Sick Day!

Somehow, Big D and I were able to convince the Husband to take a "sick" day from work and come play with us!  Since Big D is on spring break, we needed a family day to do something fun.  So!  We went to the San Antonio Zoo!  I love that place.  And TG is at a perfect age to really enjoy it.  He really had a blast, as did the whole family!
It's so strange to me how San Antonio has all the fun in TX going on.  They've got the zoo, a big art museum, probably a regular museum (woah, I should probably check that out!), a waterpark, an amusement park and Sea World!  What??  Shouldn't all that stuff be near the capital? Capitol?  Hmmm, I should probably also check which one of those is right....OK, apparently it's capital.  But, alas, Austin is shockingly lacking in fun, family things to do.  They should really try and step it up....

Stupid Valentine's Day.

Not because I hate the holiday per se, but because our library is doing parties instead of baby story time, so we're stuck at home.  And a good friend moved, so we don't have many people to hang out with.  It sure can be lonely work being a stay at home mom.  This is our first week without our friends, so I'm sure this is just adjustment blues.  Next week baby story time is back on and we'll have plenty of fun!
Man, I can't even believe it's mid-February already!  Time is flying like crazy and that TG is growing like a weed.  He talks all the time and does the funniest shit!  Big D teaches him super silly stuff, too, which is so hilarious and cute!  It's a new thing all the time.  The latest is "mind powers".  She has taught him to curl his hand into a claw up by his face and make this horrible ear piercing noise!  So, when you tell him "mind powers", he does it.  So ridiculous.  But, he's also an expert tantrum thrower (already! At 18 months!).  Yesterday he cried about NOTHING for probably 30 minutes straight.  I'm pretty sure it was only because I wanted to get some stuff done....
By the way, right before New Years, we got to go to Corpus Christi, thanks to my cousin who owns a KOA down there and let us stay for FREE, and so we went to Mustang Island.  The ocean is awesome.
