Taking our Monkeys to the Houston Zoo

I interrupt my insane blog catch up to bring you our PoeFam memories from yesterday...our trip to the Houston Zoo. It was H.O.T...words can't really describe! But, the animals were out and about and we had a wonderful time!

In the midst of our fun, these two apes got a little lost at one point in our trip. They thought we were behind them...when, in fact, we were ahead...and went back to find us. Thankfully, they went to the nearest gift shop and had the zoo worker call me. They got a little talking to about paying attention...but a lot of praise for doing the right thing. I don't think any of us were that nervous but it was still a relief to have them back in our sight! My monkeys might need a leash!

{Jesus is Alive & Quinn is NINE!}

Once in a lifetime...Quinn got to celebrate his birthday and Jesus' resurrection on the same day! When we learned, months before, that it was going to happen this way for his 9th birthday, he was ecstatic. Needless to say, it was a busy day. 

 The birthday boy chose Easter/birthday lunch...IHop! We digress...he was super happy...

 After lunch and naps, they were ready for their egg hunt...Mammer  & Slickpaw's eggs are the best because they're full of money...

 It really was a great day...full of celebrating our risen Lord and our big 9 year old! 

On Monday, I picked Q up early from school for his 9 year old well check. He measured in at 4 feet 6 inches (50-75%) and 57 pounds (10-25%). And, we headed straight to have a little Macroon date to fatten him up a bit! ;) 

Happy 9th to my sweet, sweet love! You are such a special guy!
