1st Easter Egg Hunt

video

What a sight to see, a bunch of kids running to pick up eggs off the ground. Oh the traditions we come up with! :) Neela had no idea what was going on. I thought we would focus on "1" egg, potentially "2". She saw the egg was interested for like 3 seconds and then playing with the wood chips. I tried to demonstrate what she needed to do, but she was distracted with picking up the wood chips and trying to put them in her mouth. It was so freakin adorable. Other kids were circling her wondering if she was going to actually pick up this egg because if not, they wanted it. :)

1st trip to the Zoo

Ok, so Austin Zoo is not the most fabulous zoo for Neela's first zoo experience, but they did have rescue animals which is a great thing. She loved seeing the animals and hanging out with her Daddy and Mommy.

It's funny because one of the first animals we saw was the black bear. She instantly saw it and was pointing and getting really excited. Tim and I were laughing because we were thinking she is going to like all the animals because they somewhat look like our dog Rocky (a black lab) and she LOVES Rocky.



So we start with the stroller because we are currently on pavement, but the pavement stops at the entrance and continues in gravel. So we pushed the stroller, but held Neela.... the entire time. :)



Neela loves spending time with her daddy!


I think the lion was at the top of Neela's list. She loved watching it move around. (also it was really close for her to see) :)

Overall, the trip was fun and educational for Neela all at the same time. Now I have an excuse to go to the zoo. I love having a little girl. :)

Below are the lyrics to the song:

Missing

I saw the queen
Swam out below her star on sea beneath
Though I lifted up my hands to her
She never lifted me

Oh, something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me as lovers left me to bleed alone

Found something sweet on the island with daughters of Eve
But through thick and thin they've gone away
And only left their grief

Oh, something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me as lovers left me to bleed alone
Something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me as lovers left me to bleed alone

Something's missing in me
Something's missing in me

Down here love wasn't meant to be
It wasn't meant to be for me
Down here love wasn't meant to be
It wasn't meant to be for me

Oh, something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me as lovers left me to bleed alone

Something's missing in me
I felt it deep within me as lovers left me to bleed alone

Something's missing in me
Something's missing in me
Something's missing in me
Something's missing in me
