Mother's Day 2011..KC Zoo

To a child's ear, 'mother' is magic in any language.

Finally....Our HIPPOS!
A mother understands what a child does not say.

Mother's hold their daughter's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.

Daddy and Emmi sharing a moment together watching the....Don't remember...

Rhino...All morning all Emerson couldn't stop talking about the hippos. We first came upon the rhino and forever this rhino will be called a hippo. Sorry rhino, you look too much like a hippo.

Nothing is more precious to me than this.

Baa..Baa..Mommy: Emerson, did you like the Zoo? Emerson: pat, pat, pat...
The best part of the entire zoo was the sheep. She "pat, pat" and tickled them. We couldn't get her to leave.

I think she is tickling the sheep.

The joys of being a Mom.

To me, mother's day wasn't a day for presents or fancy flowers it was a day to cherish this little girl. As a family, we decided to go to the KC Zoo. Jacob and I were talking as we were driving down the road. We both said, yes, it is a day to celebrate being a Mom, but what we wanted most for this day was to see our daughter happy. Emmi loves animals and knew the joy that this would bring her. She had an amazing time and you can see on our faces how much happiness she brings to us. Who couldn't love something so sweet?!?
