We spent the last few days in Richmond with my mom and as usual, it was a busy trip. We always pack a lot into a few days. We did spend some time just hanging out at her house, which was nice. We visited some cousins, took a trip to the Metro Richmond Zoo, went to church, and had family portraits done. The zoo was probably the highlight of the trip. The weather was overcast and cool and it was a perfect day to be there. The kids loved seeing all of the animals and had a hard time naming their favorite that day. My favorite was the orangutan. She was incredibly funny and sat by the edge of the moat and made faces at us. We also really loved the baby monkey.
We are home for about a week before we make a trek to the beach. We have a lot of stuff to do in the next week, 3 swimming lessons, a kindergarten doctor's appointment, celebrating Peyton's birthday early, a planning meeting for church, a VBS wrap up meeting, etc. Today I'm just trying to work on menus for this time at home and for the beach. I'm also trying to get our house cleaned up. It's a mess already and we've been home less than 24 hours! The one true thing in my life is this: NEVER a dull moment!
