Our Week While Brent Is In India

Brent is in India on business this week so we headed to Jackson, TN to spend a few days with my parents. I had a TON of bows to make so my parents offered to help out so I could complete my orders. We got to Jackson around dinnertime on Monday night and stayed through Wednesday morning.

My mom headed back with us on Wednesday so she could be with me as I took the girls to their yearly checkups (see previous post). My dad joined us that night. My parents will stay until Brent gets back on Saturday. Today we decided to take the girls to the Memphis Zoo. This was the first time my parents had been to the zoo since I was a kid. We got there about 10:45 a.m. and met up with my friend Kris and her daughter Faith. It was the perfect day to go. The weather was beautiful!
The zoo was decorated for Zoo Boo--so cute!

I just had to take this picture! Look at the monkeys hanging out in this kiddie pool! Too funny!
Ally was in a posing mood today!
