Birthdays and Mom's Day!

My daughter turned 7 yesterday. And of course, we had to celebrate in style! Along with her grandmother, we went to the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo. If you've never been here, I highly suggest a visit. It is a simply amazing place. Very well kept, clean, and full of wonderful animals. And as much daughter loves animals and wants to work in a zoo some day, she was simply in heaven.

We had a Scooby Doo birthday - Scooby Doo cake, presents, and fun! Happy birthday, sweetheart!

Today is Mother's Day and in addition to my daughter's wonderful handmade gifts - a hand-painted planter and a card, my husband gave me a dozen roses and the DVD of Disney's Robin Hood. I simply adore this movie and highly recommend it! Hubby is also making his famous homemade enchiladas for me and cleaned the house!
Happy Mother's Day!

    I went to that zoo one year when I was at a writers' conference in Omaha. Loved it! I'll never forget seeing an enormous white tiger lying on his back, waving his paws in the air, enjoying the sun -- and purring! He sounded like a motor! And his paw was about as big as my head.

  4. ohmigosh, when I was a little kid, I had the biggest crush on that Robin Hood. As a small child, the species issue didn't seem too important. I wanted to be Maid Marian.

  5. She's such a cutie! And Scooby Doo rocks. ;)

  6. She is beautiful and how wonderful that the two most important days of your year are rolled into one.


  7. Happy Birthday DD!!! And happy mom's day Melissa :)

  8. Sounds like you had a great Mother's Day. That's fantastic. And the pictures of your little one are adorable. Robin Hood, roses AND homemade enchiladas? You made out like a bandit. Way to go.

  9. She's got a beautiful smile!

  10. What an adorable kid! Makes me want to have just one more...a girl, to add to my four boys.

    (Yeah, that's sensible!)

    Nice to see you had a lovely weekend. :)


I love to hear from you!
