The Calgary Zoo {The Ugly}

Alright, alright….a lot of work goes into making sure The Calgary Zoo is anything but ugly, and I would agree they do a great job. Really they do. But let me tell you about my visit there, what I found out, and why it didn’t surprise me. After our morning at The Calgary Zoo, we went to spend some time with my cousin and her kids. While I was telling her about our zoo experience, she mentioned that they are…

We waited in line about 15 minutes and were then ushered…

My Busy Week….

It’s Dance Recital Week…..arguably the busiest week of the year for me. It started tonight with Jonah’s preschool concert {last one ever}, and continues with dress rehearsals for dance Tuesday and Wednesday, and follows up with performances Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday afternoon, and Saturday night. I also have a baby shower to attend thursday night and another I am helping plan for Sunday afternoon. Busy but super exciting week. As a result, my blogging will be minimal…but instead of…
