Trip to the Zoo

A few weekends ago, we traveled to Columbia to take Ella Rae to the zoo.
I wouldn't suggest the zoo in June, but other than the heat we had fun!!
Gigi and I were traveling upstate for a wedding shower anyways, so Granddaddy and Kelly joined us and we went to the zoo in the morning before the shower.
O'ma and Uncle Ryan also came down to join us!

Ella Rae loved watching the penguins swim
She got a good view of the gorillas from Granddaddy's shoulders

Ella got up close and personal with a turtle (statue)

The monkey's were hollering a lot and scared Ella Rae a little

She also got to ride a pony!

Granddaddy was so proud!

Ella Rae got to feed some goats

And a giraffe!

She even got to ride on the carousel!

We really enjoyed our time at the Riverbanks Zoo!

Some News

Ella Rae has a bit of news to share with everyone:

That's right! 
Ella Rae will be a big sister come December!
Kelly and I are expecting!

We are very excited about this new 
adventure. And I must say, a bit nervous too.

Our official due date is December 15, 2011.
That puts me at 12 weeks!
I haven't been feeling well at all- 
the cause of my lack of blogging.
But we are hopeful that will pass soon.
Until then.. bare with me!

In other news,
We are looking forward to 
taking Ella Rae to the zoo this weekend!

Hope everyone has a great Friday!
