Zoo surprise

Disclaimer: I have the best husband in the world.

Friday morning my husband woke me up (like usual) at 7:15 to tell me goodbye, or so I thought, but was wearing shorts and a t-shirt...He said, "can you be ready in an hour to leave and go to the zoo?!  I packed the car and lunches for us."  I couldn't believe it!  He knows how much I love surprises and when they come from him they mean SO much to me :)
So I was thrilled!
I scrambled around to get ready and pick out a good 'zoo' outfit :) and was walking down the stairs at 8:15 (like I was told to) and my friend Lacey was walking up them?!
She said "are you ready to go to the zoo?!" with a big grin on her face - Joel had invited another family to come with us!
DOUBLE SUPRISE! (wow was he racking up the points!) we went for 3 hours of animals, snacks, walking, tantrums (minimal) and learning - it was a GORGEOUS day outside and a blessed day to spend with ones we love!

 Little Miss' first fat lip :(

I can't wait to go back!


  1. Love it! How thoughtful of Joel to do something so deserving to a hard working and loving wife and mom! These are truly the memories that will last forever. :)

  2. That's so awesome! Well done, Joel!!
