The Big Cat Habitat

We took the kids to The Big Cat Habitat in Sarasota last weekend. It is a small zoo that specializes in cats but has a few other types of animals as well. I have never seen so many tigers in one place before. It was pretty cool, although one tiger was eyeing Johnny the entire time during a show! The kids loved it and were actually able to feed a Kodiak Bear and a Tiger (on a long stick through fences of course!). The Kodiak Bear was ENORMOUS. You can't really tell in the picture how big he really is cause he is sitting down.

Pumpkin Festival

We took the kids to a pumpkin festival this past weekend to try to get in the Fall spirit despite being in Florida. It wasn't quite like being in Wisconsin but the kids had fun anyways!

Alexandra's First Stitches

On Monday Alexandra had a terrible fall off of one of our riding toys and split her chin open on the tile floor. When I saw the cut and the amount of blood I knew immediately that she was going to need stitches. Two hours later we returned home from the hospital with 5 stitches in Alexanrda's chin. Parts of the hospital visit were a bit scary for her but overall she has been a trooper. She gets her stitches out on Monday.

Johnnycakes is good. He was just staring at Alexandra on Monday when she fell. He had absolutely no idea what was going on other than she had a boo boo. Nick works only 5 minutes from our house so he rushed home when it happened to go to the hospital with us. Johnny kept telling Nick in the car that Alexandra had a boo boo but he didn't.

20 Weeks (4 1/2 Months) Pregnant

I am halfway through my pregnancy already. I am 20 weeks which is 4 1/2 months pregnant. Time is flying by! I think I have started to feel the baby move but it is hard to say for sure at this point especially when it seems the only time I am not moving with two kids is in bed at night when I am sleeping.

Alexandra and Johnny are doing great. Alexandra just finished her second week of school and is loving it. Johnny is enjoying his 'mama time' at home in the mornings with me.

Alexandra's First Day of School

Alexandra before we left for her first day of 4 year old preschool. She was so excited for school to start and had a great first day!

Johnny didn't want to be left out. So I had to take a picture of him with a lunch box!

The kids and I just spent two wonderful weeks in Wisconsin with my family. Alexandra and Johnny had so much fun playing with their cousins. Wish we lived closer so they could see each other more often. Can't wait for our next trip home at Thanksgiving already!

Here is a slideshow of all the pictures I took while in Wisconsin.
