Friday B and I went to the zoo before his nap.
The zoo is about three miles from our house, and we have a zoo pass, 
so it's great to just get out for a bit and walk around. 
Bennett loves the monkeys and the elephants the best.
chillin on the hippo:
We did lots of reading this weekend,
mostly of Hop on Pop. 
Bennett is obsessed.
Yesterday I went to my friend Kira's baby shower.
It was nice and relaxing to just sit outside and have grown up conversations 
without having to chase a toddler around.
(although we talked mostly about our kids anyways)

Afterwards I met Chris and B on Mississippi where we grabbed Thai and stocked up on green beans for Chris to roast. 

 This weekend we also made progress on the house...
new address numbers:
 and the hallway is now white:

Chris' goal this week is to finish the fireplace and I'm going to work on painting the kitchen.
Hopefully we get it all done!

    I took Blake to the zoo for the first time a couple weeks ago and he was afraid of that monkey! That's awesome that you guys are so close to the zoo! We want to come see your new place!
