This week

For the past couple months I feel like it is rare for us to go a day without putting our swimsuits on. It is just too dang hot to do anything else but play in water. We don't get up to Tucson too often especially in the summer we try to avoid it, but Aaron had to go up there so we decided to join him on the drive then ventured off to one of our favorite places there....the zoo. I promise even though I am not much of an animal fan I really genuinely love going to the Tucson zoo. It is so pleasant every time we go. There are a ton of trees (it kind of feels tropical or something, maybe that is why I love it) there's never a crowd, the animals are always active like this time the elephant was totally dancing if you don't believe me I got video (never figured out how to put video on here, but I have proof) the polar bear is always swimming without fail. The tiger usually strolls right past us, no joke we could be skin to skin if it weren't for the glass separating us. Maile loves the monkeys because more than once they have been sitting on the same rock staring at each other for long periods of time. This was a hot one though! I had second thoughts about being there when drops of sweat started dripping off my nose just as I was getting the girls situated in the stroller to start the day! As soon as we got there we headed for the "watering hole" got drenched, walked around, got drenched again, walked around some more, that was the only way to do it. We had so much fun! If I had pictures of myself in this water place I promise I would have the same facial expressions as the girls, we had a blast!

This is one reason why I love Sundays because it is one day of the week where I feel like we actually get dressed up and I actually do something with myself and the girls, so I always think they look so cute and clean, I just had to have a photo shoot this week, but here's how that went: mouths full of treats trying to bribe at least one cute picture of sleep deprived Livy. Bribery does work for Emmy and Maile to hold still but not necessarily to smile and look at the camera.

I just bought these hair things and totally fell in love with them- I love how wild and crazy they are
