Our perfect day

There are some days that are just perfect.

You wake up with a smile on your face and you feel good.

It's going to be a good day.

and then it actually IS one.

Friday was that day for us.

I took the day off and it was a special day just for the two of us.

Just mommy and Brady. We called it Mommy Baby day!

We went to the zoo on an nice late summer day.
Rode the Choo-Choo!
Watched the cutest baby elephant play in the water.

He laughed at the bears, chuckled at the Penguins and belly laughed with the kitty cats (or as people know them as Tigers).

Took a milk break.

Said hello to some friends.

Some of them waved back.

He's confused because there is a blanket that keeps moving. OH! Now, that makes sense! There is a MONKEY under there, mama!!

Watched an Alpaca try to eat some metal.
Brady of course, laughed as he did at every.single.animal.
Momma FAILED at taking a picture of the two of us.

He had the most amazing time playing in the water.
He laughed at the other kids and wanted to run right along with them.
Drops of water on fat baby fingers.
Smiles and laughter that meant he was truly in his element and having fun!
It is times like these that I want to hold onto forever.
Times like these that need to happen more often, to happen slower and be appreciated so much more.

We (meaning I) walked a lot.
I didn't care. Nor did I care that I got all wet, my dressing dragging from the water and dirt.
We laughed. We ate lunch together. We talked and he sang.
Mommy didn't leave and go to work. Mommy stayed and played all day long.
Brady got a stuffed monkey........ and mommy got amazing memories.
That was our perfect day.
I think we'll be doing that more often.
When life gets too busy and we feel it passing us by, we'll take a moment and stop.
Take a break from all the hustle and bustle and take time to laugh and smile.
Take time to play.
Take time just to be.

Take time for extra cuddles.
Take times for just you and me!

What a sweet post. You always amaze me with your positive messages but I know it must be so hard being at work, away from that adorable little boy. I'm glad you got to have such a special day together.
