Yea for Spring!

I have been working a lot and haven't had much time for blogging. I am working 4-5 days per week and receiving training to cover the NICU so work has been a little crazy, but we have had a little time for some fun.

We went to the zoo a few months ago. I thought it was much more pleasant to go when it was a little cold that when it is blasted hot in the middle of the summer. I had a "why am I allowed to be a parent" moment while we were there. Kaden was running around like a crazy man (as usual) and he ran through the fence that was holding the camels. (Keep in mind the "fence" consisted of wooden posts with 3 peices of wire strung between the posts...not much of a fence). I was screaming at him to get out of the camel's cage and my screaming made him laugh (as usual) until he turned around and noticed there was a camel about 12 inches from his head. He got scared and yelled for me...and for a second I was too scared to run and save him, but then I got brave and ran an got him. It has been over 2 months and kaden will still come up to me and say "I run in the camels and you get me."

Kaden loves working out in the yard with Rob. Here they are fertilizing the lawn.

We went to Baby Animal Days. It was a rainy, muddy, mess. but Kaden loved it. Here he is petting a lamb.

And here he is petting a little chick.

That's cool that you're getting NICU training, I would be totally lost trying to do that. Sorry we couldn't go to baby animal days with you guys. They extended it because of the icky weather and we took Spencer last Saturday. He totally loved it so we'll have to go with you guys next year. I loved the story about the camels, it's so hard keeping up with a 2 year old!

Oh no! I would be terrified myself to run into the Camel area... I can totally see Jack doing something like that too. Glad you can laugh about it now. He's getting so big!
