never a dull moment


Mia and I have been feeling isolated and cooped up these past couple of weeks so I set up a zoo day with friends this week! Of course the night before was the night that Mia decided to not sleep through the night for the first time in months, which means I got very little sleep between both kids waking up. But I knew we needed to get out of the house and socialize so off we went! It was a beautiful, overcast morning and actually kind of chilly (I didn't know that it could get cold in Arizona ;) ha ha!) We got there early, I fed James and we were ready to meet our friends on time... I was feeling like super woman!
... And then the crazy began, ha ha! Mia was miss independent and kept running off to do her own thing. Pair that with her selective hearing and I was ditching the stroller with James in it to chase Mia down constantly, BAH! I was quite flustered as I quickly realized I forgot snacks for Mia (and myself), a jacket for Mia, etc. But once we were home later that afternoon and I looked through all the pictures that were taken that day, I couldn't stop laughing! Mia had a blast running around, exploring and playing with friends! I've got the most laid back friends who put up with my crazy and we kept an eye on each others kids. I'm still new at this mom of 2 thing and apparently it's still easy for me to get overwhelmed (I honestly started to think that Mia and I should just move into the zoo, ha ha!) but days like this where I can look back with a smile on my face and only think of the good? That's when I know I'm doing something right. I'm thankful for these crazy days and friends who help me survive them ;)

So fun! I love going to the zoo even now as an adult! It's so fun to get to see the animals and learn about them, it never gets old for me! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

This is totally random but what kind of curling iron do you use to curl the front long pieces of your hair?! I can't seem to make my hair work like that and I'm desperate to figure it out!!

SO FUN! I'm so glad you were able to go out and meet your friends at the zoo. No matter how crazy the toddlers are (Mason was a wild man at the aquarium last week with Lex and Erin too), you always look back and know they are having a BLAST even though they are driving you crazy :)

I am glad you guys were able to get out even if it was mayhem! I am taking notes for when our new bundle of joy comes bc a toddler and baby at the same time is scaaary! A good scary! I love the pic of you guys lined up with your strollers!

As an adult, I can always appreciate a good zoo trip! Glad you guys were able to get out and about. It's hard feeling shut up in the house all the time! (:

Cabin fever is REAL. sometimes I think it's so much harder to get out with two babes, but man it makes a WORLD of a difference to just get out for a little. YAY for zoo trips, wish we were closer!!!!

It is so good to get out of the house, even if it does mean crazies! Esp when you can look back and think of the good =)

That's good that you got out, you need to do that & have some adult interaction & at the zoo on top of it! :)

First, you look SO good!!! You do not look like you just had a baby at ALL!! SO fun you 3 got to go out with friends and stuff :) Plus the Phoenix zoo is awesome and has so many fun animals. Glad Mia had a good time, selective hearing and all haha and I hear ya on this weird cold weather!! I'm used to heat and all of a sudden the temps dropped. Time to break out "winter" clothes!

going out with more than 1 is always a challenge!! I still get anxious about it at times but you just somehow manage
