A perfect day at the zoo...

Our class spent the day at the Oakland Zoo today! 
It turned out to be a perfect field trip.

I know I say this EVERY time I do a post about my class...but the parents of my kids are incredible.
I thought they were awesome when I first started teaching and well now....we know each other very well and they just mean so much to me. 
I'm so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this time in their lives. 
They always make me feel so special and never stop thanking me and making me feel so appreciated.
It's really great.

The Oakland Zoo was so beautiful! It is so relaxing and pleasant to walk through. With each animal you feel like you are in their real habitats. It's incredible!

:) I didn't even realize the bear was doing that in the picture till I got home. Cute!

The giraffes were my favorite!! 

Julian came with us!! Isn't he sweet?! He really enjoyed the kids and got a little taste of what my everyday with them is like. Never a dull moment..would pretty much sum it up!!

Most importantly, the kids had a blast. :) 

They were totally into the maps!! :) 

All of us!! :) 

What a great day filled with great memories. 
These are the days when it really hits me how many amazing things God has given me. 
This group of 13 sweeties are my life. 
I am just humbled to have the opportunity to make a difference in their lives. 
God is good.

Our favorite little guy!

Today we celebrated Bryce's 2nd birthday with his family and friends!
Bryce is Julian and I's favorite little man. He is just the sweetest little boy you will ever meet!

Bryce's parents are J and I's closest friends as a couple! 
I grew up with Daniel (Bryce's Dad) and Julian grew up with Renee (Bryce's Mom) and we (as couples) have grown very close over the past year and a half since moving to CA. 
So naturally their little boy has us wrapped around his finger!! :)
Here are some pictures and a couple of videos from his party today!

When we got to the house today Renee had taught him say "Welcome to my party!"
It was adorable!


He is still learning the whole coloring thing! :)

Bryce and his friends!

He LOVES basketball!


He was so sweet when he was opening. As soon as he would see what it was he would respond with a "GASP" and then "TANKSHU" (his version of "thank you") :)

I love this video!!! :) 
Oh yes, and his party was an airplane theme. Renee is so creative, everything was decorated so cute!!

It was a good day!! Best birthday party I have attended in a while!!

Seriously though, how cute is he??!! :) Melts my heart!
