Well today was supposed to be about doing chores like laundry, sweeping, moping, dusting, etc...
While getting the morning breakfast of homemade waffles underway Ray and I discussed going to the Zoo. The girls were supper excited about the idea so we put ourselves in fast mode and within 2 hours did the majority of our chores, packed snacks and drinks, and got all four of us ready for our trip to the Zoo.
Before going to the Zoo we decided to stop by and see Nana and Poppa. We had a good visit, but poor little Abby got a really big boo-boo. (pictures to come) She was really brave about it until she saw the blood then not even I was cool.... Ray of course being the calm one during the time of emergency was even having issues trying to put on a band-aid and it took Poppa coming to the rescue with medical gauze and tape to get the bleeding under control. After a snack of pretzels, milk, and watching Octonauts she was relaxed and calm enough for us to load back up and head to the Zoo for the day.
We had a ton of fun at the Zoo. The girls were allowed to custom order their lunch... Emma wanted cheese pizza and Abby wanted a hot-dog, good thing there were multiple food vendors selling these items. They pointed things out to us. We questioned them about the animals, colors, and shapes we were seeing. Both girls rode the carousal with their Dad and really enjoyed it. They had a blast feeding the giraffes and overall it was a wonderful trip to the Zoo. It started raining as we were leaving the Zoo and made it impossible for us to ride the train which saddened us all, because that is our favorite part of the trip to the Zoo.
