First: I am attempting to make our blog more stalker-proof. We have never had an issue that we are aware of, but I realize I have not been taking as much precaution as I probably should be. For that reason, you will notice the change of names on the blog. I will be referring to our daughter as Princess (because she rules the house), and my husband and I...well we'll see what names come up! :)
Princess and I went to the zoo this week with a friend of mine and her two little ones. My husband and I had never taken her to the zoo before, because she still seems so little to us, and we didn't know if she would enjoy it. Well, Wednesday was a cool day, and kids were back in school, so it was a perfect day for a zoo trip. Princess loved it! So did the other two kids.
Here are a few pictures:

Bless the person who thought to put a wooden train in the zoo for kids to play on. They LOVED it!
They also loved these drums. :)
Baby "Belt": One of my nephews has the same issue as Princess - a tiny waist. Okay, more than one nephew has that issue, but I am thinking of one in particular. My sister-in-law bought him a Dapper Snapper, which acts as a belt while taking safety and potty training into consideration. I saw the price of these and was a little disappointed. But I liked the idea, so I tried making one. Success! Mine is not stretchy like the original, nor is it as attractive. But it is functional, adjustable, and affordable (about $2.00 to make 2).
AWANA starts this week! I am looking forward to working with the 5th-6th grade girls at our church. I have never worked with this age group before, but I am sure we will have good times. :) I am so thankful for various ladies of the church who have volunteered to work in the nursery to make this possible. So excited.
