Oakland Zoo, Mom Retires, Lindsay's 30th, Gymnastics, & Pet update!

This week was another fun and busy one for us. Started off with my mom's retirement party.
Her teacher friends all got together for a day in the sun and to celebrate her 37 years of teaching. You will be missed at school I'm sure, but we are so glad you will be able to play with us more often. Giada and I attended the party for a yummy lunch, and a dip in the pool. Fun Monday!

Then on Wednesday we went to the Oakland Zoo. We met up with Renee, Nico, Jackie and Gianna. What a fun day. They carpooled over from Petaluma area so it was about the same distance for all of us. The kids enjoyed the animals, and we enjoyed catching up. We've decided to get together monthly for a new adventure!
The kids were excited to see a real life "Sophie"
As some of you know - I like to avoid a stroller as often as I can!! But I gave in for this day and am glad I did. She's getting heavy and can't walk for that many hours just yet!
The goats were a live petting zoo area. The kids could brush them, but of course not climb on the rocks which was all Nico and Giada wanted to do.

I thought this would be a great time for a photo but Giada apparently did not agree.

Mike had a birthday this week as well. A couple of Mike's buddies came over to help him celebrate and watch the Twins and Giants games. Neither game turned out with a win, but Dylan spent some time figuring out how to make the most out of this ball pit. My only hope is that Giada was not impressed and doesn't do it on a daily basis. Nicole and I thought it was pretty funny....until we had to pick up all 300 balls. :)

This weekend I went to Sacramento to meet up with Linds to help celebrate her entry into the 29.1 club. Good times at Riverside Clubhouse and Shady Lady! The morning came REALLY early as I headed back to Lodi for a 10K. Ill spare you the story of how the start to the race was 2 hours delayed....... none the less I got a morning run in and had a great night out with friends!
Every week we go to gymnastics class. It's so much fun and she gets all this energy out running around. It's parent tot so I can't really stop to take pics, but I tried to take this little video. It's not the best, but you get the idea. At the end of class she gets to run in this ball pit. She does it over and over, all the kids love it. Enjoy!

Max has been pretty patient lately when Giada wants to play dress-up!
