The title of this post is "July in Review." Yes, I realize July is not yet over but if you've noticed the trend of my mad blogging skillz this may be the only post for July.
The month started with a bang. We drove to Kentucky to spend time with extended family. En route we decided to stop for the night in Memphis and go to the zoo since we have season passes with reciprocal zoo privileges. [Note to LR zoo pass holders - it still cost us $25 to get in.]
Yes, they're wearing matching shirts. :)It was our first time there and I'm in love with the Memphis zoo, it's 106 years old. It was the 4th of July and a perfect day to visit the zoo albeit hot by the time we left at noon. We saw many animals we have never seen before. I could have spent the entire day in the sea lion and polar bear exhibits.
Before leaving the great state of Tennessee we were instructed by Grandpa Majors to load up on fireworks. Mr. Intensity was working on a budget of limited time and money in this fireworks store. He was in heaven (except for the limited time and money part).
After time in the big city, we travelled further east to my old stomping grounds, where everything is greener - like my mom's behemoth ferns.
Haley (now 11 years old!!) adores Caroline. The feelings are mutual.
The next morning after coming home, there was an estate sale down the street. I couldn't believe people were lined up to go inside...with more people streaming down the street.
This week my best bud is moving 3 doors down. I'm so stinkin' excited I can hardly stand it!!!
