As I mentioned in my last post, I recently attended an event put on by Hallmark. Aside from the many other great things about the event, we also got to take home a pretty spectacular swag bag, and one of the items inside was Hallmark's Interactive Christopher Story Buddy and Storybook. In the past three days since the event, Ava has played with him nonstop. I'm pretty sure I could recite the book by heart!

Not to brag, but last week I received an email, inviting me to participate in a breakfast event that Hallmark was putting on in Austin this morning. Being a big fan of greeting cards, snail mail and all things expressing one's feelings, I jumped at the chance, taking the morning off for a "doctor appointment" (blog event doesn't suggest quite the same urgency...) and heading over to the gorgeous Mansion at Judge's Hill.

In case you're not already on picture and animal overload from my post yesterday about our Sea World San Antonio trip, today I'm going to share with you pics from this weekend, when we headed down South to see David's parents, and go to the Houston Zoo. It was a surprisingly fun trip, except that I was SICK. Even so, I rallied and spent a family day at the zoo, soaking up being a newly confirmed member of the family :D If you haven't been to the Houston Zoo and live near enough to make a day of it, I highly recommend the trip! We've been to a lot of zoos in Ava's two years, and this one was by far the nicest. I was extremely impressed by the facility, as well as the range of animals and experiences. We'll definitely be going back! Check out some highlights: Gorgeous scenery EVERYWHERE!

I've hinted at a little trip of ours in previous posts, but only now am I far enough out from wedding chaos and whatnot to get to sit down and tell y'all about our mini honeymoon and trip to San Antonio. First off, let me tell you how excited I was when GM contacted me after my car accident. They reached out and let me know that they, too, knew how devastating it could be to feel unsafe in your vehicle after a major accident, and that they'd like to offer me the chance to drive something in their super safe fleet of cars/trucks/SUV's, if I'd like. And, to make sure that I got the complete driving experience, they threw in a trip to San Antonio to stay and visit Sea World with Ava, who just thought the entire experience was divine!
Ready to par-tay!
