Friday Night's Family "Date" Night!

So what did you do last night? Really? That sounds like a lot fun.
We went to see Jack Hanna !!!
Nana, Memaw, Brandon, and the Lanford clan all saw a wonderful little animal show by Jack Hanna in Fayetteville.
It was a little too long for Cailyn, but Carys enjoyed the animals. (And the snacks from the concession stand!)

Carys & I cheesin' as we wait for the show to start...
We were only 8 rows back, so we got a great view.
He was extremely personable and very nice when we talked with him.

There were a lot of animals, but I won't bore you with them all.
Here are our favorites:

Armadillo!

Cheetah - oh my, it was gorgeous!
Flamingos! Cailyn...starting to get bored.
Nana took her out of the auditorium for most of the show.
Hee. Memaw gave Carys a Cow Tail...you know, the candy?!?!
Well, Carys was afraid to eat it - she thought it was a real cow's tail. Silly girl. She quickly got over it once I told her I was going to eat it if she didn't. Man, those are my favorite!And my baby, ahem, big girl.
She looks so grown when I pull her hair back.


Today, we went to my Papa's annual fly-in in St. Pauls.
Nikki - I totally spaced & didn't think about telling you we'd be so close until we drive by Cypress...and I didn't have your number. Chad's my witness - I felt terrible!

Anyway - there are no pictures of the fly-in because I left the camera in the van and didn't want to go get it...but we ate, played, talked & had a lot of fun. And the girls got to see a lot of airplanes. It's been a great weekend - so far! ;)

Skye can Cailyn's face be any prettier??? Looks like a great time with the animals. I can totally tell why Carys had a good time.

Never had a cow's tail,but they do sell them my way!!

Matt wanted to see Jack Hanna...He'll be jealous that you guys went. That is so weird that you had the fly-in Sat...when I picked Matt up from the airport Friday, for some reason, I mentioned the annual fly-in you guys have (even though I thought it was held @ the wonderful Gray's Creek Airport-ha!ha!) I would have loved to have seen you guys...maybe next year! At least you thought about me! :)

What fun we had! Cai and I know allll the details of the restrooms, the lobby and the parking lot. Ask if you want to know! And Nikki, let me know next time and I'll hook you up on Jack Hanna.
