In the Children's part of the zoo they had this little water playground that the kids could wade in to cool off. Zenock was a little hesitant at first, but then he loved it. He wanted to just sit down and just splash in the water!
They had lots of fun animals for the kids to pet in the Children's Zoo.
It was so cute to watch him with the animals.
"Missy" the chimpanzee
As we were walking out of the Zoo, we looked down to see Zenock leaning out of the stroller. We thought he was looking at something and found out he was sound asleep!
FC DALLAS vs REAL SALT LAKE
If you know JC you know he is a total Baseball fanatic. He is crazy about baseball. Especially his favorite team the LA Dodgers! He even watched the Bachelorette with me last night, just because one of the dates was at Dodger Stadium! So you might wonder what we were doing at a soccer game.... JC hasn't gone completely crazy, but he has a new found love for watching soccer. He watches the soccer channel all the time... (he says it helps him sleep). I'll be honest, it sure helps me to sleep. I'm not a soccer fan. This is all coming from a person who told my little sister Emily (who is an amazing soccer player!) that she shouldn't play the game, because it was a communist sport! So... this one is for you Em!
The whole reason we were in Dallas was to go to the game with friends. One of our good friends, Shaun loves soccer as well and invited us to go to the game with them. So after the Zoo we met up with Mike, Heidi, & Mason, & Shaun and Krystal. We enjoyed a Yummy dinner at Uncle Julio's (one of our favorite places to eat... introduced to us by my cousin), and then on to the game!
Can we just say these games are crazy! The fans are nuts! I sure wasn't complaining when FC Dallas made a goal and the guy ripped his shirt off... neither were any of the 1,000 other screaming fans. I had Zenock asleep almost twice... both times they decided to make a goal!
The final score was Dallas 2, Salt Lake 1... It was too bad they lost, but we sure enjoyed spending the time together as a family!
My cute boys watching the game! Thanks for a fun weekend!
**Does anyone know how to get rid of the double spacing in your blog?? It only happens half way through my blog! It drives me crazy. :)

Zenock also got immunized this week. I felt so bad for him. This time they had to do a blood test and draw blood. It took four of us to hold him down. I couldn't stand it!!! I just wanted to pick him up and run outside to hold him and cry with him.... It was horrible!
**(Excuse the windblown hair look... JC had me on the 4-wheeler within 15 minutes after we arrived.)
(The area we were at was so green and beautiful! There were tons of trees! At one point during the night JC was having too much fun and accidently hit a squirrel or a "chippunk." We will spare you the pictures... )
They even had 4-wheelers for the kids! (Isaac, Jaxson, & Kaitlyn)
Enjoying friends and the GOOD food!
Taking the kids on a little ride.
Heidi, Mike, & Mason
They had this cutest game for the kids to play called, "Tag Tails." It is Tag, but when you tag somebody you have to pull their tail off. (Everyone wears a different animal tail.) I loved watching Zenock run around with his little "tail."
One last ride for a "perfect day!"
I think JC could have lived out there. He was in heaven... I even had to remind him he needed to "share" the 4-wheelers... We had SO much fun!

The picture above is from Zenock's blessing day! My mom helped me so much when Zenock was born. I had no idea what to do or what was going on... she was always there for me, right by my side, helping me. I can't imagine life without my mom... even if she lives so far away! She is my best girl friend and I love being able to call her anytime and talk to her about anything. I am so blessed and lucky to have a mom like her.
Happy Mother's Day!

He is such a genius... He even learned how to play patty cake with his feet!
His favorite would be teaching US patty cake. He gets so excited when he can clap our hands together and then he will stand up and clap for us... totally imitating how we get excited and clap for him.
Taking a rest with Tip Top. He loves this little giraffe. They do everything together! Zenock has been so much fun this week, despite his one day of a 103 degree temperature!!! (We took him to the dr. and they said it was just a sore throat... He was all better the next day. :) We are loving this age and watching Zenock learn new things. Every day is something new!
