Marley Farm Visit


We decided to check out The Marley Farm yesterday.  The girls had a lot of fun and so did we!  Its very affordable ($6.00) for all of us to get in and an additional one dollar for feed.  The awesome thing about this place is they are all rescued animals so all the money you give them goes straight to these animals.  Shawn and I were just as excited to see the different animals they had.  We saw a camel, white tail deer, horse/zebra mix (really cool looking), lots of cows and donkeys.  They even had some exoctic birds.  The girls were a little freaked out at first to feed them.  After awhile they got more comfortable.  We will definetely be back and are highly considering have their 3rd Birthday party there! ...thanks for the great idea Stacy! 

Shawn feeding the zebra/horse mix (check out those teeth)!

Ava a little timid when one of the horses touched her hand.

We first pulled up to the feed area to pay for admission and buy feed, since we weren't even leaving the parking lot we decided to let them sit our laps.  Ava loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Once we were all to hot to stand it.  We went for some frozen yogurt at Froyona
Ava couldn't wait to leave the store, she was diggin' into her bowl eating all the toppings before we could pay for it.  No surprising, leave it to Ava! :)

Toddler Beds


We had to face the facts that the girls are getting more daring and adventerous.  We I was freaked out that they would jump out of their cribs.  Being the frugal Mommy that I am, over priced beds were not an option.  I found a website online with free building plans I absolutely love this site!  All things considered we decided against that plan and go for something a little more simple.

Our trip started at the local HD.  According the website listed above the wood is Alaska is much cheaper.

Finished product! 
Our first build together.  Overall I am pleased with how they turned out. 
Grand Total: Drumroll please... $80.00!  (for both)
 Boo Yah!

Since the girls have the capability to get off their bed, I have been finding them in interesting places.  Its very entertaining.  For the most part they have done a good job at staying in their own bed.  Couple of nights they have completely swapped beds and Shawn has witnessed them cuddling together, regretfully did not get a picture.  These girls never seem to surprise me!

Remi being the strange dog that he is was found here, on top of the girls laundry basket.  In requards to the last post on potty training.  I guess they aren't ready.  I am hoping within the next couple of months they will potty pros.  Until then we are trying our hardest to enjoy every minute of their youth.
