Zoo Time

Today we used our zoo membership and headed up to the zoo. We met up with good friends of mine and their two littles and had a great time!

We happened to hit the seal/seal lion area right when the trainers were feeding them, and they put a small show on at the same time. It was awesome!

I think Davids enjoyed the zoo, as much as a fifteen year old can. :) But he had fun hamming it up with the kids...

Squeezing into the wagon and letting Liam pull him...

We got tickets for the dolphin show and I LOVED, as did Braeden, seeing Davids' reaction to this...


I was glad to have caught that on camera! And later during the show he caught me taking pics and gave me his peace sign! :)

He also was great at giving Liam a ride when Braeden wanted to sit in the stroller for a while.

Of course then Braeden couldn't be outdone...

Davids offered Olivia a ride too, but she declined! :) After getting home we ate dinner and hung out. Soon the kids (the little kids) will go to bed and then Davids and I's night is just beginning.
I somehow managed to get tickets for Eclipse tonight. I tried a while ago but they were sold out and somehow I managed to get two the other day at the last minute. I think they may have added a theater, but no matter how, I got the tickets!!! :) My neighbor across the street offered to babysit and I heartily accepted seeing as the littles won't even know she's there, they'll be sleeping their little hearts out! :) She's coming at 10 and I figured we could get a dessert or something and then catch the movie at midnight. I am going to be so tired! I already am! :) But it'll be worth it! Can't wait!!!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
