all the good stuff

(Sat. morning-Safari Park)
*These past few days just flew right by! I the blink of an eye!! There is just so much to see and do here-we are so very lucky. We spent all of Saturday morning at the Safari Park and it was amazing. They are very eco-conscious, recycle over 90% of all their water and materials and best of all...they really facilitate breeding and saving animals from extinction. Tara was thrilled to see giraffes, elephants and gibbons. Her fave part was seeing all the babies! The park is huge and we only saw a fraction of it...we definitely will be going back. I was surprised at how breathtakingly beautiful the giraffes were. I hadn't seen one since I was a child...back in S.Africa and I had forgotten their beauty and grace. Tara has been chattering about it ever since-she was thrilled!
*I can't believe how close we live to the beach...we go there every opportunity we get. We walk along the seawall, people/bird/dog watch, build sandcastles, have mini-picnics and dip our toes in the water. Tara is an outdoor girl for sure!
*My absolute best moment of the weekend was watching Tim and Tara dancing up a storm in the kitchen!!It cracked me up + choked me up all at once:)  
*Oh! and I just had to add this pic in! Tara got a new dress that is her absolute fave!!! She wants to wear it all the time...every day...even to bed:) I can't say I blame her...adorable!!
*We had an indoor picnic yesterday evening. We  spread beach towels on the living room floor, lit some candles and watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding-hilarious!!!
* I received a phone call from a friend I hadn't heard from in a while-we have so much catching up to do!
*I hope you all had a fantastic weekend as well...full of love + laughter + fun + all the good stuff!
