Vets Day with the Animals

Hey, good people. Just poppin' in for a second. 

Hope everyone had a great weekend. My plans were to tailgate for the big game (Bama/LSU), but it didn't work out. My in-laws made it a no-children tailgate (which I LOVED, because tailgating with kids is work and I was looking forward to just chillin!), but it ended up not working in my favor - ha! My mom, who would have been my sitter, had a very busy weekend herself.  Of course she offered to give up her Saturday so that I can finally get to a home tailgate this year, but I wouldn't let her do that.  She does a lot of volunteer work through her church, and this was a big weekend for them.  "Thanks for NOT working the health fair, Mama, so I can go live it up in Tuscaloosa!" Nah, couldn't do it. 

So M and I stayed home and chilled.  It worked out great because I was able to get in M's room and work.  I separated clothes for donating, selling and keeping, packed up old toys to give away, organized her bookshelf, etc. M is ME all over again, unfortunately, with the way she keeps her room.  Now I know how my mother felt all those years.  (I'm sorry, Mama!)

Anyhoo, we'd been in the house all weekend, so we couldn't wait to get out today.  We were off for the holiday, and wanted to take advantage of the 70-degree weather.  I recently won zoo tickets at a school event, so it was the perfect day to put them to use. 



The fall colors around the zoo were breathtaking! I wish all the leaves wouldn't fall off so it could be this pretty all fall!



My sweet girl had fun. I love how outings like this are even more enjoyable as she gets older. Good, good times.  

Last, but not least, I'd like to say THANKS to all the men and women who have served -- including my ol' man (stole this pic from my sister's Facebook page): 


Dad served when I was a little girl, so I don't know much about his time in the Army.  But I'm still proud.

Have a great week, everyone.  Be good and be safe.

Love,
G
