Lets go see the monkeys

I got invited to go to the Zoo with some ladies from 3rd ward Madi had such a blast and we ended up buying a family pass for the entire year. So we will be spending a lot of time at the zoo this year. Madi has already been asking me to take her to see the monkeys again.

A park day.

The other day it was absolutely beautiful outside and I was determined to take advantage of it. I called up my friend Cassadee and said pack a picnic lunch you and your kiddo are going to the park with me and Madi. We had a great time talking and playing with the kiddos. Unfortunately I didn't bring my camera so here is the only picture I have of the day I took it with my phone.


I started babysitting just once a week for some friends of mine. I watch 2 girls their names Are Kinzley and Alyvia they are cousins and it is really nice because Kinzley is 2 and Alyvia will be 2 in July so they are really close in age and Madi has a blast with her friends. It is super cute Madi calls them both by the same name and it Kissy (her attempt to say Kinzley). These pictures are just of Madi and Kinzley. Alyvia was sick that day so I don't have any of her yet.

Mommy Daughter trip to Arizona

Madi and I needed a vacation well mostly me. So we made plans and headed our way to Arizona. I am so grateful for my Grandmother who paid for my flight and almost everything while I was there. She is the best ever! It was January when we went and it was supposed to be warm but it ended up being in the 40's while we were there. I definitely don't mind though because in Missouri they were having a blizzard and was definitely a lot colder. We ate out played at the mall ate some more. I was great just to get to spend time with the family and relax.

  This is my Grandpa Rich I love him so much. Madi still to this day talks about him she loves her great papa rich.
 My cousin Stephanie and I got to spend some time together as well my sister kind of hogs her when the family is around so it was nice to get some one on one time. We went to this place that was filled with trampolines it was awesome and Madi had a blast.

 After jumping we went to lunch at Joe's Farm Grill it was featured on the food network and the tv show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
 This is the HUGE jacuzzi tub at my grandma's house and you better believe I spent an hour in there every night I was there!

 Grandma and I went to the mall a couple of times with Madi so she could play around and get some energy out of her she had a lot of fun!

It was a great little break from my sometimes very stressful life. It was great seeing the family and I wish I took more pictures while I was there because we also went and visited my Uncle Monte and Aunt Bree who lived about 3 hours away and I got to meet my cousin who are pretty much Madi's age. It was a blast.
