Petting Zoo Party

Chalin was invited to Gabby and Lilly's "Petting Zoo" B-Day Party, and he had so much fun!

Riding a pony for the first time, which he loved!

....and again....

...and again!
This picture didn't turn out well, but he really did enjoy petting the donkeys, too.
Saying hello to the bunny rabbit.

...and visiting the bunny, again.

Enjoying a wagon/hay ride given by Haddee.

Turtle, turtle

The other day while Chalin was at MDO, I found a turtle on our driveway. I decided to put him in a box with some grass and save him for Chalin to see once he got home. Chalin loved it!



Chalin went to touch the top of the shell, and the turtle got scared and hid in his shell. Chalin is saying, "Where did he go?!"

Notice how the box has a ton more grass in it now? Chalin thought the turtle might need some more, and by more, I mean a lot more.

Happy Mother's Day!

...yes, I'm really behind on my posts. Sorry! I wanted to share with you some of the gifts that Chalin worked so hard creating for Mother's Day.

Chalin painting the stick flowers all by himself.
(Thanks for the idea, Saradee.)

The finished product, along with fingerprint flower pencil holder jars,
which I thought turned out super cute.
I also made some flower pens to go with it.

Hand print flower on a canvas.

This is the ONLY picture I could get Chalin to take.
As you can tell, he was super excited about it, too.
In this picture we've got: Grandma DD, Mama Dolly, Uncle Justin, and us of course.

Happy Mother's Day again to all of the wonderful,
amazing moms in my life, whether you are family or friends!
