7 Blogs in 7 Days....

I'm behind with some fun stories and pictures of family fun the last couple weeks and feel I need to document them, because selfishly, this blog is the story of Addy & Lilly and I'd hate to miss some pivotal moments (not that I think this is a pivotal moment, but go with me). So, here is the kick-off to 7 blogs in 7 days, we'll see if I can keep up (a couple comments might make for some good motivation, hint, hint....).

For the girls birthday, we decided we'd hit the Fort Wayne Zoo since we were up north, hanging out at the lake. So, their entourage and I packed them up and headed out for a fun day. I've mentioned before that Addy is fearless, but I wasn't quite prepared as we walked by the pony rides, for her to look at me and say "Addy do it, peas?" Speaking in near sentences now, it is hard not to give them what they ask for and I knew if I didn't let her, I might have some birthday guilt. So, off we went and this......
quickly turned into this.....

Lilly, of course, wanted NOTHING to do with the pony and was perfectly content hanging with the grandmas waving to the horses as they went by.

So, no, we are not saving for a pony for Christmas.

We had the exact same experience last night with our Addie! I need to catch up on blogging, too. Maybe you'll expire me. Looking forward to the next 7 days!

That would be "inspire" not "expire". Ha! Maybe I shouldn't do it afterall. :)

Looking forward to the next 7 days Aimee! At least you can cross off the expensive habit of horseback riding...at least for now anyways!

Addy & Lilly are really funny about animals - they seem to really like them from a distance;) But up close it's not so much fun! I am excited about the seven days thing! I love seeing new pictures and videos- every time you post a new video I always swear it is my favorite until the next!
