We spent the weekend on the road. First we went to the Discovery Place in Charlotte. It was a lot of fun and Ben got a kick out of all the exhibits. But the one he kept wanting to go back to was the bears. They had a Grizzly that ws huge and he just loved it!
Today we went to the zoo. They had a Boo-fest for Halloween. Kids got to play games, face-painting, dress up in their costumes and get some candy. Ben just loves being at the zoo. This was our second trip this year. Because of the weather, this one was a much more enjoyable trip than the last year. It was a beautiful day! Ben went through every exhibit, but he enjoyed the Sea Lions the most. They were in a playful mood and kept swimming right in front of him. The bears had already layed down for an afternoon nap. So there wasn't much to see there. But the whole place was abuzz with children dressed up and enjoying the day. I have attached a few pictures. From now on, whenever I look back at these pictures, I will count it as one of the most perfect days.

Yesterday was a day like any other. Went to work, came home, blah, blah, blah. But when I came home and went to Gammie's to pick up my lil' pumpkin. They were all outside. He saw me and ran towards me yelling, "Mama, Mama, I miss you." And then he jumped into my arms and gave me the most wonderfullest hug and a kiss. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. But nothing could compare to that feeling. Here was my son! He loves me. And God only knows how my heart is 'bout to burst with love for him. Thank you dear Lord for this gift you have allowed me. I know I don't deserve such a precious treasure. I will cherish him all my days and take the best of care of him. I promise to be his ever vigilant custodian. I am amazed.

I claim VICTORY for the home team! I believe we have defeated the potty training monster. Yeah! My lil' one has done so well with this. He has had a few mishaps, but for the most part...he is the smartest little boy in the world. Next week we move to nuclear science! (he should grasp this concept with no problem)
