The baby elephants! These were both born within the past 6 months. Baby elephants are covered in fur and very cute. Also they weigh over 300 lbs at birth. Ouch.
Perfect zoo day = happy family.
Costume #1 was a mermaid costume. I saw this one day and thought it would be perfect because it didn't have a hat/head part. Eva typically doesn't want to wear a hat for very long. I also thought a mermaid would be pretty girly without being a princess (since I figure we have many years ahead of us to be a princess). She likes fish. She likes the Little Mermaid. Done. Well, I took it home, got this cute photo of her in it and about 2 minutes later the tulle already ripped. I don't expect a costume to be designed to last forever but it should hold up through a night of trick or treating at least. So I returned it to the store.
So, yes, you could definitely say that I like to over think small decisions. All for a holiday that I don't even care that much about. It's okay if you judge me, I kind of judge myself. Whatever. In the end I only spend $13 and we now have 2 fun costumes to play in (remember, I took back the mermaid). Plus Eva loves the tiger costume and even seems to be okay wearing the adorable head part - although my back up is a leopard print bow. Like most mamas, I am really excited for her to wear her costume. We are planning to go to Boo at the Zoo this Friday so she can make her "tiger" debut. Grrrr :)

Eva's favorite part was Joyce's cat, Little Bit. Eva LOVES Little Bit. Little Bit does not feel the same way about Eva. But when she would be tolerant, Eva go to pet her. Too bad I'm allergic to cats so Eva will never have one.

Whew! What a weekend. Today is actually a holiday for lots of people, but we are going back to normal. Have a great week!
