Going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo

"We're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo!  How about you, you, you?  You can come too, too, too! We're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo!"  Did you sing along?  You're welcome for the earworm!  If you've never heard the song before, DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK!  (<---- I'm serious.  One of the hazards of being a music teacher is that you have silly kids songs always stuck in your head! Of course I guess being a parent of a toddler is pretty much the equivalent! If you do click the link, don't say I didn't warn you!)


Sewing along with Project Run and Play was actually not part of my schedule this time around..... I have a full plate and I didn't know if I could squeeze in the challenges!  There's nothing like a trip to the zoo to get my behind in gear though!  I decided that I would put an applique on the kids shirts before we went on our adventure!  Eva Mae is wearing a cute peasant type dress that I made for a craft fair this past fall - the color combos aren't perfect but I think she looks adorable! 

The appliques are at Planet Applique (Cute Giraffe and Cute Zebra).  I love being able to match my kids and I know it's not going to be too much longer that I can get away with it for Christian! 

I can't believe he will be 5 in July!  Time flies!

Eva Mae looooved the monkeys!  This picture of her is so pretty!  I got a new 50mm lens and it's not the best for a zoo trip (can't zoom in or out) but I'm excited to do more shots like this with more depth perception!

The highlight for Christian was probably the train ride! Now that the weather is starting to warm up I can't wait for more outdoor adventures at the zoo!

Thanks for stopping by today!!!  I have been sewing a lot and can't wait to share some of the recent creations with you! If you're on Instagram I would love to connect with you - my profile is
 I finally have a smartphone!!!
I'm looking forward to seeing all the unique looks this week on Project Run and Play!

(Check out this cool pic I got with my lens!  I love that you can barely tell it's behind glass!)

And since this fishy looks like Dory I will leave you with another earworm:
Dory: Hey there, Mr. Grumpy Gills. When life gets you down do you wanna know what you've gotta do?
Marlin: No I don't wanna know.
Dory: [singing] Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming. What do we do? We swim, swim.
Marlin: Dory, no singing.
Dory: [continuing] Ha, ha, ha, ha, ho. I love to swim. When you want to swim you want to swim.
Marlin: Now I'm stuck with that song... Now it's in my head.
Dory: Sorry.

    Just wanted to let you know that I linked your free bloomer pattern from Craftsy on my blog today. I am doing a sew along for a little dress and had a request for a bloomer pattern. I didn't have time to draw one up myself, so I linked yours. :)
