4th of July Weekend

We had a fantastic weekend over the 4th holiday. We started out Saturday morning at the zoo. They had a special Red, White, & Zoo event. Lola loved it as always, she has been missing the zoo. The weather has been so hot & Mommy has not felt up to taking her the past few months. I think her favorite was petting Eve the snake & the goats, she just loves to interact with animals.

On Sunday we headed to downtown Franklin for their 4th celebration. We met a few friends that have a 3 year old little boy named Samuel. We had a blast and there were so many things for kids to do; pony rides, bounce houses, live music & a petting zoo.

On Monday we went out to the farm for a family picnic. Lola rode the 4 wheeler for the first time and the big tractor with Gramps, though I think her favorite is still throwing rocks in the creek!

2nd Birthday!

Thanks to all of our family, Lola had a wonderful 2nd birthday party, we are so blessed! Despite a few power outages and lots of rain, things went great. My favorite part was when everyone sang the ‘Happy Birthday Song’. She just sat there with wide eyes and smiled. We have been singing the ‘Happy Birthday Song’ all week.

So about a week ago Lola was lucky enough to meet a baby kangaroo! The Director of the Nashville Zoo’s wife agreed to bring the kangaroo into Brentwood Interiors for all the employees’ children to see. Lola loved it and was by far the loudest child there. The poor kangaroo was chased all over the store, but so cute!

Lola help Gramps hold the kangaroo in its pouch; she was so excited to touch it. It was an adorable kangaroo and it was so good with all the children.
