Though our weather is a bit cooler and grayer than I’d like this holiday weekend, I hope your weekend is great – enjoy your Memorial Day!

We went to our favorite Saturday morning strolling ground, the zoo, the other day to see this year’s Zoo Babies. There aren’t many things cuter than a three month old baby gorilla named Gladys, let me tell you. Anyway, to cap the day off, a pet adoption event had set up shop in the zoo parking lot to capture all of us animal lovers on the way back to our cars. We didn’t end up taking any more four-legged friends home, but they were handing out these nifty catnip packs…
So, into my last remaining empty flower pot it went:
If it grows, I’m not sure they’ll need any additional excitement in their lives, though. Ack. This one is squirrelly enough already.
Look at this beauty – with no filter. After we got the remnants of the week of rough weather that just terrorized Oklahoma, tonight’s sunset was welcomed as we crossed the river.
It was doubly welcomed because we’d just lasted through an hour-long kickball game in the rain. Here was the super cute umbrella contingent, being supermodels for various stages of maternity:
Love them. I’ll grab more action shots of the kickball squad when we can finally play a dry game. And, keep sending good thoughts to OK, please.
Maybe, just maybe, summer has arrived (fingers crossed). The weather was warm and muggy this weekend, just the way I like it, and we had dinner at one of the marinas on the Ohio River. Eating at Pirates Cove is as close to a Kenny Chesney song as you can get this far north and the view is always nice. Now, as nice as it is, it is no LBYC (which is farther south and deserves a post all for itself) – which we’ll get to soon this summer, I’m sure. Stay tuned.
While the rest of the world was watching the Derby, we were messing around and having a great time at my parents’ house…we totally forgot about the Derby. I thought that was a Sunday thing.
We got in some quality dog time and helped the fam bring home a lawn tractor they’d bought the night before, but couldn’t fit in the grocery-getter to haul home. So, we stepped in and delivered the shiny machine just in time for today’s monsoon, which should create lots and lots of grass for my little brother to mow this week (at least someone likes the rain!).
I also recently was educated on how the real race this week was the Kentucky Oaks, not the Kentucky Derby. Thanks, L’ville friends.
