New Orleans!

New Orleans!!

Well it's been some time since writing on this. I need to move my "model" picture down the line so its not the first thing people see! So last week was very eventful. On monday, we drove to Grandma and Grandpa Zimmerman's house and visited for a couple of days, allowing Emma to get comfortable with the surroundings. Joe and I left Wednesday to Houston to catch a flight to New Orleans for a Dental Convention.

Taken at a "fancy" restaurant, after eating seafood...yum.

Joe researched in the summer and he was now presenting his findings there by making a huge poster and standing next to it for 2 hours :) His presentation was on Thursday and we were in town till Saturday morning.

It was so fun! Our hotel was in the French Quarter, like 2 blocks from Bourbon St...which I don't recommend going down after dark.

But it was cool to see the city and something new. There is a lot of history and culture there...not to mention lots of restaurants!! I sucked it up and ate at a couple of New Orleans' style sea food places. I ate Alligator sausage, crab cake and shrimp...blah! (the alligator was actually really good!) So it was a nice vacation for Joe and I.

Emma, on the same hand, had a great time with her grandparents and uncles. She loves to be outside so that's where she was everyday. She played with Rocky, their dog, fed him food and chased him around the backyard. I think he was probably a bit annoyed by her but he's old so I guess he didn't care. When we met Grandma in Houston, Emma was so relieved to see us! She wouldn't let go of Joe and I. So overall, it was an awesome trip and so glad we did it! I was a little worried that Emma would have a hard time without us but I guess she adapts pretty fast.

Big Long Day

Well Saturday was a very big day. We drove down town to the Healthy Child and Baby Expo at the Convention Center. Usually we wouldn't go to things like this but this day was different. I had volunteered to model maternity clothes from Destination Maternity for their fashion show. I got some free stuff and admission. It was kind of cool since I've never modeled before so it was kind of fun. We got there around 2:30 and I had to go and get dressed and made up for the show at 3:30. I think Joe and Emma walked around the expo and went outside and walked around too. I don't think he had the most fun but I'm sure glad that they both were there. Joe puts up alot for me...:) So the show came on and I modeled 2 outfits, as seen in the pictures. Joe was the photographer and he took 3 pictures so those are the best we got...Joe, I love ya, but more pics next time! And afterwards we walked around the Expo, getting free stuff from all the sponsers and finally, I was ready to go. We got to see the ground around the Tower of America, which is really pretty. We never went over there before so that was kind of nice. So it was good times this past Saturday.

I don't think you're supposed to be up there!

Whenever Emma is in a place where she shouldn't be, she tries to smile or laugh her way in. From the pictures, this is a perfect example of where she isn't allowed. She got up on my craft table and instead of coming down, she smiles and laughs and it's just no big deal...I wonder where she got that from?
