Surprise of the Spring

Much to my surprise a day that I thought was going to be the best because I was getting to eat at the recently opened Freddy’s in town got even BETTER!! Apparently my sneaky husband had been keeping a secret….a visit from MIMI!!

Emma was so shocked when she got out of school to see a visitor!!  We had fun at the park & just hanging out Friday. Saturday the kids were itching to go somewhere with Mimi, so the Phoenix Zoo it was.  We hadn’t been yet & it was in the low 80’s so a good time to get out.

Isaac LOVED the stingrays…Mimi may or may not have squealed like a little girl when a stingray touched her. :)


It was a last minute idea to go to the zoo yet they had this sign ready to warn people of Emma & Aidan!!


They have this same dragon statue at the Wichita zoo!


We bought an arm band that allowed us to ride the carosel, train & visit the stingrays. We rode the carosel 3 times!! Isaac loved it!

Pretty sure all our friends and family in the midwest could hear Isaac scream as we forcefully pried him off the ride!!

We went straight to Sat. evening church from the zoo.  Matt & I had to volunteer on Sunday & decided to take mom on her offer to watch the kids and do lunch together after volunteering. Yay!!

While Mimi & the kids watched & movie & played Matt & I enjoyed lunch, browsing at Barnes & Noble.  Immediately upon getting home Emma was ready to head to Target to spend her belated bday gift card from Uncle Adam that Mimi delivered.

One hour ten minutes to spend $11. Whew.  I’ve decided people who give my children gift cards must hate me!! ;)  With her gift card she bought a ceramic painting kit that she & Mimi did together…


It was a great surprise & great visit.  We’re happy to be able to say that we will be back for a KS visit NEXT MONTH!!
