weekend weekend

let's see...we didn't do anything friday night. we're usually pretty exhausted from the week by that point. we made breakfast dinner, played with azalea, and then relaxed after she went to bed. saturday morning i met up with my friend sarah for coffee. it was good to see her, it had been way too long! the months seem to fly by and i realize i haven't gotten together with some friends in a really long time. need to be better about's good for my soul. ;) in the afternoon thatcher went to a friend's, so azalea and i hung out at home. we should have gotten out and done something, but it was cold and i couldn't think of anything to do. she was going sort of stir crazy by 5:00. oops. after she went to bed, thatcher and i ordered pizza and watched "the secret life of bees." i haven't read the book, but i thought the movie was really good! 

sunday we headed to the mn zoo to meet liz, joe, jake, and max. they were nice enough to let us use their guest pass, which makes it very affordable to go. going to the zoo in the winter isn't as fun as in the summer (you are pretty limited to the indoor stuff), but walking along the indoor trail with all of the exotic animals, plants, and trees makes you feel like you are in a warm jungle :) 
the last time we took azalea to the zoo, she was only 3 months old. she was a little more interested in her surroundings this time, but i think it'll be a while before she really enjoys it.

checking out some fish

we also went to discovery bay and watched a dolphin training session. it was so cool! who doesn't love dolphins? they are so darn cute and charming!

the group, minus thatcher

watching the show with dada. we can't wait to go back!

I always want to email back to your comments but I don't think you have that enabled (where I can respond directly to your comment). Anyway, want to know where your Thatcher got his name! Do you think you'd use it for a boy?

Oh sorry! I'll have to figure out how to set it up :) I honestly don't know where they came up with Thatcher. I know it's not a family name for him either. I'll have to ask my mother in law. I don't think we'd use it for a boy only because I think it would get too confusing. haha.

I figured it out! So go to and then to the left go to "edit profile" - there you will see a TON of stuff, and there should be a place to put your email. A lot of people use their personal email - I actually set up a new Gmail account for my blog, which is what I use. It comes into my personal email, but I can read/write emails from both accounts within my main personal account. Let me know if you don't see where you can enable this feature. That way when you comment on posts people can reply easily by email! If you don't want to use your personal email (understandable), set up a new one in Gmail and just search within Gmail for how to add a 2nd account to your main account. It's pretty cool!

Ok, I think it should be set up now!
