Queen of the zoo

 Headband gifted by Sadie Sky Boutique
We were SO excited once we made the decision to move to Arizona because it opened so many doors for fun and adventures! We are just outside of Phoenix and they have everything here (except for snow, which is okay with me!) Taking Mia to the zoo was at the top of my list when we got here so I planned the funnest date with Courtney and Ryder the day before Valentines! We are obsessed with our friends (Courtney and I met through blogging/Instagram, then we met in person 2 years ago and have been the best of friends ever since! Now we finally live in the same state and have weekly play dates, it's the BEST!) and Mia loved exploring with Ryder.
Mia is obsessed with animals and LOVES when Eric and I make animal sounds with her, so I thought she'd be thrilled to see the animals at the zoo. Imagine our surprise when Mia and Ryder preferred the pictures of animals, over the actual animals, ha ha! Silly kids! Of course we had to take the kids on the carousel ride (that would be Mia's "I'm excited but trying not to act like I'm about to jump out of my skin-excited" face, ha!) and let them run wild through the zoo. Mia was in heaven! You better believe we are going to be proud owners of a zoo pass and we will be visiting on the regular!

Ok, now I'm jealous of your weather! It's supposed to be in the 20's here tonight! :( Looks like I need to move to AZ now! Glad you guys had fun at the zoo! I'm such a kid still, I love going to the zoo!

This is the cutest!!!! I am soooooo jealous of your weather!

Brittany said...

Look at the short sleeves and shorts! So jealous! Zoos are such an awesome way to pass the time and I think getting a zoo pass is totally worth it. Usually, you only have to go three times or so to pay for the pass itself! Plus, the zoo is always different because you never know what the animals will be doing at any given time!

As I sit curled up in a blanket with "feels like -24 degrees" temperatures I can't help but be a tad bit jealous of all that sun! And Mia definitely looks like queen of the zoo...girls got attitude. ;)
