a camel.

we had such a beautiful weekend.... full of family time, swimming, visiting the zoo and loving on miss josie!  we spent quite a bit of time in the car traveling, but it was great to sit back (and let the hubster do the driving - thanks daddy-o!) and relax and smile at the little things josie would say from the backseat.  
how was your 3 day weekend?

josie and i TOTALLY rode a camel at the zoo.  we rocked it and she didn't even bat an eyelash getting on!  she was in the front of the hump, and i was in the back.  such an excellent memory made! 
i asked mitch, the camel master, where these camels were from (hoping he'd give me an exciting answer... someplace FAR, FAR away in a desert or something....) 
ummmm... yeah... these champs were from Oklahoma. 
not exactly the answer i was looking for mitch.  but thanks. your tour rocked!
i'll have you know... no jcrew maxi dress is slowing this mama down!  i hiked it up (appropriately so as not to scare poor mitch) and even left with some camel fur and other type of mud/spit possibly on my dress as well.  
** dear oxi-clean.... you da man! **
