David and I have been dying to get to the STL Zoo since the end of June when the Sea Lion Sound Exhibit opened. Aaden loves water, and anything that moves quickly, so we figured it was right up his alley. 

Aaden loved it!!!

My favorite picture from today!

Taking a sippy break

Talking man to man with the Orangoutang 

Clapping for the Grizzly Bear

Giggles with Daddy

Walking like a big boy

Cute little baby elephant 


Today was an awesome day all around. We enjoyed the morning at the zoo, used a gift card for lunch at PF Changs, and had half price Cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory for National Cheesecake Day.

Baby #2 was in a food coma of epic proportions!

City Garden

Today was a lovely day full of fun and family!

We got up early went to breakfast at a local favorite The Egg and I & then went downtown StL to the City Garden a free splash pad with Gpa and Gma Watson. Aaden loved every minute of being with his grandparents doing his favorite thing ... playing in the water!!!!

Baby and I got to enjoy a wonderful frozen lemonade! MMM MMM
It was truly delicious in the heat. :)

This Mama is so very very blessed!

Biscuit Donuts

This Mama has been craving donuts lately.
LIKE something awful, LOL. So, after a little recipe shopping, I decided to try my hand at making my own donuts.

Heart Donuts ... of course!!!

waiting to try mommy's creation

This is the link to the recipe. We thought they were quite good. 
Not too greasy.

Super easy, super quick, super not healthy ... but super yummy.
Baby #2 is very very happy, and Aaden got to try a heart donut hole.
 He thought the were quiet divine. Are you surprised??
