The zoo, packing and my 10 day panic

Yesterday we went to the zoo with my brother-in-law and my niece. My mother-in-law watched the boy so we could focus on letting all 3 girls run around and have fun. It was beyond hot but it was a good time. We packed sandwiches and lunchables from the grocery store as well as 2 coolers full of drinks and snacks. My BIL brought a friend and her son as well so there were 3 adults and 4 kids total. We ate and drank everything in those 2 coolers. It was painfully hot. On the way home all the girls fell asleep and Makayla started saying she didn't feel well. As soon as we got to my in-laws street Makayla threw up in my BIL's car. We parked in the driveway and I got her out of the car and inside for a bath while my BIL cleaned out his car. He didn't panic at all. He simply said " Did she just throw up in my car?" I think he was in shock but I was very happy with how he responded to the incident. She felt better after a bath and went to play on the swing set. I think it was a combination of the heat and all the drinks and food that put her over the edge. Poor baby.

I got some cute pics. I am only going to share 2 at the end of this post though. I am continuing to pack only now I have hit my 10 day panic. In 10 days I have to take the kids to my mom's and aunt's houses so they can watch them for 4 days while we get moved and settled. 10 days is NOT enough time. My to-do list is insane. It looks something like this:

1. Buy more packaging tape
2. Find more boxes
3. Finish packing EVERYTHING
4. get all garage sale stuff to aunt's house
5. clean of walls,etc.
6. Pack up kids for 4 days away
7. Sign apartment lease
8. Have utilities switched over

There is a lot more to the list but I will not bore you all. I am panicking. I have NO time and way too much to do so I probably will not be posting very often. I will give another update or 2 before we move I promise. I am just SO overwhelmed right now. Here are the 2 pics I am sharing.

The monkeys were right at the fence and then you could lean over so I got a pretty close picture. They seemed to be as fascinated with my kids as they were with them.

Till next time. Wish me luck. I am going to need it.

I wished I lived close by, I'd come help you out! I know you're overwhelmed but try not to panic too much, it will all work itself out! At least you had a bit of fun @ the zoo before the craziness really starts!

I hope you get everything done, I know you will. Just say this Bible verse to yourself..

I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me. Philippians 4:13.. I said that at work when I moved 6 pallets all by myself! Couple of boxes of cracked eggs later, I did! lol..

Sorry Kayla got sick,although I had to laugh. I could imagine Jeremi's face! lol

Glad ya had fun at the zoo!
