Upcoming Adventures and a Trip to the Zoo!

It's been a crazy past couple of weeks, but things are calming down and we are getting back into a more calmer routine.   This weekend my younger sister turns 30! We are going to Kansas City, MO for the weekend to watch a Cardinals baseball game and do some partying.  I am excited.  I am a little nervous too.  It will be my first weekend away from the munchkin, and I am going to miss her, along with my husband, terribly!  Hopefully, I will be having so much fun it won't bother me too badly.  Only 2.5 more weeks until our family vacation in Michigan.  We are renting a house on the lake and will have a whole week to just spend with each other and forget about everything else.  My sister Amy and her family will be going along as well.  I can't wait.  We haven't gone on any real vacation in a really really really long time.  I just need to get out of town for a little while!

I have started getting a little baby fever recently.  We are not quite ready to start trying, but it could be pretty soon!  I am nervous about being pregnant again, I didn't enjoy it as much as I would like to say that I did.  Don't get me wrong, there are moments I loved.  I loved feeling her moving inside of me and knowing that she was growing and would be with us soon. I love the anticipation of her arrival.  What I did not love was getting so huge and uncomfortable!  I was also very overwhelmed with the infant stage and have been  really enjoying the age the munchkin is at now.  Starting all over is a little scary to me, but I am still excited none the less.  I am hoping the next go around will be a little easier.  I am excited about adding a new little baby girl or boy to our family and giving the munchkin a sibling.  I also follow so many pregnant bloggers right now and its a bit contagious!

We took the munchkin to the zoo this past weekend.  It was cold, rainy and yucky but we still had a good time.  It was her first time going to the zoo and it's been a while since I have been there myself.  If you are ever in the St. Louis area, you should definitely check out the zoo. It is one of the best zoos in the country AND it's free!!  My girl Anna, her hubs and little boy met us there.  We hoped the rain would pass over us eventually, but it never happened.  Luckily, we had our umbrellas, so we soldiered on. I didn't get very many pics under the circumstances, but I grabbed a few in between raindrops.











I have been trying to keep up with all of the blogs I follow, even if I haven't been keeping up with mine.  I have some new recipes I want to post soon too!  Hopefully I will be adding them in the near future.

I hope you have a great trip and a great family vacation! I remember getting that baby fever around the time my daughter turned two. It's funny how the body works...
