An Elephant & A Boob...Everyone's favourite zoo story...

This week was the first time that we've had a "vacation", where we weren't jetting off here or there, feeling more tired than we were before the vacation started...The past few years whenever we had time off it was usually spent going to visit family, attend an out-of-town wedding or something of the sorts...And when we lived abroad it was explore here, go there, see this, do that & I wouldn't have wanted it any other way...


We never really just took a week off to do nothing in particular, with no real plans...However, we did just that, just us as a little family & I have to say it's been lovely...


For the most part our week has been filled with beach days, ice cream, parks & slides, longs cuddles in bed, corn on the cob, baby wearing, road-tripping-car-ride-naps, antique stores, smiles & giggles, eating toes, cotton candy, long walks, carnival rides,  an attempt from the hubs at breakfast in bed TWICE {and even with nearly a decade of waitressing experience, maneuvering with a baby, dog and toddler was nearly impossible} snugs while watching cartoons, lazy sunshine afternoons with Deac, dinner sans shirts or bibs & special memories like seeing Noal's reaction to a giant elephant up close & personal...


We brought the hooligans to the zoo yesterday - Noal has been pretty excited about going for days...Heck so have we according to this...



It was as perfect a day as you could think of...Nice weather, both kids chilled for the car ride & at the zoo, Noal so freaking cute seeing the animals, making noises & clapping- Only one little glitch in the whole day...


We got there about 10 minutes before the zoo opened, perfect timing to give Pip a quick ning...Craig parked the van away from others so that I had a wee bit of privacy while nursing...



So, Pip's having at er, my dress {bad outfit to nurse in on my end} is all the way down, so one full boob is visible & all of a sudden Noal starts screaming "elepat" "elepat" & making an elephant noise...Thinking like I always do, my boy is so smart, he must have saw the zoo sign with an elephant on it, to then be SHOCKED when I looked up to see a bloody elephant with it's trainer & a crowd of people parked right smack in front of the van...So, right dead-on-smack in front of my visible boob...Bloody hell...That poor trainer's face- He couldn't get that elephant to move faster if he tried...Good times...


We met again later in the day...My boobs thankfully were put away this time...



Anyways, beauty of a week - I love summer - I will let the photographs speak for themselves to share our week "vacation...































Happy Summer Y'all...
