So what did I do on my birthday? Well, my friend Candy called and invited me and Ellie to join her and her three kids (it was also her youngest's, Lucy, 2nd Birthday!) to the zoo. Since I had missed Ellie's preschool field trip to the zoo, I thought this would be fun...our Zoo Boise has some new attractions like a baby giraffe and a giant anteater! Overall it was a good time...including nice weather (not too cold and not too hot) until Ellie freaked out in the Butterfly exhibit (luckily this was at the very end of our time there)---she just started screaming and saying there were "bugs all over"...so I had to "excuse me, pardon me" through a huge line of people in the exhibit to get us outta there. BUT the rest of it was pretty fun! Here are some photos...
I'm a mostly stay-at-home mom from Boise, Idaho. I have a wonderful husband, Peter, and a beautiful 10 year old daughter, Ellie. I enjoying volunteering at the elementary school, and serve as the PTO President as well.
I moved to the Boise area in 2002 (when I got married) from Eastern Washington (Spokane area), where I grew up.
I am a Christian and five years ago my family moved across town with five other families to help plant a church. I love having a wonderful, supportive church family nearby. Our missional community/small group serves the homeless of downtown Boise.
My favorite hobby is scrapbooking, although baking (mostly cookies) runs a close second.
When I'm not scrapping or baking, I love spending time with my family, going on walks with our black lab, Loretta, and watching romantic comedies.
