seals, where are you?

Stella and I had a fun time at the Queens Zoo on a quiet Monday. She rode her first roller coaster and loved it so much we rode it three times!  We rode other carnival rides, saw some animals, ate a peanut butter & jelly sandwich, and shared a Mr. Softee chocolate ice cream cone.

Her favorite was the seals (sea lions) today. She's been sleeping with a mamma and baby toy seal figure lately--makes sense.

We started our Memorial Day right with hotdogs at Nathan's for their 100 year anniversary at Coney Island.

Stelly hit some amusement park rides. At one point she yelled "This is sooo much fun!"

And then she had a bit of beach time or should I say, gross sandy puddle time.

The ocean and shower water was ice cold, so the girls had to air dry, brush off, and ride home a bit sandy. The Mr. Softee ice cream helped though.

ninno's rehearsal dinner

Stella had a fantastic time playing with her cousins at Ninno & RG's Rehearsal Dinner at Hill Country BBQ. We were so happy that she didn't stay home with a sitter. It was fun to watch her interact with Jenna especially, who she absolutely adores. She ran around with Hadley (age 1), Jack (2), Riley (3), Maci (4), Ava (5), Jenna (9), and Jake (11). It was fun to see all the kids together.
