We're (not) Going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo

In preparing today's post, I was looking back at pictures on this day last year, thinking I'd do a little "on this day in history" thing.  And you know what?  On this day *last year* Maya was running around in long shorts and a zip-up sweatshirt, Charlotte was wearing jammies and no coat, and we even went to the zoo!  I have a pretty spectacular penguin video that the girlies enjoyed watching (and by "spectacular" I of course mean "only interesting the the 1- and 3-year-olds in my house").  

(March 9, 2009 ~ ya, ya, it's technically *yesterday's* "day in history"...close enough :))

At first I was sad, because we're supposed to get another 8-12 inches of wet snow tonight (really, Ohio???).  But then I decided that it just means that spring is reallyreallyreally close :D  Really, I can't complain too much because we've had some pretty fantastic-for-March-in-NE-Ohio weather days so far.  A couple of days ago we even took a walk over to the playground about a 1/2 mile from our house (Maya rode her little tricycle the whole way!  And Charlotte walked the whole way!!).  We are enjoying the nice weather when we get it, snuggling inside when we don't, and generally waiting anxiously for the return of shorts-and-t-shirts season!



I took my camera to Story Time at the library, hoping to get some cute pictures of the girlies dancing.  But, Charlotte had a meltdown on the way in (how DARE I pull her away from the computer table, at which she was not using the computer, so that she could go to Story Time???  Worst.Mom.Ever.).  Because of the screaming, I had to leave for a minute to calm Charlotte down, and then sit at the back corner of the room, in case I needed to make another quick escape!  But, I did get to put the camera to good use taking pictures of adorable Isaac (this is "little" Isaac ~ Jamie's son, Eden's brother).  So sweet!

I imagine Isaac saying in that last picture, "oh hai! What's up with me? I'm just chillaxin here on the floor, looking for stuff to eat. You know, typical baby stuff. I mean PLAYA stuff oh yeah. I'm realll smooothhhz zzzzz zzzzzz" (sleeps on the floor).

Or, "oh hey girl, what are you up to?"

Or, "crawling? yeah, it's no big thing."

Or, "it's ok guys, I totally just tackled this crocodile--all good."

Or, "you have no idea how hard it is to hold my head up."
