Years ago when Brad would be gone deer hunting, us 'deer widows' would get together and eat, shop, and drink a little...ever since Braxton came along, we turned it into 'mommy & me' fun weekend!!! And BOY, did we have FUN!!! We started Friday night off having supper with Gma Sherri, and the Hoefers. Braxton always has fun with cousins! We ended the night with a popcorn party at home. Saturday we headed to the zoo! Who would've thought 75degrees in November?!? Well, obviously the entire state of Nebraska had the same idea! It was packed! We had Aunt Kelly meet us there, and Braxton had a BLAST with her! (we may have ruined her Saturday plans..everytime she went to leave Brax conned her into staying 'a little bit more':)
The cutest Octopus and Scuba diver;)
These fish are HUGE!!! Ever since we have been going to the zoo, I have had this fear of falling over this bridge and being attacked by HUGE fish!!!HA!!
Can you see that lazy bear laying there? I'm so glad when we were leaving town, I ran the checklist by Braxton...and he replied with, "mom, ya got my stroller incase my little legs get tired?" WHEW...good thinking!!!
Another Bear. Kelly and I were laughing, there were so many animals we didn't even know what they were!!!
Thankful he let me in the pic with this giant turtle!!
If I remember, Aunt Kelly wanted in this pic!
...and show me your silly face!
Should've lined him up with this fella every year and gotten a pic...I don't recall seeing him before...
So, last time we came, the penguin pooped in the water, and Braxton has giggled about it ever since. Guess what, the penguin went again! I think the penguins were his favorite part!! Aunt Kelly even surprised him with a penguin! (which he sleeps snuggled up with!)
Well, Braxton lined up the bar stools, and the chair tables, perfectly in 2 rows behind one another, and it was his 'bus'. He was giving me a ride in this photo. He even stops the bus, and helps you off:) I LOVE the imagination he has. While we both miss daddy soooo much, I'm thankful for the time him and I get together!
...Sunday led to another surprise! Braxton got to go to his first movie at the Theater! Aunt Brenda, & Cousins Charli, and Harper invited him to see "Wreck it Ralph". I have to say, it's been 9 years since I've been at theater:( We ALL had so much fun! I LOVED hearing him giggle out loud when no one else was!! I cannot wait for us to go again!!
