Happy Monday! I know lots of people are off work today for President’s Day. I have to work which is fine with me, since I have spent most of the past week in bed! (and NOT in a good Valentine’s Day romantic way…) I had a nasty bout of stomach flu, and I can honestly say I do not remember the last time I have been that sick! (and for so long) My sweet husband was the last man standing and he has been taking care our whole sick family!
Yesterday was basically the first time I left the house since Wednesday, and I had to force myself since it was my sweet girl’s 2nd birthday! We were planning to go to the zoo to celebrate on Saturday, but I just couldn’t do it. By Sunday morning I was motivated and ready to go! But first Mila opened her gifts. Her favorite gift by far is her ‘big girl’ Elsa shoes. I knew she would love these since she wears my heels all around the house.

We are lucky to live near Zoo Miami, since it is such an awesome zoo with lots of interactive stuff for the kids. It is HUGE though, so I highly recommend renting one of their pedal bikes. The kids had a blast sitting in them and it is way easier than walking. (but get there early, or you will waste your whole day waiting in line to get a bike)
|Beautiful day at the zoo!!|
|So much to see!|
If you go there, be sure to check what time the giraffe feeding station opens and get there 5 minutes before! It is a very cool experience and the kids LOVE it! I’ve done it a few times before and it really is amazing having the opportunity to get so close to these huge, beautiful animals!
Back at home, we sang Happy Birthday after dinner and lots of people commented on Instagram about how cute Mila’s cake was. I have to agree.
|Hello Kitty cuteness!|
It was a Carvel Ice Cream cake and it was in the ready made frozen section at Publix where all the other Carvel cakes are. The only downside is that the inside is just vanilla ice cream with sprinkles, no chocolate crunchies. (which I think we can all agree is the very best part of a Carvel cake) But the cake was so darn cute and Mila just LOVED it.
|Wish big, sweet girl!|
After 5 days of doing nothing, I am way behind on my blog stuff, so this post is my way to get you caught up on what’s ben going on… while I catch up on all the posts I want to write! Hope you have a fantastic week!
