Our Zoo at The Zoo

Monday, April 11th, 2016

The weather was warm enough to get outdoors this weekend, which was a nice change. I truly LOVE spring in New England, except for when it thinks it’s winter. Luckily I have tough, Connecticut children who don’t think 54 degrees requires jackets and are happy to spend a few hours at the zoo. We love the Roger Williams Park Zoo – it’s a nice size to do with the kids and the zookeepers are all happy to answer my curious children’s 10,000 questions.

His favorite zoo animal was the chickens. I don’t know why my baby is so weird.

This is Bert. He eats peanuts out of your hand.

I wear Linc 90% of the time (usually because we’re by ourselves) but it was SO NICE to have someone else to do it.

GIANT BIRD WATCH OUT FOR THE GIANT BIRD

There is no snow in the current forecast. I feel very hopeful that we might actually get some spring in the near future, or at least less snow. I can’t handle much more snow. I’m too pregnant for snow. My entire maternity wardrobe is maxi dresses and cardigans, so it has to be at least 60 degrees as soon as possible. OK THANKS GOOD TALK.

This week is Week 2 Of All The Fall Activities Starting which means we add Judo for Evan. I’m really hoping it helps with his ability to focus on something OTHER than an iPad and maybe control his body a little bit more when it comes to school. So now we’re up to Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday activities. Next week we add swim.

My hope is eventually we’ll all be so tired we sleep 12 hours a night every night. I am totally up for a 6 pm bedtime.

Can you believe I’ve done this nonsense for 250 weeks? Caroline wasn’t even BORN when I did the first one. So I suppose I can’t even think about quitting, despite the fact that I can barely remember to do them. This one is late and I had to check my dates three times because it’s so hard to believe a week ago we were still on vacation. Real life happens SO FAST.

Sunday:

sunday1

Evan is doubtful that 3 people in a one person kayak is wise.

Linc loves vacation

sunday3

Caroline is ALWAYS ready for more pictures

Monday:

monday1

If you look hard enough, you can almost see New York down the river

I liked the reflection in the back of that tanker

monday3

Linc is happy to see all his stuff again

Tuesday:

tuesday1

Caroline is writing a song

tuesday2

Grumpy pants needed a walk to get ready for bed

tuesday3

I really, really love this front porch.

Wednesday:

wednesday1

The zoo was so fun.

wednesday2

I will never get tired of these photos.

wednesday3

I had three ladies tell me they liked my hair and none of them even notice I was nursing a baby.

Thursday:

thursday1

Lunch at Quincy Market should always involve a lobster roll

thursday2

Boston Children’s Museum

thursday3

Linc was over Boston (and I was over my poor choice of shirt on a 90 degree day)

Friday:

friday1

SUPER COOL PRESS EVENT POST COMING SOON

friday2

I was really good at juggling, if my really good you mean terrible

friday3

Red Lantern at Foxwoods = ORDER ALL THE SUSHI

Saturday:

They must have bought those water bottles at Target. Poor confused children.

saturday2

Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaap

saturday3

What? I’m hungry.

I forgot I had Virginia vacation photos to post, plus I have the post about our fun date at Foxwoods, so as long as I don’t die of heatstroke (we’re on day 5 or 6 of 90 degrees plus) I’ll have more new blog stuff up soon.

Zoo Day June 2015

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

I have taken a TON of photos over the past week. I know you’re probably thinking “Um, but Suzanne, you ALWAYS take a ton of photos, why is this new information?” Really, I haven’t actually been taking photos. I’ve been trying to get used to wrangling 3 kids. It’s kind of been kicking my ass, especially in public. Even with Linc tied to my body I have a hard time, because he’s either grabbing the camera or his weight changes my center of gravity and I have a had time balancing to get interesting, in focus photos. Besides the

Besides the photo I take every day for my 365 project, I’ve hardly been doing any creative or documentary photography. This blog was built on me sharing photos of our adventures, so it’s really been suffering from that loss. Bebehblog started with a crappy point and shoot camera and evolved into somewhere I learned, shared and grew with my photography. I am hoping I can get back in the habit of documenting our lives with more than just my iPhone.

We went to the zoo with some of our favorite friends on Saturday to celebrate Z’s 4th birthday. Caroline and Z are like two animal-loving peas in a pod, so they a great time. We all did, because hanging out with friends is the best.
