For the past two weeks I've been practically holed up in my house with my family, with the exception of a couple trips out for groceries and diapers. My mom spent several days here cleaning, cooking, and helping take care of the kids. Then Chad's mom visited for a few days to do the same. Well, yesterday, I decided to re-join the realm of the living, and Chad's mom took us all to the Phoenix Zoo. I wasn't too keen on leaving my comfortable house, and worried about being out with Bree and two-week-old Mason all day. But I am so glad I did! Bree had a great time (even if she was utterly exausted from lack of a nap), Mason slept through most of it, and I really enjoyed myself!
