#1 The fridge: Basically it needs to be cleaned out! It's on "the list".
#2 Your closet: This is my half. It's pretty cramped in there! With a pile of shoes to accent the beauty.
#3 The sink: With my devoted husband doing dishes first thing in the morning while I blog! I'm blessed.
#4 Favorite shoes: I bought these for the wedding and while they make my feet feel like they will fall off, they are so pretty! As shown here by Em.
#5 Favorite Room: Well, Emery is now able to get out of his crib (since coming back from Dallas; ug) so we took the crib mattress out and are in the process of getting him used to his new bed. Notice some blankets next to it for ME to lay by him in an effort to keep him laying in it, instead of getting up and going to play. Long story short, Emery's room is my fave, because he naps and sleeps there, which gives me a break every now and again. [And in connection with that, I love my bedroom because thats where I nap!]
#6 Laundry Pile: Definety laundry day.
#8 The toilet: Its needing a clean to. Good thing "Saturday is a special day..."!
#9 Dream Vacation: Right now my sister-in-law and her kids are in France and its making me really want to go! Plus with Michelin being a French company there is an actual chance I might get to go sometime in the near future! So Paris would be my dream vacation right now.
#10 What my child is doing right now: Watching Elmo! On the little DVD player we got for the Dallas trip.
I now tag Jenny L., Mary R., Emily H., Laura P., & Jan M. Have fun! :)

Emery really liked climbing on the little fences
Content to sit and climb on the benches
What time Emery spent in his stroller looked like this; looking to see if his friends were still coming behind us.
This baby panda came right up to the glass where Emery was and did a little roll before walking off again.
There was also an inside play area with squishy climbing blocks and some cartoons too. I guess Emery is almost 3 ft tall. Wow!
Before we left I paid $2 for a little train ride. I think Emery really liked it! And I didn't feel the least bit bad for paying for a 3 minute ride since we got into the zoo for free! (Thanks Jan!)
Waiting for the train to start
I love my little Em!

Just lounging by the pool with aunt Annemarie
Emery LOVED swimming the hotel pool. It was half inside and half outside. And with the highs in the 90's and 100's, the pool water was as warm as a bath. Even I took a dip (not pictured).
Emery is trying on Annemarie's sandals
Candy Bar at the reception (yum!)

So today, for the second week in a a row, we had a famous visitor to the Atlanta ward. Do you recognize him? If you watch CNN Headline News in the evenings you might have caught his show. It's mostly about politics and his take on them. I've watched it every now and again and it's pretty entertaining. He's got a big personality and lots of strong opinions! But today he was just a visitor (he is a member) from NY. He did make a few comments in sunday school, but they were moderate and he wasn't trying to show off, which was nice. I was going to try and shake his hand, since I didn't get to shake Gladys' hand but alas he left a few minutes before class ended. Oh well, I'll just have to wait for the next famous visitor...
*Oh, on another note, we also had a special visitor in Relief Society. A COCKROACH! Ick. Needless to say there was a lot of gasps and screams while a few ladies tried to catch it and it flew about. No injuries were reported. Even the bug survived due to one woman's plea for humane treatment.*

Fun times for the kids
