Daxton's a BIG BOY now!

Daxton just finished preschool on Wednesday and was so excited to now move on into elementary school.  With it being his last day they were letting any parent who would like to come and eat lunch with them and help out at the school.  So I went, had lunch with him and then they had a little program of some of the songs that they had learned that year.  It was a really cute program. If I can get the computer to work I will try and get a video or two of him dancing his way through songs.  He was very active during the program.  He would sing and dance at the same time.  I think he is going to be in show choirs later on in his schooling just like his daddy.  He was a lot of fun to watch, so hopefully, keep your fingers crossed, that I can put a video of him.  But I do have some pictures of him during his program and he is a hoot.  Now he is going to be going to the same elementary school that I went to, now that's weird!!!

Hogle Zoo.... the perfect day!

So May 15th we went to the zoo with our really good friends, Aaron and Chelsey and their family!!!! IT WAS A BLAST!!  The kids a great time together and love to play... which makes it all the better and a lot more fun!  We followed each other up to the zoo and had a great time!!  The photos that I took can pretty much tell the story for you and I won't bore you with all the details, but I will tell you of a funny experience I had a couple of times while we were there.  There were a lot of girls that were wearing a similar outfit that I was wearing.  I had a teal blue shirt on and brown shorts. One girl even had a similar hairstyle, but a little darker in color.  We were taking pictures of the kids on a statue of a rhino and the older kids were getting restless so I took them over to see the mandrills and Mat, Chelsey and Aaron look over to where I was and there were 2 other women there with similar outfits and Mat asked, "Which is my wife?"  Chelsey took a picture of that event, but I found it interesting that that was a popular outfit for the day.  Can I just ask you one other thing?  WHY DO GIRLS WEAR HIGH HEELED SANDALS TO THE ZOO?!?!?!?  It just hurts my feet just thinking about it!  Who are they trying to impress?  Countless times we saw women walking in high heeled sandals or shoes and it really baffled me! Wear something comfortable!  I said my peace enjoy the photos!
