a house. And we had a date at California Pizza Kitchen. I highly recommend it. I've only been twice but I've loved the pizza both times. Last time was a vegetarian pizza with Japanese Eggplant on honey wheat crust- delish! It would have been better with sausage. And this time it was Chipotle Chicken on the same crust- outstanding! Spicy but wonderful. And if you can drink sugary drinks, the peach tea is amazing. Then we headed over to Big Mountain Coffee that I've told you about before. It was a little disappointing. They've changed some things and it wasn't really the same. The coffee was still really good but there was no live music and they've added a TV that was playing Nickelodeon. Bummer. But it was a nice night out for us.
Then we spent Easter there too. Minus Amanda- she had to work. I had actually forgotten that it was Easter so I didn't have any dress clothes to wear. So, of course I had to go shopping. I bought a dress for the first time in four years! It's not that I don't like dresses and I have some skirts but it was nice to be able to buy an actual dress. And earrings (I don't even remember the last time I wore earrings and apparently my ears didn't either because they gave me some trouble) and pumps! Wow! I felt like a real girl. Mom was sweet enough to do Easter baskets, dresses, shoes and hairbows for the girls. A picture, you say? You'd like to see a picture? Well, I'd love to show you one but Blogger is giving me trouble again and I can't really move them around. So maybe with my next post I'll show you a picture. I'm really tempted to try out another blogging site...
Now I'm off to have family night. I think we're going to enjoy this wonderful weather at the park. Fun...
