And although they may "walk in my shoes" in some instances, I'm grateful to know that I will be able comfort them and help them. Just like my Savior does for me.

In this video, Mary-Gail was pretending she was sad and was hiding her face; Rebecca was trying to make her happy. I think her efforts were successful.
In this video, the girls are playing with Mary-Gail's "tickah" (her blanket). They were so slap silly the entire drive!

Anytime Lovey says he needs to go to Cabela's, I tell him, "Not without us!" Rebecca & Mary-Gail love Cabela's almost as much as Tony does. For us, going to Cabela's is so much better than visiting the zoo: there are all different sizes and types of animals, they all look "happy" (except for the antelope that has 2 lions attacking her), they don't respond when Rebecca & Mary-Gail are screaming in excitement, you can view them close-up, and they give the girls a chance to see what all different animals look like. Plus, I don't feel guilty when I pay money to see sad, pitiful animals living in pitiful conditions like I do when we visit the zoo.
So we visited Cabela's Saturday morning. Since we're potty training - Mary-Gail is doing GREAT, by the way (more on that later) - we immediately b-lined it for the restrooms. Success! Then the girls & I ditched Tony (or maybe he ditched us?) and we went to look @ the fishes. Cabela's has this awesome fish tunnel with amazingly huge tanks and the biggest fishes. Mary-Gail was so ecstatic when she saw an orange fish - her favorite color is orange. Can a 2 1/2 yr old decide what her favorite color is already? Well, she has!
We moved onto the Safari exhibit, where the above mentioned antelope was. Rebecca said to me, "It's OK Mommy. They're sweeping [sleeping]. Don't get nervous." I had to chuckle because that's what I said to Rebecca many months ago on our first visit to Cabela's. Then off to the Arctic exhibit with Rebecca & Mary-Gail screaming (in excitement, of course), "Come here Mommy! Come! Look at that! Look at that! Oh my goodness!" The Cabela shoppers flashed smiles upon smiles at my girls' exclamations. I know, they're so cute!
And then we visited the Mountain exhibit where the girls run WILD. Deer, porcupines, raccoons, bears, snakes, mountain lions, moose, elk, horses...lots of animals. Rebecca & Mary-Gail correctly identified each animal (with the exception of Elk) and made sounds to go along with the animals (there were some silly sounds for the deers and raccoons). And there were, of course, a lot more "Come here Mommy! Look at that! Oh my goodness!" And of course there were more smiles.
This video was from a previous trip to Cabela's (March 2, 2009). The girls were just barely @ their 2-yr old adjusted age.
