Busy weekend

We had a busy weekend. We had alot of fun though. Saturday, we had to wake up early because it was Arianna's last soccer game and we had to be there at 8:20 a.m.
She was excited because after the game she got a trophy and her coach gave her a gift certificate to Dairy Queen.
Next fall it'll be twice as busy because Halle is going to play as well!

After soccer we got to go to the zoo. A couple of weeks ago, Halle came home from school with a certificate for the whole family to have free passes to the zoo and it also included 2 free stingray touches. She's been asking me constantly when we were going to go and I wanted to go before it got too hot outside. It turned out to be perfect for the zoo, the weather was very comfortable and it wasn't very busy!









Sunday after church we decided to get lunch and take it to the beach to enjoy the beautiful weather:



I think this picture sums up pretty well how warm the water was!

It sounds like your weather was really nice this past weekend! So was ours. It is so nice to be close enough to go to the beach and to the zoo. I am glad that you had some great family time.

Haven't been to the zoo in many years. We always talk about going to the one in Dallas, but it's always 100 degrees outside.

The beach looks amazing. Don't you just love it?! Can't wait to go. Love the water picture. I can almost feel how cold that water is. I've been in it a time or two when no human in there right mind should be in at that temp.
