Happy Birthday Lauren! And ouchies.  
I walked around the Milwaukee Zoo yesterday. Again, one of those things that most people would take for granted but was a huge deal for me and 3 months ago I wouldn't have even thought about doing it because I wouldn't have been able to. The first couple of hours were fine - I'd sit on the occasional bench and rest, but mostly it was no big deal. By the time we got to the last hour and were heading out, I was definitely aching and tired. Today I am in serious pain and limping, so Vicodin will be my friend shortly, most likely along with a nap as I'm still exhausted, despite going to bed very early last night. However, I am really proud of myself, so there. The zoo was fun overall and all 3 kids enjoyed themselves, plus I got to take Lauren on a pony ride which she thought was the BEST THING EVER. Am clearly ruling at this aunt business. I haven't downloaded the photos off my camera yet but there may be some later.

My sister and I ran to the store while the kids were down for their naps and I got some interesting cheeses, as Wisconsin really does have the good crackcheese. Smoked gouda, Amish butter cheese and Amish monterey jack... I haven't tried any of them yet, hopefully they'll be good. Then we had the party and Lauren loved all of her gifts and cake. So today she is 4 - amazing how quickly they grow.

Time for drugs now, wheeeee.

I know what you are talking about with massive apprication for walking. My third child injured me on delivery, so I was on bedrest after having her for quite a while. It feels like heaven to go back out again, even when it starts to hurt after a short time.
ohhhh... I'm missing Wis. cheese now. I haven't been up there in a while.

Good for you! :D I really miss the Milwaukee Zoo. I went to the Vilas Zoo today, which is really nice especially for the free factor, but there isn't nearly as much to see and walk around as there is in Milwaukee.

Mmm, crack cheese.

Oh yes--we have the best cheese ever up here. *beams* Went into favorite fruit and cheese shop today and it was all I could do not to buy up my whole family's weight in cheese...love the cheese.
