a few weekends ago ibelles bff, Grace, came to dallas with her mom and dad (Erin and Chris). We met up at the Dallas Zoo and had such a fun time! This was the first meeting of I and G .. I can already see these two are going to be such great friends! {Hopefully as good of friends as their moms are!} They had so much fun together and even held hands!! I just loved seeing them meet for the first time!

Ibelle loves her daddy like Crazy.
I'm serious. & how could she not? he is a fantastic dad!
it is sort of like she has him wrapped-around-her-finger.
although Dyer would admittedly deny.
Anyways. She does all things cute, including kisses!!!!!
{and. ibelle had her 6 monthish pics taken @ the
Dallas Arboretum by the
wonderfully talented, Courtney
with Anthologie Images. she does great
things, including taking
pictures, being a Baylor alum and mission
work. Go here: to see D + Ibelle.}

There is this series airing on Discovery: Life.

It is just-about the most amazing thing. (aside from my mini-other-half of course).

For instance, monarch butterflies migrate from Canada to Mexico!
If you have a minute, go here: butterflies.

I didn't realize the show was airing until 2 weeks ago .. since then I've been trying to DVR all the old episodes. There is one thing about it, I hate watching animals suffer, so those parts I am not quit into, otherwise it is awesome!

The show has the most amazing photography! These people stake out an area and film for hours and hours; they capture the neatest things!! I can't imagine that job, how awesome!

{in other tv news: Deadliest Catch and GLEE!! start this week. if I could get Ibelle to stay asleep in the evenings.}

sweetest easter gift there ever was.
thanks dh1 for the beautiful flowers & a beautiful daughter.
{sadly the flowers are gone now. ibelle grabbed a-handful-of-leaves ..which caused the the vase to go tumbling. i was holding her and trying to put away groceries in the fridge when it happened. luckily i saved the vase before it hit the floor. the flowers; not so much saved.}
