My friend from Hawaii came to town this weekend and we had such a good time. We sat around and caught up on all things Brandon, Hawaii and Florida. We didn't do much, which was nice. I think on Friday we were out and about for a total of something like 2 hours or something and came back home and watched Grey's Anatomy, which I DVR'd from the night before.
On Saturday we went to the Santa Fe Teaching Zoo. Wow! It was so much nicer than I thought. Emilia LOVED it, I mean she really, really LOVED it. She was excited about every animal and I have to admit, it was interesting to learn more about the animals. Our guide was a little weird, but hey, whatever. Poor Amber had stroller duty because Emilia got so excited, she tried to run around the place and see all the animals up close. The poor tour guide was probably exhuasted by the time he was done with us. Our 45 -60 minute tour lasted an hour and 15 minutes thanks to my little explorer. We encoutered a mama peacock and one of her babies and the tour guide saw Emilia making her move and backtracked to make sure she didn't chase them....just doing his job. I chuckled to myself though....like I can't tell her not to do that. Oh well, like I said, I chuckled. She got the most excited about the Llama. She ran up to the fence, and I mean RAN saying "yama, yama, yama." She impressed our tour members. A couple of them remarked on how smart she was..... I just told them that we had recently started watching Diego and there was a show on Llamas the other day. It was cute, she was soooo excited!
Later that day, we went to the park for a birthday party. Emilia was being very antisocial, but had a good time none the less.
Here are some pics from the weekend:
where did the peacocks go?
If you look closely, there is a baby on the mama's back...too cute!
