Boo at the Zoo 2016

 "Dont you understand, Tink? You mean more to me than anything in this whole world!" - Peter Pan

Saturday we packed up the kiddos and took them to Boo at the Zoo. The weather was gorgeous and cool and actually felt like a real fall day.

We could have saved ourselves the $30 in tickets and hour car ride by just letting Charlotte run around the back yard and pick up leaves in her costume. But where's the fun in that?! This year being her 1st year she can appreciate the fall, she's totally and completely in love with stomping fallen leaves and collecting them up as her treasures.

We looked at all the animals in the zoo. Her favorite was the monkeys. We'd ask her what does the monkey say and we'd get a quiet little "oo oo" from Charlotte. We also growl like the tigers and hiss like the snakes. I'm having a blast with this age and it's by far my favorite! Watching her light up when she realizes she's communicating with us is the best!

After walking around the zoo, the kiddos played on the playground for a little bit. We were going to get tickets for the train, but with naps already being skipped and hungry bellies starting to growl, we skipped the train and headed to the nearest Chick-fil-A for lunch.

All-in-all a very successful morning out with our Peter Pan and Tinkerbelle! Major props to my Momma for making Walker's Peter Pan costume from head to toe! We've already got next year's coordinating costumes in the works! :) Love these kiddos more than anything and I'm so thankful I get to watch them grow up together!

Seafood Festival 2016

Pensacola couldn't have given us better weather this year for the Seafood Festival. Ethan met up with me after work on Friday and we walked over to the festival. Of course, first on our agenda was dinner and the crawfish po-boy with crawfish etouffee on top did not disappoint.

Charlotte napped through our dinner, but woke up in time to walk around and look at all the different booths. Of course I had to grab a couple of photo ops for next year to see how much she's grown!

We stopped by the swings to let Char play some since she had been cooped up in her stroller for awhile. She laughed and laughed as Ethan pushed her! 

We took the long way back to our car after checking out all the booths. The weather was so perfect and we weren't in any rush to get back.

Charlotte's new fall hobby is stomping every dried leaf she sees. And crying if we don't let her. You can imagine the scenic route back to the car did take forever.
And of course, what kind of blogger mommy would I be if I didn't stop and get 100 photos of my baby posing by a distressed wooden wall.

Such a great evening spent with my two loves. While I hate to see summer go, I'm excited about all the fall activities that are coming, especially with all this gorgeous weather we're expecting!

The Market on Chapel Hill

 My girlfriends, gorgeous weather, a road trip and antiquing. All the things that sum up my Saturday. 
We laughed. We ate. We gossiped. We shopped.
It was a good day to check out The Market on Chapel Hill.
I can't wait to go back next year! 
Also, currently pricing houses to move to Pike Road, Alabama.
Just kidding.
