would turn into such a handsome guppy guy.
i knew it.
i knew he'd be so cute
you'd wanna eat his face with a spoon.
and i was right :)
we decided to take a trip to the dallas zoo.
or maybe that was already planned
coincidentally on guppy's birthday.
we met my lovely surster there,
the radical photog.
who is such the bizness woman,
she can't even put her phone down
for a picture with her hussy sister.
we also had my parentals there to play with us.
or maybe to keep us in check.
sometimes we get out of line.
who graciously pushed my stroller
the. whole. day.
do you know how helpful that is?
i can't wait until all my kids can be trusted to walk
can i just say,
i'm not an animal pictureER taker.
i hate taking pictures of the animals unless they're doing cartwheels
you can google animals if you wanna see what we saw.
this is the only picture of any animal that i took.
gay, i know.
that's just how i am.
get over it.
what i do like to do is...
(sing the cover girl song here)
why are the bronze statues in zoos
always more popular than the animals?
i feel like this blog post sucks.
i'm not feelin it today.
i noticed some interesting things being at the zooey mczooster.
1. lady bird was there.
at least your feathers are pretty and bright.
and there's a creepy man staring at you on the far right.
hey that rhymes.
not only that, but i saw all my owc sisters.
hikin up their skinny pink leggies.
why do i love pictures of my kids from the back?
i seriously take like a million of these pictures.
i spare you by not posting them all.
i guess it makes me feel all artsy.
like i'm a photographer
but i'm not.
but i am.
if you haven't noticed,
i'm a very observant person.
and while at the zoo.
that the zoo is perverted.
whoever made the zoo?
has a perverted mind.
take for example this trash can.
is it boobs?
is it staring at me?
do u stick ur hands in?
at the same time?
do u get anything in return?
what do u feel in there?
do u hold ur own hands once u stick them in?
all i know is i get a perverted vibe.
or how bout this fancy sign.
you have to read it in a
seriously. am i right or am i right?
that's so perverted!!
i just have perversion on the brain.
it has been 2 months.
let's move on...
i noticed that we got a lot of cousin love that day.
we've missed our cousins for quite some time.
and they grew up.
but the love was all the same.
like we never even left.
some of us wish we hadn't come back.
not miah though.
he's not super totally uncomfortable in this picture.
he hasn't had enough of his cousin lauren loving him.
he didn't try running away from her at every zoo spot
or ignoring her cries, "miiiiiiiaaaaaahhhh!!!"
he loves being smothered.
just look at his face.
it says it all.
was that pawpaw and izey penny guy
are pretty much best pals.
we stripped off all our clothes
and ran butt nEked through the water falls.
nooo. not really.
but that would have been some birthday to remember.
instead we just went to the waterfalls and cooled off
after our long zoo day.
and were everyone else's kids nude?
but that's how i roll
cuz i'm trashy like that
and when we have fun,
we go all out.
he likes to stay clothed and wet.
like the wet t-shirt contests.
except way more precious
and way less sexy.
he stayed at this water hole almost the entire time.
he was so proud of himself for finding a wood chip.
aaaand, that was his birthday present.
see how easy he is to please?
and cheap too.
random side note:
wouldn't it be nice
to just birth all your kids at once?
in a big egg?
wait. okay nevermind.
*visual of kate gosselin's after belly pops in head*
things got pretty crazy
after we stayed there for a bit.
i realized guppy is actually a large human-ified spider.
he's cute and sweet from afar.
but the minute you turn your back,
take a look at that third frame.
deee-zam. that's scary.
and then after?
he says, "what? i dunno what you're talkin about."
next thing i know, i turn around and
penny's gone all sports illustrated on me.
gooooood night irene.
that is hot.
look at that clavicle.
his positioning is impeccable.
almost like he learned it from watching someone else do it.
like maybe a parental figure.
i'm just sayin.
or maybe it was just naptime that was causing all this craziness.
we did one last picture of all the cousins
(minus lucas. boo.)
in a big 'ole nesty. mcnester
and then called it a day.
we called the zoo a day.
then we went home,
and woke up to eat cake!!
guppy was excited.
he loved his birthday song.
it took a moment for him to be comfortable with his cake.
but not long after,
he went all buck wild with it.
in true lowe fashion.
own that cake guppy lyn.
it's all you.
and what's a lowe birthday
without our traditional family photo?!
that may or may not have been the same outfit i wore the day before.
i'm just sayin.
if you saw me? then close your eyes.
i love my sweet family :)
happy one year to you.
i love you through and through.
your eyes make me smile,
and every once in a while
i try to eat you with a spoon
cuz i'm a mom that acts like a goon.
love you guppy lyn.
