Zoo, snow, and balloons... catching up on the past few weeks

In December Nate and I decided to buy a yearly pass to the Portland zoo. We live 15-20 minutes from it and thought it would be a fun thing to do with the girls. We've already been to the zoo 3 times since then, which has pretty much paid off the yearly pass. From here on out our zoo trips will be free. Yay! The girls LOVE the zoo and Sanaa asks weekly to go back. 

Layla and Sanaa (and Nate) enjoying some ice cream at the zoo. This is something I don't understand. It was cold at the zoo, yet all 3 of them wanted ice cream. Watching them eat the ice cream just made me even colder than I already was.

A week and a half ago we got a little bit of snow. The girls were very excited, so even though it was Layla's nap time, we went outside to play in the snow for a few minutes. It was a good thing we did because by the time Layla was up from her nap most of the snow was gone.

One of my favorite pictures of Sanaa. I need to frame this one!

Uncle Ryan and aunt Karen gave each girl a sled for Christmas. We still need to use them outside, but for the time being they make an awesome place to lay down and rest in! Sanaa will also push Layla around the house on one of the sleds too.

The girls found a bunch of water balloons I had forgotten about. I blew some up for them but there was so much static that the balloons began sticking to anything. There was a lot of giggling from both girls as the balloons stuck to their heads and clothes.
