I was in desperate need of getting some laundry done the other day. The laundry room is a no no room for Isabelle since she always heads over to Ruff's food dish for a handful of goodies. What-to-do... what-to-do... Ah ha!

Izzy just had her first trip to the zoo this last Friday! Grandma and Mommy had been talking about taking her for a long time and finally decided on a day. Unfortunately, rain decided to come down on the same day :( But dang it, I wasn't going to let it ruin the plans we had to see the funny monkey butts! And, let's just say they didn't let us down in that department (man oh man, this one chimp looked the way I felt after labor and delivery. "Hang in there buddy, I'll be back with some Preparation H!) Anyways, Izzy was cracking me up. I was really looking forward to showing her all of the animals she sees in her videos like the elephants, zebras, and giraffes. However, they weren't nearly as cool as the mallard ducks and Canadian geese that were hanging around. One almost snagged a chicken nugget out of her hand! Aside from the Nugget Burglar incident, I think she had a great time. She kept pointing at everything to make sure we saw it. In fact, most of the pictures I took show her pointing at something.

Before we had Easter dinner (ya know, at noon) Izzy was playing with us out in the front yard. She was loving having her bare feet in the grass. I freak out at the thought of being bare foot in the yard because a monster spider could easily eat my foot off. So, instead of passing on my fears to my daughter I let her walk and sit on the grass, and I even took a deep breath and sat down with her. And whadoya know, we both still have our feet!
