Have I ever mentioned how much Rauly adores animals? This girl would spend all day at the zoo if we let her and she's much more interested in playing with her ponies and stuffed animals then she is in playing with her baby dolls. We went to Silver Springs on Saturday to see AMERICA perform live in concert, but instead of sitting down to hear the performance, I got to tag along with her as she ran to see the giraffes, bears, donkeys, ostriches, goats, ect....you name it - she touched it! And if she for some reason couldn't touch it (for instance, the bears)....there was some SERIOUS drama! It is soooooo funny to hear her sweet words to the animals that could knock her over and eat her for dinner! She sweetly told the goats and donkeys "come here baby - good girl....you're so sweet"...then she'd follow up her sweet words with some adorable giggles as the animals laid under her and let them pet her. When we go bike riding, she spends the majority of her time with her eyes glued to the sky as she looks for sea gulls or pelicans or geese...she's not even afraid of bugs - she'll try to catch them for me if we find one in our house! Jenny (her aunt) and I decided on Saturday that her future career definitely needs to be doing something with the animal kingdom!! :)
Here are some random pics of this past weekend - we were in Valdosta with the Hicks family yesterday and today (thanks again guys for a wonderful visit!!)....the other pics are from Silver Springs. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!!!
