Zoorassic Park!

Not this past Friday but the Friday before it, Ayla and I went to the zoo. We met up with some of our friends from our ward.

The zoo this year has dinosaurs through out the park. They have decided to call it Zoorassic Park. Love it!!

Ayla and I had gone to the zoo a week before this time and they had all the dinosaurs covered. This time they had them uncovered! I was so excited!!

This is my friend's daughter, Elyse! She is such a sweet little girl!

Ayla loves dinosaurs and wanted to get close but was a little scared at first!
They look real and the move and roar. They are pretty neat!

When Ayla saw this one she yelled, "Look, Mom a three horn!"

It had a baby with it.

Ayla was really excited about the baby. She is telling me about it in this picture.

I loved this picture of Ayla!

This one was pretty cool!

It had a baby too!

The cool thing about these two was...

They spit water!
All the kids loved it and couldn't get enough!

Here is Ayla with the big one after it spit the water. She is trying to catch the water.

This one kind of creeped me out!

Isn't it freaky?!
It looks like it is going to come and eat us!

Ayla had a lot of fun with Elyse!
At first she kept calling her different names. Once she called her Kim and another time she called her Megan. I have no clue where she heard those name before. I corrected her a couple of times and told her Elyse's nick name is Lysee. After that she has always called her Lysee. She cracks me up when she makes up names for people!! Lol!!

Ayla with the T-rex!
Man he was big!!! He really creeps me out because I used to have nightmares about him as a kid.

I liked that they had one the kids could sit on to get their pictures taken!

We rode the train last!
I tried to get a picture of every one but you can't see Ayla. Our party took up 4 rows.
First row: Elyse, Ayla and me.
Second row: Nathan and Doug.
Third row: Christine holding Edward.
Forth row: Bretta

We had a great time at the zoo and plan on going a lot with Christine, Doug and their 3 kids because we both have zoo passes.

Now if the weather would cooperate!

Things I wanted to post!

I have been extremely busy this week, I helped a friend with a Daddy Daughter Dance for her daughter's 7th birthday party. I helped her plan, make and set up decorations. I also made a cake for the occasion. I also made 60 cupcake for it. The dance was Saturday and it was amazing! I also worked on things for my sister's wedding, took Ayla to get her pictures taken, went to the Zoo and went to the Cub Scouts Pinewood Derby. Some of these things I plan on posting but before I get too far ahead of things I have been wanting to post (this happens a lot to me), I want to post just a few things.

First thing I want to blog is what Kurt got me for Mother's Day!

These flowers are actually from Valentine's day (something I never got to post either). Notice the Oreo's? Ya, those are my favorite cookie! Kurt gave them to me instead of chocolates. They meant more to me than the flowers because they were a thoughtful gift! I love my husband!

Now this is what he gave me for Mother's Day! He gave me avocados and kiwis, some of my other favorite things. He also made me a card. If you have read my blog in the past, you know that Kurt makes me cards and they mean more to me than any store bought card. Anyway, Kurt and I have been eating more healthier lately. The card read, "The treats have changed this time around but I hope you never do!" Sweet huh?! This made me feel so special! Like I said, I love my husband!

Next thing I wanted to blog are a couple of cakes I made last month.

I made a Miami Heat cake for my friend, Katie's son, Treaden.

Here he is with his cake.
I love that he came in a Miami Heat jersey, when they came to pick up the cake! I also love that Ayla saw me taking a picture and she jump into the background! Isn't she the cutest?!

The next cake I made was a...

I am pretty proud of this cake!! I made it for my cousin, Corin's son, Jake! This was definitely one of my favorite cakes I have done!

It was pretty much the actual size of a guitar.

Next something that made me smile!
Right after I made the Miami Heat cake, I came into the living room and saw...

Ayla had set up her 2 hamsters and her FurReal kitten, each eating their own cake. I love that the kitten got the big cake!

Last thing I wanted to post is how Kurt is so creative!

He has been making eggs for breakfast for Ayla. Not only has he been making them, he has been cutting them into things.

He made a cat for Ayla the first time he did it!

Ayla loves the book, "There is a Mouse About the House." And so he made her a cat and a mouse out of eggs. He has done this one a couple of times.

Today, he told her a story about 3 hamsters while he was making her eggs. When the eggs were done there were 3 hamster eggs on the plate. I didn't get a picture because I was right in the middle of getting ready for church. I wish I would have though, they were cute! Kurt is such a fun Dad! I love the things he comes up with to have fun with Ayla!

There you have it! I got some things posted!
I still have some other things I have been wanting to post, maybe someday, I hope! Even though, I was extremely busy this week, I tried to blog and I was having problems with blogger. Did any of you have problems with blogger this week?

Once There Was a Snowman!

On Saturday, I went to a baptism at 10 am. I couldn't believe we woke up to...

Here it is May today and we still got snow yesterday, on the 30th of April! Can you believe it?!

This is Matt and his dad, Cory.
We have become really good friends with this family! They are in our ward. They really mean a lot to me! I am so grateful I was able to attend Matt's baptism and I am so proud of him!

After the baptism, I couldn't believe what I came home to! I came home to...
I about died! I thought it one of the cutest things I have ever seen! Kurt and Ayla built a snowman together! I swear Kurt always does something so fun with Ayla when he his home with her. He is such a great dad!

Ayla kept collecting snow to add to the snowman.

Don't you love the mouth? Ya, it is dandy lions! It is supposed to be spring and we are still getting snow!

As Ayla was still building the snowman, she was singing the Primary song, "Once There Was a Snowman." It melted my heart!

She is just so cute!

Then she decided to give the snowman a hug!!

I had to get a picture of the snowman a little later in the day. I thought it looked so bizarre standing on the grass with barely any snow on the ground!

I was feeling pretty down about the snow in the morning but coming home to the snowman really softened my feelings!
