the perfect weekend...

We packed our weekend full of the perfect memories! Here's how it started...

We had breakfast with nana and grandpa at Donnie Mac's Trailer Park Cuisine. Any place that has Pop Tarts and YooHoo's on the menu is my kind of place!

Then, grandpa and I went on the paddle boats at the park and counted 13,763,454 ducks and geese! That's a lot!

The next day, I went to my first real baseball game with my cousin and some friends. We had peanuts and sno cones and sang "take me out to the ball game". The only thing that would have made it better is if it were the Red Sox!
And then we went to the zoo with my cousins! The gibbon monkeys put on a good show for us, but I really loved the snow leopard...and I got to introduce my pink ballerina princess snow leapord "Katie" to the one that inspired her. She was really excited!

Olivia had fun practicing her animal sounds and clapping for the monkeys. We pretty much loved our entire weekend!

naps are overrated

can i just say...naps are so overrated! my mom makes me take one every day, and i really don't have time for such things. so, i do everything i can to keep myself awake during nap time, like sing, look through books...and today, i did a quick wardrobe change! i know my mom gets kind of frustrated that i'm not into this whole nap thing, so i thought i would give her a good laugh when she came in to check on me. i put my snow suit on in the middle of JULY! it was actually quite comfy to sleep in...

how to save a catepillar's life...

imagine my excitement when i found a silly looking green thing crawling across our patio...ok, i'm not a big fan of bugs. but, it was interesting and my mom told me it was a caterpillar! we got out a big jar, filled it with dirt, bark, grass, and branches with leaves, and captured the caterpillar. we were so excited to watch this ugly bug make a cocoon, then turn into a beautiful butterfly! but then my mom decided to do some research...she found on the internet that caterpillars are very particular about the kind of leaves they eat, and would rather starve than eat the wrong kind. we couldn't figure out what the darn thing liked to eat, so in our compassionate hearts, decided to free the little guy/girl. it was fun to have a new friend for a day!
If you capture a caterpillar, learn how to take care of it at Butterfly School!
