Today seemed like a good day to go to the Como Conservatory. Once everyone had napped, got dressed and fed we were on our way. Apparently Theo wasn't done napping.
To get Meadow moving faster we promised her we would stop for donuts.
We stopped quickly at Bogart's. Her new Snow White dress looked pretty cute under her big girl jacket. We had to settle for the lavender cake donuts. They were out of the good ones.
Still good though.
Meadow lucked out with the donut holes. Soon we go to the zoo and went into the very steamy rain forest room.
Theo liked watching the fish. Meadow was not afraid of the snakes.
Even Snow White was there. And ants.
We cut through the gift shop and Meadow really wanted this bear hat scarf mitten combo. Then we stopped briefly in the kids room.
Meadow asked why there was money in the fountain, we told her if you throw a coin in you can make a wish.
We all slept in super late this morning. This winter break has us staying up late and sleeping in.
It's going to be so hard this next week when Meadow goes back to school.
Meadow asked the other day why we still have Christmas decorations up if Christmas is over. I said we could take them down and she angrily said, "No! They have to stay up forever!"
So, the decorations stayed up a little longer.
Today we had a playdate with Anna and the kids. We hadn't seen them in awhile.
I stayed back and worked on some photos and videos I wanted to put together for our Northwoods NYE post. I hope you enjoyed them.
Meadow was a little shy at first then joined right in.
Back at home I was prepping gumbo and finally peeled away from my computer.
Green gumbo. One of my favorite meals. This was one of Meadow's favorite meals when she was a toddler.
With traveling, being sick and the extra sweets around Meadow hasn't been eating well. With the new year she doesn't get any sweet…
