The end of the stay for Annie

Brandon had to leave right after the surprise party to get home. But Annie stayed longer. On Monday we went to the zoo and had a great time. Rece just really gets into the animals these days. If we lived closer we would probably be there once a week. He gets so excited especially about the monkeys and penguins. And we got to see the penguins eat that day! And Annie's camera caught a reflection and the penguins were chasing it like dogs do. It was pretty funny. It took a while for us to figure out what was doing it. Rece really enjoyed the petting zoo area and was trying to chase the goats. Here he was trying to look at it's eyes!And this was the first time Rece would sit or even get close to the animal statues. He did for the polar bear and the tiger. And last time he wouldn't touch the snake but he did this time! This is what happened on the walk back to the car. He was zonked! But of course as soon as he was in the car he was up and non-stop talking!

And Monday night Annie and I had a girls night. We went to dinner at On The Border and then to see Knocked Up. It was funny but I definitely think when you have already gone through it, you have a different perspective and it is too real to be as funny as other people think it is! But I laughed and had a good time and Annie and I hadn't ever gone out just the girls before so it was about time!

Then on Tuesday we went Strawberry picking. Rece had a blast at least for the first 15 minutes. It got a little old after a while but he loved picking the strawberries and eating them right off the vine. He was a mess!!

And on Wednesday we rested the whole day. It seems as I had developed some food poisoning and was not feeling great from about Tuesday afternoon through Saturday!!!!!!! But then Wednesday night we had gymnastics. Annie was pretty impressed by the whole experience-the place and activites and how well Rece did. She seems to think he will do great in preschool.....we shall see someday ;)

Then Thursday we went and got Carmine's pictures taken (as already posted), then we went and got ice cream-which Rece didn't even want. Then Annie had to leave us! Rece was busy doing something when she left so he didn't even really realize it. But then when he did it was kind of sad because he was walking around yelling "ANNNNNIE, ANNNNIE"

We had a great week!
