Sonic. Drive-In For a Change

Location of my first "real" job.
One of my best friend's Dad was the owner. 
We ate LOTS of Sonic.  
One historical night there, the two of us each ate a Chicken Club Toaster, cheese tots, cheddar peppers, and a peanut butter fudge sundae......and we didn't even puke. 
 I was a rollerskating carhop and it ROCKED.  
I think I only wiped out twice and on one of those I saved the food.
Now we have eaten there with our kids. 
My world has come full circle.

A New Zoo

We got to explore a new zoo today.  And what is better than a new zoo? A new zoo with friends!
The flamingos were a brand new exhibit as of today.
Angry flamingo?
Bug was the "Farmer of the Goats".
I love his profile.
We were HOT by the time it was all said and done with, so of course we HAD to stop for icecream.
We went for the least messy kind....in a cone.  HA!
Love and miss my friends here.  So happy to hang out with them  LOTS while we can.

When Did He Get This Big?

Bear- 17 Months Old
*Loves cars, trains, helicopters, motorcycles, etc.
*Extreme Momma's Boy.  Therefore, we get LOTS of good quality time together, and the gym and I don't. :)
*Most recent nickname, "Heep".  He is a total sheep dog.  If any of us leave the room he is in, he is immediately calling our names and looking for us.
*Strong willed...VERY strong willed. 
*Thinks he is funny and loves when we laugh at him.
