claws 'n' paws wild animal park zoo

growing up, i remember visiting claws 'n' paws wild animal park several times for family outings and school field trips.  it has been several decades since i've been there.  we thought it would be fun to take noah since he only ever visited a zoo once on his first birthday.

we went in the morning and noah loved it.  he was such a good sport and saw every single exhibit.  i definitely think his favorite animal was the giraffe who he passed by a few times and even got to feed!

a well-deserved treat for noah!


noah has been such a trooper working so many dance recitals back-to-back at the theatre.  we finally had the day off on sunday for the first time in a long time.  after doing lots of dishes and loads of laundry, we took noah out to play.  we went to two different parks to play on their playgrounds and then got some ice cream.  it was a nice treat and noah really enjoyed it!

a "road trip" themed dance recital

in the middle of working dance recital season at the theatre, the dance company that i teach for had their dance recital on saturday.  the theme this year was "road trip" which meant we got to pick a bunch of great songs to choreograph to that you would want to rock out in the car to on a road trip.

i had three dances in the show this year that i choreographed.  i'm proud of all of the dancers, they did such a great job.  i love working with this staff and for this dance company.  it really is one big happy family.  everyone gets along and there's no competition which is so refreshing.

the road sign scenery was perfect and ryan's lights were awesome.

i had no idea that one of the dance moms who was snapping so many photos during rehearsal and the show got several candid photos of me working on stage!

a good time with a paper hat!

noah had himself a good time with a krispy kreme doughnut hat on friday (national doughnut day) at the theatre after a show.  he was excited to wear it and very silly spinning around and around!
