Heeeeere she isssssss!

When your baby is teething, you learn to appreciate moments like this one when they're actually laughing and not crying/bitting/slobbering a river/fussing. :) [I forget how not fun teething is. Just come in already, you dang teeth!!]
She's learned how to squeal too. Oh my. So funny at times, but
not so appropriate at others - ie: sacrament meeting, the gym, etc.

"Who, me??"


Mommy loves you, baby girl. ...and your high pitched squeal.

Saturday, we drove to Memphis to go to the temple. After, we decided to go to the Memphis Zoo with our friends Jason & Jamie. (This zoo kicks the pants off Hogle Zoo. The animals were very active.)

My favorite. Love me some giraffes.

Ok, so I guess it was a tie. I like zebras too.

This was Mike's favorite part. The grizzly bears. Their "habitat" was really big and so cool! They were very active... Just before this picture, the one on the far left stood on the rocks and jumped on top of the middle one and started playing. So cute.

The polar bears.
...And Mike doing the 'Lion King'.

Harli says "Really Dad? You better not drop me!"
(Everyone loved her glasses and hat. She probably got as many ooh's and aah's as the animals!!)

Elephants. (Duh.)

You have to look close, but the monkey at the bottom was a mama with her baby. You can see the cute little baby's head poking out on the right. :)

I kind of get hungry for Panda Express every time I see a panda bear now. ha ha
Jamie & Jason
What is the zoo without a ride on Daddy's shoulders?
These guys were kind of creepy. All the big cats were for that matter. They were all pacing back and forth the whole time, staring at people. Scaaary!

The middle tiger was really pretty. He was orange and brown stripped.

You can see him a little better in this picture (he's on the left).
We had so much fun! I can't wait to go back again!

Yes, she is her Mother's daughter.

I laid Harli on the floor the other day (on her back), walked out of the room for a minute, and when I came back, I found her enjoying the TV. Oh boy. I think I've created a monster.

People. You have to try this. Really.

I bought asparagus the other day to eat with our Sunday dinner. We usually eat it with hollandaise sauce, but I usually buy the mix because I didn't know how to make it. When I was at the store, I forgot to buy the mix, and didn't really remember that until the asparagus was in the pot boiling last night... So I thought I'd look it up online to see if it was easy enough that I could make it homemade. Turns out it was. And it was 10,000,000,000,000 times better than the mix. (Sorry McCormick. You're out.) It was even good on the pork chops. Mmmmm. --Thank goodness for leftovers!
This is the sight that taught me how:

She called for heavy cream, which I didn't have, so I used half-and-half instead.
She also called for lime juice, which I didn't have, so I used lemon juice.

It still knocked my socks off. Mike liked it too. You'll have to try it.

(What a post... all for hollandaise sauce.)
