Trying to catch up

Happy Easter everyone!

Oh, wait.  That was yesterday, wasn't it?

That's the story of my life lately.....always trying to catch up.

The truth is, I've been too busy enjoying my family and all of the beautiful weather we've been having to keep my blog updated.

We're usually outside every afternoon after school and our weekends have been busy, busy.

For now, let's jump backwards a couple of weekends and take a look at my daughter's trip to TN to celebrate a friend's birthday.

After an overnight at their lake house on Douglas Lake in Dandridge, TN, the plan was to head to the Knoxville Zoo for the morning. 

Here we go......

The rhinos had been introduced to a new member of the community - the male was trying to meet the new female & those other girls were determined to keep him away. A fun little show took place.

The girls got to ride a camel.  They really enjoyed that.

After having a picnic lunch at the zoo and checking out all of the animals (and gift shops) we piled back in the car and headed on the three hour drive to Nashville, TN.

The birthday girl also wanted to celebrate with her friends at The Rainforest Cafe.  We had never been to one before and it was quite a treat.

Hope you had a great birthday, Lorin!!

Everybody had such a great time.  It really was a fun weekend.

Sounds like a fabulous weekend. We need to get to the zoo soon before the temps. get way too hot! Isn't the Rainforest Cafe a neat place?!?! The first time we went (with friends) Lexi was too young and really scared but after that she has loved it.

Hope you have a great day.♥
