Wonderful Weekend!!

First of all before I forget I want to say how truly amazing and sometimes fearless my daughter is. She did 2 things this weekend that I have never done and probably will never do. She held a rat and a mouse. My friend Debbie who we went and spent the weekend with has 5 children, 3 girls and 2 boys and the 2 youngest girls each have either a rat and a mouse or a mouse as a pet. Asha held them both and I just couldn't believe she did it. I thought she would get freaked out but it didn't bother her at all and she was really excited about them. She even fed the rat a carrot and got the biggest kick out of it.
We went to the zoo with my friend and her kids for the holiday weekend and had a fun time.
This is Asha, my friends son Caleb and a little girl named Gracie who came along with her mom. We just thought this was so cute. Caleb and his "girlfriends".

Asha loved being with Gracie and they had to hold eachothers hands. It was just so cute!!

Here's my girl petting a goat. I was suprised she got this close to one. She was in the petting area for the longest time. My friend Debbie took her in and I don't think she could get her to leave.

Asha kept trying to feed this poor goat and I think he was just too full to eat anymore.

When we got home from Debbie's on Monday it was pretty windy out so I decided to put Asha's new kite together and see if we could get it to fly. She is a natural at that too. She had that kite in the air pretty much all by herself and even figured out that if it started to fall if she stepped back or put her arm down it would cause tension and it would go back up all by herself. I just stepped back and took pictures and video taped her. She is just amazing!!
Asha and her Dora kite.
She just did so well. I am so impressed with her.

Look at that concentration. She had lots of fun but she takes things so seriously sometimes.
I also came up with a new hair style for her. It's the one she has in all the pictures but here's a closeup of it.

Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend. I know some states got hit with some bad weather so I hope everyone is ok.
Also thank you to everyone who has voted for my girl on the website.

She is brave! A rat AND a mouse? Did you pet the rat and mouse? Hope you are doing well with the work situation. You are in my prayers!
