The zoo

Happy 6 month birthday Katen!

It was a very busy day today. Katen and I started off the early morning by going out for breakfast. A friend had told us about this great little bakery nearby that makes specialty muffins. Oh wow! They were sooo good. We got a cherry cheesecake muffin for Daddy, a strawberry cheesecake muffin for Mommy, and Katen picked out a Pumpkin spice muffin with cream cheese frosting on top. Nice choice! Mommy and Daddy ended up splitting it. :) We're definitely going back! Especially since Katen has turned mommy into a morning person.

After muffins, a bottle, a nap, and tons of sunscreen, we all set out for the zoo. Katen had a blast looking at the "Big Kitty" (aka the tiger), the sealions,

the monkeys,

and the elephants. Katen wanted to share this picture from her point of view. (Note the adorable pudgy toes we're sporting!)

On the way home it was time for another nap, and then after a few stops at Lowe's and the grocery store, we headed off to a BBQ.

Katen had a good time being passed from person to person for a while. Some of the people at the BBQ hadn't met her yet and others just missed her I guess. :) Amazingly, she decided not to be scared of strangers for a change, so it worked out okay.

Even the little kids got in on the action. Our friend Abby reminded me that I promised her she could hold Katen tonight at daddy's football game last Wednesday. Isn't she a doll!?

...and Cadence and her Daddy gave Katen some love as well. She's practicing for her little brother who is due any day now.
