Baby Paparazzi /pɑːpəˈrɑːtsi/, /pæpəˈrætsi

I love my weekends.  Even when its so busy and Sunday comes to an end and I crash land into bed and fail to make so much of an eye flutter for the next 8 hours..
That’s what kind of weekend we had- and it was oh-so-fun:)
My weekend always starts on Thursday (hello amazing) even though technically I work on Fridays from home- its really just emails and being available for a phone conference when needed.  This week I made sure to get all my crap done so I could be out of email jail by Friday:)
Mean muggin’ with Jo before bed on Thursday night

and belly laughs with Parker.  You cant see it, but she has yogurt ALL over her face.  We really enjoyed dinner that night.
 Friday morning was a gorgeous start to our busy weekend- On the agenda for the day? Breakfast at Ol’ South Pancake House before heading out to the Fort Worth Zoo.

I LOVE the zoo.  I turn into a 7 year old kid when we walk through those gates.  First stop is always the giraffes..

 and then the eleeeephaaants!  New babies on the block!  Two elephants were born within just a couple of weeks of one another.  They only have them out a couple hours a day- and we got a chance to see these precious little guys- Bella and Bowie

This is the girls’ second time at the zoo, and I can tell a major difference in observation this time over the last.  Jolie and Parker were both really into all the animals.  Pointing and jabbering over what they saw.  I am totally digging being a momma. 

Loved the fishies for sure.

Daddy showing Parker the birds

 Sister had fallen asleep in the stroller, so Parker and I went into the bird house to see if we could feed them

She studied that little guy so hard.  Super interested in what it was doing.  The bird was really docile and even let Parker touch its head when she reached up.  Then the birdie nibbled her finger a little and the look on Parks’ face was priceless. No crying, just surprise. 

Zonked for an afternoon nap before lunch

Parker followed suit.

More animals!  This turtle was gigantic.  I had to get a picture- which totally doesn’t do justice.

It was such a good day with my little family!  We got to see so many of the animals- going first thing in the morning is the best time- that’s feeding time and so all the animals are out and waiting. 

Saturday we had big plans to go to the Flower Mound Pumpkin Village and just as we pulled out of the driveway, it started to sprinkle.  BOO!  A cold front was blowing through and the weather was sort of blustery with the wind kicking up and making those sprinkles feel bigger than they were.

So- we started our errands early and brought the Parker and Jolie traveling show to Costco.  How precious do these two look?  I mean- I totally have the ‘mom goggles’.. but, you can’t deny their cuteness.  As I was taking this picture- there was another random couple taking a picture, too!  They have twin daughter that are in college now and wanted to send it to their girls:)

Crazy pants

Totally blurry, but SO silly.  Couldn’t leave this one without documentation.

Heyyyyyy sister
Ok- enough with the pictures in the bakery section of Costco.  People be like ‘that woman is nuts.

Yes.  Yes I am.

pumpkin.overload.  The rain didn’t stop us from loading up our cart at Market Street with plenty of Cinderella Pumpkins and gourds for the front porch.  I LOVE this time of year!

After our crazy antics at Costco and pumpkin hunting at the grocery store we dropped the little bits with their BB for the evening while Jordan and I grabbed a bite to eat before heading to church.

I took the liberty of ordering my birthday coffee at the ‘Bucks.  Cool weather, coffee, and channeling my inner lumberjack makes Jesus smile just a little bit wider from above. 

Sunday morning I headed out early over to Ashley’s to prep for showering our sweet friend Jacqueline and her expected baby girl Juliette (Due in December)

Everything turned out amazing and I can’t wait to share the pictures with you!  We had a great turn out and it made me even more excited to meet that baby!

After the shower Jordan and the girls headed our way and we watched the Cowboys (such a disappointing game!) and ate pizza.

Busy bees feeling right at home- per the usual.

Another one of those weekends that was non stop and Friday at this point feels like forever ago.  I wanna go back!  Anyone else wishing Tuesday was the new Friday- Say ‘ayyeee’

    I kind of want to have kids just so that I have an excuse to go to the zoo more often!

    I love seeing pictures of your girls interacting. I think twins are so cool because they always have the other one there. It's such an interesting experience for them that most of us don't get to have!

  2. I seriously can't get over how stinkin' cute they are together!!!! They are so sweet and have the BEST facial expressions!

    Super cute with those Halloween outfits!! Which brings me to the next point…I hope you bring back WIWW, even if it's what the girls wore (so that I have inspiration for my own girl)! But I really appreciate your style and taste, so I hope to see a return of WIWW 🙂

  5.! Love it…such cuties having nothing but fun times. 🙂 And how cute was all that shower decor?! Adorable!
