...and dey awl axed fuh you

We went on down to the Audubon Zoo...

We had a great day on Saturday. The weather wasn't too scalding so we decided to go to the zoo. Alex had a good time.

When we were in the snake/reptile exhibit Patrick took over Alex and I had Ross. Ross was happy as a clam running around in the dark, crowded exhibit. I finally got back over to Patrick to see him sitting on the bench. WHAT!?! I've been chasing around Ross and you're sitting. Then I notice Alex laid out on the bench with his "iPad" (a notebook) and a crayon and he's drawing a snake. How cool is that? Patrick said he saw a snake and just wanted to draw it, so he took his iPad out, sat down, and went to work. After we left there we took a family picture by the Oak and the drawing bug hit Alex again, he just had to draw a tree.

Toward the end all he wanted was Roman Candy (taffy) so we skipped from the Swamp on after and circled back around for the boy's candy.

Aunt Meggie took this fabulous family shot

"Here's my crayon. I'm going to draw a tree."

My sweet boys!

And this is my favorite!

If I had a superpower....

My super power would be to make all the nasty viruses disappear.

Ross has had diarrhea since Tuesday when he went back to daycare from our week off thanks to Hurricane Isaac. On Tuesday he didn't eat much and he pooped all day long. We thought he was just having some anxiety because Daddy said he screamed when he was dropped off at school. Wednesday he ate but still had diarrhea. Thursday he got really bad diaper rash because of the diarrhea. Friday it was worse. Friday night I got some fabulous stuff called Lantiseptic and put that on it. It looked better Saturday morning. I also picked up some Bag Balm. Now his butt is looking pretty good but all he's had has been diarrhea since Tuesday. I'm also putting culturelle in his food. A daycare worker told me all the kids have diarrhea so I'm figuring it's a virus now.

Sunday morning, Alex says he doesn't feel good and a few minutes later he pukes. Thankfully (and hopefully) it was only one time. Neither boy has fever (phew!).

On another note- and the reason I came to blog this morning- Ross has a new word. Tee-tee means cookie. Yes, our chunky monkey says cookie. This morning, while eating cookies, Sookie (our 12lb. rat terrier) took his cookie. Ross chased her around the house saying not nice (nah-nie).
