Visit to San-an-Tone!

Fairly recently, say around the first of LAST month our little family and Riley's parents made a trip to San Antonio for a quick visit.

Saylor Quinn is a hoot and it is more and more fun each time we see her.  I can't wait to hear what that chick has to say when she really gets to talking.  It may be interesting to hear what she and Reno have to say to each other.  ha ha They pretty much like each other, but sometimes maybe not.  

The zoo was a great fun time for the kids and for the three of us pushing strollers.  It really went well.  We didn't experience a fit, no one fell asleep, we didn't lose anyone, kept all our digits, you get the idea.  I didn't get a single pic of an animal.  The hippo was the coolest thing ever.  They were swimming and it felt like we were right there with them.

It was kind of fun here just posing and not caring if the kids even looked.  They did, which is surprising.  We only take 2,500 pics each time since my SIL is a photographer.  I love it though, because I can always count on her when I'm being lazy or forgetful.

Not sure exactly what Reno is thinking here.  It could be....."I'm about to hurt somebody if we take one more pic." or "Hey ladies, check me out." 

I love how my Scout girl is posing here.  She is getting too big and I'm not liking it one bit.  I'm not liking it for a couple of very different reasons but I don't guess I'll go there now.

Reno was two in October and we have been trying to get his two year old pics taken since then. We achieved that.....right in the middle of the zoo.  Apparently is was near a butterfly exhibit (see the sign in the pic), but I don't remember that at all.  So, since we stopped and took Reno's pics it was also a great time for more "cousins" pics.  I'll do a separate post of his pics.  They turned out awesome.

So it seems that the zoo was just many, many photo ops for us.  Scout had gotten the giraffe mask at the zoo in Abilene a couple of years ago.  More masks are what I encouraged the kids to choose in the gift shop.  Then of course the kids wouldn't take a picture in them.  The crazy mamas obliged.  Kait and I crack up when we see this pic.

This visit included lots of running around.  Usually we are just hanging out at home, so it was a fun change.  They held hands in the car, they might have fought a little, they screamed, laughed, ate, spilled, you name happened.   We also got plain ol' pooped out as you can see.

Reno became attached to #4 and #8.  He even slept with them.  So funny!

We are looking forward to our May visit.  It will be here before we know it!!

Fun! We went a couple years ago.. in July... with a 2 month old. Yes, we were insane, but it was the only time we could do it, and we were desperate for a get away! I'd like to go back this time of year, or fall.. when it isn't so blessed hot!

Look at you with two post's in a week! Blek. You make me look bad. LOL Okay, my lack of posting makes my own self look bad. Hope you aren't eating too much dirt in Clovis today. Spring is a dreaded and awful time of year in my opinion. ;) I'll call you later about Lubbock!
