Have my wonderful husband home the whole week, and I'm so glad because today we had a school function to attend.
At the Wildlife World Zoo, the Arizona Connections Academy had it's annual Thanksgiving get together. We were able to meet the teachers and other students and enjoy a full day at the zoo, which we always enjoy.
I don't know about you all, but I could go to the zoo all the time and never get sick of it.
I took a few photos, so let me show you a little of what we did and saw.
Love otters, they are so cute.
Sea horses, another of my favorites and this one is just gorgeous
Pink flamingos, my favorite color :)
Hubby snapped this one of me and the kids, they're getting so big, I feel like I'm shrinking when I stand next to them hahaha
Nicholas and his teacher
This ostrich was just cracking me up, she stood right against the fence and stared straight at me everytime I aimed the camera in her direction
Giraffes, love love love them
and I love these two boys too :)
Jasmine and I declined this one, we don't like hanging from heights on these things
Ended off the day with the kids on the Flume Ride....nothing like cooling off since we're still in the mid 80's here
It was just a wonderful, relaxing day for us all.
And then we arrived home and I found a huge package waiting for me at the door. Also really excited about this one because I'm doing a review in a few days AND this one also includes a giveaway for you all.
As I mentioned in previous posts, you will see quite a few reviews and giveaways going into Christmas, and the reason is that I am hoping they will give you all some ideas if you're looking for some great Christmas gifts, but also because with giveaways, it's a sure bet of winning some great items for yourself or to gift. :)
But now, I'm going to relax with a cup of chocolate latte and my book. Tomorrow I'll be starting on the Thanksgiving preparations and even though it's always just me and my little family, I still make a huge meal which we enjoy for a few days.
Are you cooking this year? Spending it with family, or alone?
