On Sunday, I had my 28th day in a row of pure barre, then we headed down to the always awesome Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. I love this zoo, all the animals are so much closer than the regular zoo and they have a moose there! You can also feed giraffes, straight from your hand to their mouth. Such a cool experience. We finished the weekend with Mark's brothers family coming over for dinner and moving some furniture around. So much fun and now I'm ready for a quiet week.
This little dude had his first ever ice cream cone this weekend! He loved it.
His little face lights up my heart
Cooper decided this bin would be the perfect place to sit...
We did tackle another totally unexpected project this weekend! Below is a picture of our ugly cement patio. I have been struggling with what we could do to make it more presentable. I looked into staining and was leaning towards that but just couldn't figure the best color. My dream would be to tear this out and replace it with a wood deck, but that isn't in the budget right now.
Our Patio Before (Don't mind the pantless baby)
So we saw these awesome wood squares at Ikea that go right on top of the cement, they interlock together. Mark was all over this project, he really wanted to do it.
It was also a good distraction when he got sick of building furniture
It ended up being a family affair and everyone wanted to help
The incredible after pic!! It made such a huge difference and we will actually spend a ton of time out here
After all our hard work on Saturday, we headed out to the zoo on Sunday.
Palmer and Cooper's first solo train ride, they loved it. Palmer was so sad when he had to get off and just kept saying "Choo Choo, Choo Choo.
My sentiments exactly Coop!
