Clara's Big Weekend

Clara's weekend got off to a bang when she received this envelope (see the return address?!):
This is definitely going in her baby book.
 (For more information on the White House Greetings Office, click here.)

This exciting mail was followed up with an exciting meal. Trying bananas for the first time...
 She loved them!
Clara also visited the Jackson Zoo for the first time today. Here we are under a mister, which made me go ahhhhh but Clara wasn't too sure!
Watching the tigers with Daddy:
Because we could get her so close to the animals, Clara's clear favorite was the petting zoo. She especially liked this gross miniature (?!) pot-bellied pig, probably because it resembles our dog Otis (just kidding... on the square).
Here is our girl intently watching the chickens, sheep, goats, pigs and ducks in the petting zoo:
We'll probably just rest tomorrow :)

What a great piece of mail!! I had no idea you could receive a letter from the President for the birth of your baby. Very cool!!!
I haven't been to the zoo in ages. Maybe when my 'babies' are here this summer we will go to the zoo.

The zoo looks like fun! I love that last photo of Clara! Too cute!

Jan@Thanks for today. said...

That's a neat keepsake! I didn't know you could get that done, either! I wish we'd had blogs when I had my kids...I could have some great posts about them. I only wrote little bits and pieces in their baby books. Now it's ancient history. You will have fun with this blog;-)

I can't wait to take our baby to the zoo for the first time! Going up to the National Zoo in the summer is such a nightmare, I want to wait until she's old enough to remember it so I get credit :)

What a cutie pie!

I am so excited to get a White House card for Henry - thanks for the link! Both my husband and parents are Republicans, so it will be fun to get a special keepsake that will annoy them. :)
