Zoo day/Sick day and Blog announcement

Last week we took the kiddos to the zoo and aquarium in NOLA. They had a blast!

On the way down to the zoo we got a little surprise. Judah threw up in the car. And like.. it was everywhere. Like.. all over his clothes, all in the carseat. Even leaked out of the carseat. So when we got to the zoo he was already in his 2nd outfit.


Lucy ALMOST touched an alligator.

The orangutans performed for us.

So did the gorillas

The kids all climbed a tree.

Of course, Mawmaw was a hit with the kids 🙂

The cutest kiddos ever! Love these two.

Lucy in the “jungle”

And a jaguar. This thing was taller than Lucy.

Then we had lunch there and made our way to the aquarium.

Judah spilled his drink on himself in the car, so he was now on his 3rd outfit.

They were both VERY impressed with the aquarium.

Baby jellyfish.

In the Amazon…

In a speedboat…

Then Judah got all fussy, so I put him in his moby.

This picture was taken about 3 minutes before he vomited again. This time, all over me. You lose a lot of your modesty when you’re covered in puke. I got shirtless in a public restroom. I had to scoop throw up outta my bra. That was… unpleasant.

So then, I was wearing a zip up hoodie and Judah got to his 4th outfit… his sister’s jacket.

He didn’t mind because the penguins were so cute!



Then in the gift shop, he threw up again. So I carried a half naked baby out to the car. And he got into his 5th and final outfit. PJ’s!

The next day he was fine – and we cleaned up his carseat!

What a cutie!

Overall the day was great. After he’d throw-up he’d smile and play and run around. So… he still enjoyed the day. I bought a shirt because I was burning up and the last little vomit got me again. So I got a little souvenir too.

Overall our day was wonderful.

Now for the blog announcement. I started blogging a daily devotional April 16, 2012. That was 2 years ago this April. I’ve taken a few breaks (once when I had a baby…) but overall not a lot of time off from daily devotions. I’m going to stop doing daily devotions April 18, 2014. I’ll still blog about the kiddos and I’ll probably still do devotions from time to time when I have good stuff to share; but I’m not going to daily blog anymore. At least until I feel like God wants me to. I feel like he’s drawing me into a different time in my life and I’m going to start pouring in to me, instead of into others for a while.

I hope you understand. I have over 450 devotional blogs (When I stop blogging I’ll have over 500), so if you just started reading them in the past year – I still have quite a few that you haven’t read. So if you want to continue reading, I’ve got a few I can share with you. I know I have a lot of folks who read pretty regularly, and I’m sorry that I’m stopping. It’s hard for me to stop. They don’t do for me what they once did and I feel like that’s God telling me to stop. I still really enjoy my Marriage Monday blogs and will probably continue those after a short break (maybe a week or so). Thanks for understanding and being so supportive!

I love when people come up to me and say things like, “Your blog just hit the right spot today!” or things like that. Those help. I just need some me focus. Again – I’ll probably still do some devotions, just not every day.

Thanks for reading and growing with me for the past two years!

And don’t forget about the giveaway – still have til the end of today to get in on that!
