A trip to The Maryland Zoo

On Thursday, we took the kiddos to The Maryland Zoo. My Mom, Mandi, Aleasia, Hayley, Brayden, Madeline, and I all piled into my minivan and off to Baltimore we went. The ride down was fairly uneventful...until we were in the right lane when the Zoo was to our left...but after a "legal" U Turn...we were back on track. The Maryland Zoo is very shaded, which was great since it was a HOT SUNNY day. All the kiddos enjoyed themselves so much....and the sad thing is my kiddos have never been to the Zoo before (and I have been wanting to take Hayley there since she was Mady's age...guess 4 1/2 years later isn't bad...huh!! LOL) Here are a few pics from our day at the Zoo.

**Updated Brayden's CARS Room Pictures**

Today my WONDERFUL mother came over and put up Brayden's border in his room. I am so pleased with the way it turned out. Can you believe that my Mom and I picked out the curtains 2 years ago when we moved in not knowing what "theme" Brayden's room would be. They compliment the walls PERFECTLY!!

The bench Scott had made about 10 years ago as a trim bench for him to use at work. He was going to throw it out a few weeks ago and I snatched it up, painted it, and it will be a great place to "hide" things once I get some navy blue and red storage bins to put in it.

I want to get him a CARS light for on his dresser and possibly change the drawer pulls

Brayden all smiles sitting in his new CARS room, although he wanted to sleep in his sister's room again tonight since he has been sleeping in there since last Sunday!!

Here are pics of the making of Brayden's CARs Room

Blue paint = 1 PERFECT coat

Red paint = 3 coats and counting..

This is the border that will go between the two colors.

I purchased 4 rolls of this for next to NOTHING on

Can't wait until it is all finished!
