Happy Birthday to ME!

Yesterday I celebrated 33 years! I celebrated with my Mom and we had a great day. First, Jason let me sleep in- which is always a nice gift- then I took AJ to the sitters while my mom and I went to Cherry Creek mall to do some shopping (it's what we do best:) and we had a nice lunch. Came home for a bit and then Jason, AJ and I went to Red Robin for dinner with Mom & Dave. Funny how things change when you have a baby! It's all about going to kid-friendly places :)

It was really a fun and relaxing day!

Happy Birthday Mommy!

The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

Yesterday was SUCH a wonderful day! AJ and I drove down to Colorado Springs to visit the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. We met up with a bunch of our friends; Holly and her kids, Heather and her kids and Ki and Dax. The zoo is about an hour away so thankfully AJ got a good nap. I had heard great things about this zoo, but I didn't realize just how awesome it would be! TOTALLY worth the drive.

AJ got to feed giraffe which was SO fun! He got to see so many animals up close- which at his age is nice. He saw a hippo, lions, zebra, a peacock, kangaroo, bears, snakes, frogs and SO much more! They have this awesome aviary that we went into and the birds were flying all around us. AJ couldn't stop giggling :) We even got to feed them!

Then we all sat on the grass and enjoyed a nice lunch. It was such a wonderful day with friends, great kids and an awesome zoo!

We will definitely be going back!

We FED this guy!

Happy Mothers Day!

Yesterday was my first Mothers Day and it was really a nice day! I got to sleep in which was a wonderful change. Then I woke up and Jason made me a nice breakfast. AJ took a GREAT morning nap, so we were able to watch a movie without interruption- this is VERY rare!

In the afternoon we all went up to the Denver Zoo and had a nice time walking around and checking out all the animals. We bought a yearly membership, so we'll be going to the zoo a lot. AJ really enjoys the animals, so long as they are big and close enough for him to see them.

After the zoo and AJ's nap we headed to my moms house for a REALLY nice dinner! I felt bad that she cleaned and cooked all day since it's her Mothers Day too, but she said she didn't mind.

All in all it was a GREAT first Mothers Day :)
