The Barnyard

While Daddy was at the A-Day game, Mommy and I went to The Barnyard. It it way, way, way out in the sticks!

I fed the sheep,

and this pig,

and a goat.

I did NOT feed this donkey, he was too loud! HEEHAW!!!!!

I fed this piglet a bottle!

Can you believe I rode this pony . . . twice? I did ask Mommy to hold my hand though.

Hi, kid!

This turkey gobbled at me as loud as the donkey heehawed!

Llama, llama!

Look at this sweet chick!

I told Mommy I wanted to hold that gray one . . .

I reached right down and picked him up!

I loved on the bunnies.

After playing with all of the animals, I decided to play on the playground.

Before leaving, Mommy and I enjoyed a popsicle.

The Barnyard, in Tuscaloosa, AL, is a great place to visit!

"Slide Into Spring" Trip

On Spring Break last week, the children of my church took a trip called Slide Into Spring. We went to Chuck E. Cheese - it's about an hour and a half from church. On the way, we stopped at 5 parks. We got out of the church vans and went down the slides at the parks as quickly as we could, then ran back to the vans. Here we are getting out of the vans . . .

. . . racing to the slides!

I went down the slide with Ms. Sharon (Amelia's Mommy)!

And I went down this one with her too.

Here are my church friends who went on the trip.

Pizza time!


I loved playing air hockey.

Love this guy, too!

My favorite part of this trip was the ride home. Amelia and I laughed and laughed every time we went over a bump - maybe just to stay awake! I went to sleep in the car between church and home (that's about a 3 minute ride)!

The weather has been so beautiful that Mommy and Papa and Nana and I decided to look for some flowers to plant. We learned very quickly that we should have called Mimi or Mama Kaye before we went shopping, because all that was at the nursery were pansies and marigolds. Mommy doesn't know a lot about gardening, but she does know these are fall flowers. I really want some ye-yoh flowers. We'll go back in a couple of weeks.

I enjoyed looking at all of the plants.

Pulling the labels out and "reading" them was as much fun as looking at the flowers.

I stomped on the ground covering and the pebbles on the ground bounced. I laughed and laughed and stomped and stomped.

What a fountain! I asked for a drink. Mommy said no.

What are these? Let's read the label!

Thanks for going flower shopping with me, Papa and Nana. Maybe we can find some ye-yoh flowers next week!

Eating Boiled Eggs

Mommy thought this deserved a post all of its own.
I am a very picky eater in case you didn't know. I am just like my Daddy - in that, I know if I like the way something tastes just by looking at it. So, you can imagine Mommy's shock when I asked her if I could eat one of the hard boiled eggs that Amelia and I colored. Mommy said, "Sure!" but warned me it was not a sweet treat.

Can you see that tiny bite I got? Bet you thought it was going to be a big one . . . so did Mommy!

"Where can I spit this out?" was my next question.

Amelia tried a hard boiled egg too!

Although her face does not look sure, she did enjoy her egg.

She ate it all!

Mmmmmmm mmmmmm!

Happy Easter!

I hope you have lots of time to spend on my blog today. . . this is a long post!
Happy Easter!

The Easter Bunny was good to me. He brought me an Easter puppy. . .

. . .and some M's . . .

. . . and Skittles . . .

. . . and a George DVD . . .

. . . and best of all, my first pair of flip flops!

Mommy and I went to church. The children brought flowers to decorate the cross in the sanctuary.

Mommy helped me make an Easter Bunny cake. I am not afraid of the mixer any more.

Mainly because I know I can lick the beater when the cake batter is in the pan!

I got a bath while the cake was cooking and cooling. Mommy cut the cake so it would look like a bunny wearing a bow tie!

I only asked Mommy 527 times if I could lick the icing while we were icing the cake. She let me lick the icing and she kept on working.

After I ate some icing, I helped Mommy put eyes, a nose, a mouth, ears, whiskers, and a bow tie on the bunny.

Delicious Bunny Cake!
