Time is flying!

This entire last year has gone by super quickly but these last few weeks...wow, they're going so fast. Not too much time for picture taking lately, we've been busy getting the house ready for summer. Keith and I painted the shutters last week, as y'all know, and this past Saturday we scrubbed our vinyl siding because it needed it SO bad and I planted flowers in my flower pot and flower bed. Fingers crossed that I won't kill all the flowers this year because I do not have a good track record as a gardener. We don't have a lot going on this week...just getting ready for Ella's 1st birthday (a week from tomorrow...wow!) and trying to ween her from nursing. Which, is actually a lot harder than I thought it would be.

Last week we were able to meet up with Tonya Vaughn and her girls, Taylor and Tinsley, for a playdate at the zoo. We had a great time looking at all the animals and spending time with Ella's buddies. I lathered Ella up in SPF 50 but of course didn't think to take care of myself in the suntan lotion department so I got toasted. Oh well, always have to get that first good burn of the summer...ouch. Here are some pictures of our zoo trip and also some of Ella monitoring our work on the house.
(By the way Sis, Mom alerted me to the fact that Ella probably shouldn't have worn this outfit yet because it's a b-day present. Oops...she looked cute though! :))

Eating cherrios in the stroller and watching us work:
I love this look...she's thinking "Mom, I can't believe you're making me wear this hat and I am about to yank it off of my head in 2 seconds..."
