Let’s Party! – Minnie Mouse

20 Oct

A couple of months ago I helped a friend of mine do a few things for her daughter’s 2nd birthday. Minnie Mouse is all the rage with the little one’s and it was a fun one to help with!

Birthday Trip to the Zoo

29 Jan

Sunday was Kyler’s actual birthday. We opted for a family day to the Tampa Lowry Zoo since Kyler LOVES her animals. We planned to be on the road at 9am and just about made that. We had to turn around (only a mile down the road) because we forgot the diaper bag. We got going again and were about 5 miles down the road when all of a sudden, Kyler got sick :/ Poor thing! She told me about 2 minutes before that her ear hurt so maybe she is coming down with something. We turned around and got her all cleaned up, waited a bit, and tried again. Kyler’s a trooper. She kept asking to see the elephants and tigers and she seemed to be fine so why not, right?

We finally made it to Tampa at 1pm and Kyler was fine. She was so excited to be there. Both sets of her grandparents were with us so it made for a really special day.

Kyler with her Poppa. She is obsessed.

Checking out the Cloud Leopard. So pretty.
