Stay at Home Mom Update

1:00 Start grouting tile on steps
4:20 End grouting tile on steps
(Side Note: The Grout Lobby never mentions how long it takes to wipe the tiles clean. Yeah, the grouting is great, float float float. But then you have to fill bucket after bucket of clean water while you painstakingly wipe excess grout from everything but the nooks and crannies. Definitely a deal breaker.)

Potawotami Zoo

My grandparents came to visit me from Buffalo. We went to the Potawotami Zoo:

Buffalo peeping toms, peeping at the Buffalo.

Grandma let me push my own perambulator.

We posed for photos outside the alligator hut.

And inside the alligator hut.

We checked out some prairie dog tail.

I rode the train with Grandpa.

And Grandma gave me a lot of kisses.

In the immortal words of Ice Cube, overall I'd say it was a good day.
