Zoo with Grandma GG

Back in May we were blessed by my friend Keli with free tickets to the Des Moines Zoo.We decided to take my mom since we hadn't been able to spend much time lately. We thought it would be a great way for us to have some fun outdoors!

And we were right! We had so much fun looking at and learning about the animals. It was a beautiful day with wonderful weather.

This little cutie is so photogenic!

 We packed a picnic lunch and after a few sights we went out and found a picnic table to enjoy our lunch on.

After lunch we played on the new playground they had.

Kayla's infamous "funny face"!

My little monkey is getting so brave on the playground

We headed back in and had some more fun checking out all the Des Moines Zoo has to offer.

We all really enjoyed being able to stick our fingers in and have the little fishes give us a little nibble

Kayla loved playing around in these over sized egg shells

My mom is so beautiful!
 Thank you Keli for blessing us!

Kayla turned ONE??!!!!

I am so blessed to have been chosen to be this little girls momma.

 I can't even begin to express how happy she makes me. She makes me smile even on the roughest of days. The Lord has blessed me with an amazing year of watching her grow, learn and love. And I am so thankful for each and every day I get to spend with her.

We had a wonderful day celebrating with friends and family. Kayla did great with all the attention and sugar she received!

And we took lots and lots and lots of photographs! I mean how could I not, look at this sweet little thang!

A big thank you goes out to all the family and friends that helped make this such a special day! And a special thank you to my Papa Rod and Grandma Diane for all they did for us!

Seriously I can't get enough of this girl!!!
