Uncle B is back in Montana

Uncle Brian went home yesterday. We had a great visit and were so glad to have a full week to spend with him! The time really went by so quickly--and we miss him already. The boys really would love for him to live closer.....maybe we can get Brian to move down here this fall! (That's what Sam and I are hoping, anyway!)

After we took B to the airport, the boys and I went to the Dallas Zoo for the afternoon. We had a scary time at the McDonalds that is right beside the zoo (two prostitutes-isn't there a better place for them to put on their make-up than the bathroom at McDonalds???-- And a lady absolutely screaming at her kids in Spanish in the play area), but then we had a really fun time at the zoo! They have tons of things to look at and lots of ground to cover!

There is a great carousel that the boys rode twice. The second time we all sat together in a little thing that looked like a nest (and it spins around like crazy!)--I thought Joey was going to get sick! We walked around for a few hours and then hopped in the car for the drive home. There were a lot of construction delays between Dallas and home, so it took longer than it should have. But that worked in my favor, because the boys both crashed and enjoyed nice long naps the whole way home!

Where do you get all your energy?! I would never even attempt the Dallas Zoo without help . . . and you have two toddlers!

Sounds like a fun and exhausting day...i would have been tempted to pull over and nap with them!
