Yessss sometimes I feel like I live in a zoo. Especially since I started working the house is not always clean, the dishes don't always get done right away, we start to run out of clean clothes, Claire's toys take over the whole house and we are just a mess. So on my day off this week I had so many plans to clean, clean and clean some more but instead we decided to go play. Way funner right? We thought we would go see some real animals, instead of staring at our zoo and the only animal.....nessy. Ok so they aren't quite real animals but I had been wanting to take Claire to the Rosenbruch Wildlife Museum for awhile. I was afraid Claire was going to run wild around the wildlife so I called in reinforcements and invited my little niece Hailey :)

We had a lot of fun and saw a lot of animals and I even snapped a few pics of the two animal tamers at work.

Our the middle of the street

So I finally have some pictures of our house! I know I am so behind and such a procrastinator when it comes to blogging, but here are some pics for those who have not seen it or those that live to far away to come see it :( Keep in mind it is a work in progress and I am not an interior decorator......So ideas are welcomed!

That was probably boring for everyone but we are excited and love being in our own home and it just gets more cozy everyday!
