I thought I would post some pictures of our Valentine weekend in "slide show style" since there were so many pictures from our great weekend. I apologize for the "messiness," but it was my first time using Smilebox.
It started with Alise's Valentine party at school on Friday afternoon. Wayne got to play my part in the party while I traveled with my family out of town for my Grandmother's burial. I don't think he cared for his role too much because he said he was the only dad there and he was dressed in a suit, too (leaving straight from the funeral). Oh, well! I was shocked to see Alise's aid, Ms. Jane, at my Grandmother's funeral! She is dating one of my cousins. Small world. When I got back home later that evening, we took Alise to the mall to eat at Chic-fil-a and ride the carousel.
This morning we headed to our local zoo and had a blast!! Even though the zoo was still in its "winter season" and it was rather cool, the highlights of our day were getting to feed Gerry the Giraffe, riding Sadie the Horsie, and meeting Tank the Rhino (the newest attraction). Alise took in everything and seems to be just at the right age to really enjoy the zoo. I loved getting to experience today with her and through her eyes! It was awesome! A great Family Day!
The zoo's concession stand was closed, so we weren't able to have the picnic like we had planned. We ended up going to a Mexican Restaurant for a late lunch and from there to Academy Sports to look around. Wayne wanted to buy Alise a swing set, but I thought it would be a better to wait a few more months.
Alise's poor face is still bruised, but I am SO thankful that we are not in the ER tonight like we were last week at this time!
