Zoo Day

My Mom and I had been trying to go to the zoo for about a week. First it rained, then I had the stomach flu, but today we finally made it. I thought we would make it in time to beat the summer crowds, but I forgot about field trip week. I guess all of the schools go on trips the week before school gets out, because we arrived with an entourage of 25 school buses. Luckily with our vast zoo experience, we were able to duck down into Africa (the back of the zoo) and make our way forward as the kids made their way back. It ended up being a pretty good zoo trip and all of the animals were awake.

Picture Day

Monday, May 12, 2008


The first egg I cracked with two yolks was kind of funny, but when the second egg also had two yolks it was extraordinary. I called Adrianna and my Mom and they both said they hadn't seen two from the same carton. The next day I made bread and the egg had two yolks again. A couple of days later I made some eggs and both eggs had two yolks. So, out of a dozen eggs five had double yolks. I'm not sure how this happened, it seems unlikely eggs from the same chicken ended up in the same carton together. I started to get a little scared, wondered what they're feeding the chickens and if I should eat the eggs.

Eli is weaned!
He's been weaned for a couple of weeks now, so I guess it's official. I was only nursing him once a day for the last month or so, but was hesitant to wean completely. One day I offered and he said "no, no". I thought maybe he wasn't in the mood and the next day the same thing happened.
I guess he was ready, even if I wasn't.

Yesterday we made it all the way through Sacrament Meeting without going into the hall! Our usual goal is to stay seated until after the sacrament is passed. Eli was well behaved and quiet thanks in part to the Pyrah's. Eli loves Stephanie and was cuddling up next to her for half the meeting. I hope they won't mind, but we'll be sitting by them next week too!
