celebrate play things to do

Photo Friday #14 and #15

I’ve been so busy…it’s pretty bad that I have to keep loading my once a week blog into two. Oh well. 

So here’s a bit of what I’ve been up to, in photo Friday form:

jared and I went up to Santa Barbara (where we managed to not take a single picture) to hang out with some friends. It was lovely! On the way back down we stopped in Orange County for my cousin’s wedding. I was one of the bridesmaids. I was pretty worried about wearing yellow but I think it turned out to be a “good” yellow, hah. Her wedding was beautiful! Then we stayed up there at Rachel and Matt’s house. It was a lot of fun seeing their new place and hanging out. They made delicious delicious food and even had Easter eggs for us Sunday morning 🙂 We managed to not take a single picture there either!! What is the world coming to?? We also got to experience their cute new dogs, one of them is farty. Farty dogs are pretty funny, gross but funny. Anyway, that’s what we did for spring break.


Here are Shannon, Diann and I at the wedding:

Another thing that I’ve been up to lately is going to the Wild Animal Park. I’ve been there 3 times in the last month for different Special Ed. field trips. It was a lot of fun hanging out with the kids and watching their experiences with animals. Being in speech I NEVER get to go on field trips so this was pretty cool for me.
The last time we went we actually saw a cheetah walk right by us. Apparently they are really docile animals and they walk them through the park in the mornings because the guests like it! It was so awesome!! I think the very best part though is right after we saw the cheetah, we walked by a little pond with a duck in it. One of the kids started jumping up and down screaming “duck, duck, duck, and water!!!”. We were laughing so hard, the kid JUST saw a cheetah walk by and he’s excited about a duck, oh and water. oh man.

I happened to have my camera out so here’s the cheetah:

2 days and counting until we are homeowners 🙂

we’ve totally seen that cheetah!!! so cool! I loved that he was with his dog buddy. 🙂

The duck story reminds me of when I would take you to the San Diego Zoo and you would get so excited about the chickens that would walk in front of the stroller. Close up is better.

You look so pretty in that pic! I’m glad you found jewelry that worked. 🙂 (P.S. Special Ed kids make me smile!)
