Zoo Trip!

Over Labor Day weekend, we thought it would be super fun to take a trip down to the Des Moines Zoo – little girl LOVES animals and we thought for sure she’d have a great time. We ended up getting there early in the afternoon {which just happens to also be nap time} and there were a TON of people there. She was a lot more quiet than we expected, though she did seem to still get a little excited at several of the animals. Overall I’d still say it was a good trip, but she’ll probably would have appreciated it more had she been a little older {and a little more rested!} Here are some of the pics:

Kate is a proud mama to six amazing little sweeties {through birth + adoption} and wife to the best husband a girl could ask for! She considers herself blessed to be able to stay home with the kids, and is just starting to get into the world of homeschooling. In her "spare-time" she enjoys sharing many of the projects, stories, and gluten-free recipes that are a part of their every day lives!
