A walk on the Wildside

Father's day and Brody's birthday collided on the same weekend this year so we decided to take a mini adventure and hit Wildlife Safari and do a little camping to celebrate.
It was quite a drive with a lot of bathroom breaks (I clearly had a lapse in my motherhood judgement when i filled up their water bottles before leaving) but we made it.
I had the chance to test out some great camping products. Brunton just came out with this new propane coffee maker. It's awesome! For a gal who doesn't function until she gets a good cup of coffee...this totally made my camping trip!

The next day we drove to Winston to explore Wildlife Safari. It was great fun! We saw some cool animals.

Although some of the more wild, animal like behavior happened right in our car...

The day ended with lots of family memories and two tuckered out boys.

Happy Birthday Brody!

Brody turns 3 on Sunday. We fudged a little on his birthday celebration since it lands on Father's Day this year and...well...he's too little and had no idea we moved the date. So, if you ask him, he's 3! Just don't ask him to show it to you - holding up 3 fingers is a tough thing to do for a little guy! The highlight of his birthday was his new bike. He loves it! You've never seen a daddy put one together as fast as Kyle when he had a little preschooler breathing down his neck! :)
He's so proud to be a big boy and join the club of neighborhood kids and their bikes! We love you Brody! Happy Birthday!!
