JoJo's Visit

My mom came to Memphis for a long weekend.  We loved spending time with her.  On Friday we went to lunch at Bahama Breeze and then spent the afternoon bathing suit shopping.  My whole family is going to the Dominican Republic in May and my mom needed a new suit so now she's set.
On Saturday, we went to an Easter egg hunt for 1 to 2 year olds.  Willa wasn't exactly the master egg gatherer.  We ended up with three eggs.
The eggs were filled with tootsie rolls and sweet tarts ... not exactly Willa friendly candy ... so she didn't even get to eat the candy she worked so hard to collect.
There was also a little carnival and petting zoo.
Aren't these chicks and ducks so cute?
Willa looks so old in this picture to me.  She is really studying the animal in that cage.
This little hairy piglet was Willa's favorite.
We also hit up a kid consignment sale, spent a lazy Sunday going to church and relaxing at home, and visited the Pink Palace Museum.  I thought it was funny that Willa growled at the dinosaurs at the museum.  I didn't teach her to do that.  It was just instinct.  Thanks for coming JoJo.  Please come back soon!

Willa looks so much more toddler than baby to me.
And those ducks are incredible. I have never seen anything like it!

I am the living witness that those chicks and ducklings were vibrantly colored and incredibly soft--thanx to Matt, Lindsay, and Willa for making me feel so welcome
