Checking out the Sea lions before leaving the zoo. She has to check them out when she gets there and before she leaves.
In front of the Giraffe's
Glenne said she was really into this elephant statue and kept playing on it.
After the zoo and her nap she stayed overnight at Meme and Granddad's since she was going to the Children's museum with Meme today. Glenne and I took advantage and went to the movies last night. She has had a full summer so far.

Rod Stewart came to Houston. I did not expect to go to the concert. Tickets were way more then I would even DREAM about spending. Glenne is addicted to craigslist, we are also selling baby stuff of Hailey's on craigslist too. Glenne saw someone post an ad for 4 tickets for covered reserved seating for way less then the ticket cost. The pavillion is like that place in camden for you philly people,covered seating then lawn seating for the rest. The plan was to sit in the seats and take pics then find someone with lawn seats and trade. Well...the seats were great.....Hailey was excited to see ROD!! She kept asking, "where is rod?" Of course we took pictures. He can still put on such a show. He still can move,still kick those soccer balls around and can still sing just as well as he did in the begining. The HAIR still just sticks up when he puts his hands thru it!!! LOVE ROD!!!!! If we were closer I would have been making Glenne battle for a soccer ball for Hailey. The tour was "the hits" but he did not sing my favorite song of his of all time. "do you think I'm sexy?" I have not heard him sing that since the first time I saw him in concert probably 10 yrs ago. We planned on taking Hailey cause we figured her first concert this would be a good one. Of course we have pictures!
Hailey and Mommy waiting.................
The opening act "the kin" from australia
Hailey and Daddy.not sure what they were checking out......but love the looks on the faces!
We had great people all around us. We had 2 women who were trying to teach Hailey the peace sign at one point. There was a couple directly behind us that just loved her and were trying to teach her sway her arms in the air. The couple next to them..not behind us....were watching Hailey and thought she was having such a great time and loved the fact that her first concert was Rod Stewart! As we were walking and walking out of the concert so many people stopped us and just said hi to Hailey. She got a pin that blinks colors on the way out from an older couple. EVERYONE loved that her first concert was Rod Stewart. I have loved ROD since I was little, I do not know if it was before 5yrs old but I know of stories growing up of me singing "if you want my body and you think i'm sexy come on sugar tell me so, if you really need me just reach out and touch me.." I am going to be 36 yr old on 7/31 and I saw ROD...just 1 wk shy of that birthday....almost 31yrs..probably more of being a fan!!! I just wish that we could have gotten one of those soccer balls that he kicked out. I just love being able to see him perform. He was awesome as usual!!!
I have lots of other pics.......I will save those!
**non hailey subject* There was a little boy (looked maybe 2 or just a little older then 2 there with his mom and someone else along with I'm guessing almost 1 yr old little sister), he had a suit on with the vest inside it. Glenne and I both noticed him wandering into the water all by himself, but did not notice anyone keeping an eye out on him. He swims out to the middle where the umbrella water fall is goes under and swims back before one of these 2 women he is with comes to the edge of the water to check on him. It took at least 5 mins or more for him to do that!! No one that was responsible for him was keeping an eye out. There are lifeguards there..but that does not mean that you can not keep an eye on your child. I noticed a few times that he would almost roll where his face would be under water. It bothered us both but did not have the gumption to say anything. I would have run if he was in trouble to save him though!! At one point we saw him with an adult and heard him talking and he did not talk as well as Hailey. He still used a pacifier too. Glenne thought he was at least Hailey's age or older. He was cutie too!! Hailey was really confused by what he had in his mouth when she saw him with his pacifier ...she does not know what they are since she never used one. It just really upset us seeing that little boy with no attention. I just had to write about that**
Now back to the regulary scheduled Hailey programing.........Picture time!
Building a tower..Hailey's version of a castle for the Princess
Watching everyone swimming
Ok....as I said...the camera battery died. These last 2 shots were at the aquarium from my cell phone. I did not get any of the sharks but I will next time with the real camera. They had sharks, big fish,baracuda, and a big sea turtle. Here is the picture of the sea turtle swimming above us and swimming away.
