We Went To The Zoo!

Sorry I missed posting yesterday, but we went to the zoo! Our local zoo just opened up a new area, the African Adventure, and I wanted to check it out before I take my preschool class in May. The girls were up for it, so off we went!

It was very busy when we got there, but we had no trouble seeing the animals. The walkways were wide and there were lots of places to view each area. This is the view of the savanna when you first enter the African Adventure.

It was empty when we first got there, but pretty soon, we saw these cute little gazelles running and jumping and hopping around. They were so cute! Then the wildebeest came out and chased off the birds. It was like they were all so excited to be out in this beautiful place!

We headed over to the giraffe pavilion where they have a giraffe feeding station. The zoo had this before too, but you had to reach up to give the giraffe some leaves. Now you are up on a platform and the giraffes’ head is right next to you. Very up close and personal!

Next we headed over to the lionesses, where they were busy sunbathing. They are so beautiful!

Here is one of the zebras enjoying a peaceful day of eating all he wants.

Look at this tree! It’s so cool and huge! It is right by the elephants and zebras and you can walk all through it. The kids were having a great time!

That’s just a little part of our zoo. I’m so glad they have made a better habitat for these animals. I know there are plans to keep improving and I can’t wait to see what else they have planned! I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Easter!

Sunshine and Blessings

Corner News-November 27, 2015

Hello and welcome to another edition of the Corner News.  I hope that all of you had a great Thanksgiving and good time with family or friends.

So, because I like fashion and taking pictures of my family, I am going to share how my mom and I celebrated Thanksgiving.

First of all, I actually had the day off from work.  Hooray!  So, I was actually able to dress up and get ready to celebrate with my family.  I decided to start off the celebrations by posting a picture on Instagram.

And, here is the actual outfit!

The jeans are the same ones as the blue skinny jeans from my fall fashions blog last week.  The blue shirt is actually a men’s shirt that I purchased from a thrift store.  I also had some brown boots that were Haley’s that she was getting rid of, so I took them.

I also added a gold flower necklace that I bought from Forever 21.  I used it as my statement piece.  I then added small brown bead earrings as a little extra.

So enough about me, here are the centerpieces that my Aunt put together.  They were very cute!  And on each of the pumpkins were a small tag that told us who was sitting where.  This was a great idea!

And finally, we took a family picture because we hardly get the chance.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving!  And…now it’s on to Christmas!
