We Spent Our Day at the National Zoo!!!

Hey Guys!!!

Since we live in Maryland about 30 minutes away from Washington DC, we decided to venture off to the National Zoo. We had perfect fall weather today, just simply beautiful, highs around 75 and cloudy. The commute wasn’t to fun as we experience crazy traffic in our area, but well worth it. I have come to the conclusion that it is best to go to the zoo in the spring or fall. During the summer the animals are hiding from the intense heat and the winter would not be fun at all. We made it a family affair and brought Camdyn’s dad and uncle (my brother) with us.

Here are a few pictures from our day!!! Enjoy!!!

Okay so how cool are these elephants as they wait for lunch to be served, I think we got a smile from Mr. 🐘 😁

We got up close and personal with a crocodile 🐊

Seen an anaconda 😖🐍

And of course stopped by to see the mighty lion

But the highlight for me was when we found out our zoo welcomed a baby gorilla back in April, his name is Moke and he’s superrrrrrrr cute!!!

What a great day!!! Days spent with the ones you love are always great, but having them while exploring the world is extra special. We are now all exhausted after conquering the great hill you must defeat in order to leave the zoo. Take a look at Camdyn who didn’t make it 5 minutes in the car before he was out.

What are some thing you do with your loved ones on the weekend??

Getting to Know YOURSELF

Okay so I have been doing a lot of thinking (starting to realize I have to be careful with that) about my journey, and I have decided that before I jump right into the vision I had for our blog I need to spend some time with myself. However, instead of spending that time alone I am going to share the journey with you all.

So I have been exploring me, it’s been about two months of actual application of tools but for the last year I’ve been feeling like there was a part of me I just was not connecting to. During this time I’ve read plenty of articles, watched videos, forced myself to take leaps, and even tried to convince myself that I was in tune with my inner being; but I could still feel that void. I had some personal things happen that got me to the point of “okay what the heck is it about me that I’m not understanding”. Through the journey of getting that answer I’ve learned that it was MY FLAWS, yes can you believe it. All this time of me knowing I was flawed and saying “everyone’s flawed”, I was missing the bigger picture. A simple understanding that being in tuned with your flaws is key to controlling your energy, making powerful moves, loving others and over all being a better you. I started to mentally challenge myself: I took a month fast from SnapChat and Instagram (was vital to my process), spent time talking to myself (coo-coo…. lol), figured out what my priorities are, took a break on hanging out (now if you know me you know I LOVEEEE MY FRIENDS), forced myself to be the catalyst for change in my household, read an abundance of information, tried to resort my life, and most importantly I have learn to appreciate everything I  have been blessed with. You would never imagine how AMAZING it is to better understand yourself until you make the commitment to spend that time with “you”. There’s no story in this world about how someone else did it, how they changed, made tons of money, became a socialite, fell in love… blah blah blah, that would bring you the joy like investing in your inner self will.

Okay, enough about me! If you do want me to blog more about that journey just let me know and I would be glad too (I love to talk).

Today I wanted to share this video, it is simply amazing and I think everyone who has goals, desires, ambition and all those good words should watch this 15 times.

This snippet is so powerful and will change your way of being. Take a look and let me know your thoughts, how it has moved you, or what you got form it.

 

The Journey Begins

Okay!!!!! Super excited about this journey.

First I want to say, thanks for joining us. Whether you’re hear for just a moment or become a part of our family we thank you!!

This blog is about myself (Danielle or Ma now-a-days) and my son Camdyn AKA Bino or Bascuber (that was his dad’s idea). Being a pair has been literally the best thing that has ever happen to both of us (I speak for him, because I think he would agree). It has been nothing short of amazing and definitely a major learning process. With myself learning more than him, because he was able to just be while I had to become a new person. The love is pure, the stories are real, and the future is unwritten. As we document our journey please feel free to connect, ask, suggest, share, like, follow and subscribe. You know all those cool things!
