Busy, busy, busy...

My friend has been working on a HUGE garage sale that was today. She had a garage full of stuff from over 40 families that had to be sorted and priced and the like. Some people dropped off stuff that was not even worth 50 cents. We ended up throwing away a couple van loads of stuff, but still had PLENTY left over. I spent hours at her house, and therefore have had no time for blogging. I will soon though.

Another trip to the zoo...

We spent another morning at the zoo this week. It was way better than the last time because school has started, so there was practially no one there. We got to spend a ton of time at different exhibits that are usually full of people. It was a great time all around!!

The classic cheesy smile!!

There was a green frog there.. you can kinda see it.

The "swinging" bridge. This was the first time that he went on it, and then went about ten more times when he figured out that its not that scary!!!

This is a cayman... they are also found on Diego, and are bad... but they were cool to look at in real life.

The really big fish...

I love this one because it looks like he is in the tank!!
This trip was so much fun because Christina was was really interested in the animals around us!
We were feeding the goats... I had to keep a pretty close eye on her because she wanted to eat the goat food herself!
Hungry goat!

First... and Last time...

I shaved my brothers head a couple weeks ago... I will never do that again. I don't think he will have it shaved again, but not because I did a bad job. I did a pretty good job I think, but he has a weird divot(sp?) in his head that looks funny when he is bald. Lesson learned all around.

I also cut Emma's hair... I did a pretty good job if I do say so myself... She didn't even go to get it fixed, so she must have liked it.

Cell phone

I realized that it had been a while since I last wrote anything...
This is just a tribute to my blondeness. No joke.
I don't like having a cell phone, but it seems to never leave my side. Literally. It sits on my bedside table because it wakes me up better than my other alarm clock because every morning it really sounds like someone is calling me. Tribute Number 1.
Number 2. I don't like charging it at night but can't seem to remember to charge it during the day, so therefore it gets charged at night. Make sense? The reason I don't like charging it at night is because when it is plugged in, the light on the front screen stays on. Then that wakes me up in the middle of the night. I don't know why, but it does. I seriously realized last night that if I plug it in, and then turn it over, I don't have that problem.
I know. I told my dad this today, and he just laughed at me. At the time I thought that I was a total genius, but the more I thought about it the more I realized that no, not a genius, just a tad bit blonde.
Anyway. I have some pictures coming soon!!
