We all played hooky from our responsibilities on Wednesday and spent the day together as a family. First thing in the morning, we went to the Zoo. Unfortunately, we were unaware that it was a free day at the zoo, so it was crazy crowded, but we had fun anyway. The major highlights was a close and active tiger; Sara wanted to "ride it". Seeing the giraffes from the top; Sara's
special request was to see "Sara's own 'raffe". And finally, riding the carousel; Laura's special request to ride her favorite animal, the zebra.
The rest of the day we spent hunting for a swingset. The kids really need a place to play outside other than the woods (which may be coming down soon anyways). And sharing the one swing is getting to be a difficult proposition. We have it narrowed down to this one or this one, but I think due to safety reasons - yes, still a somewhat paranoid mommy am I - that I am leaning. Which would you pick?
On Tuesday the girls spent the day playing outside. Lily and Laura wanted to bird watch from our deck and were nice enough to let Sara join in on the fun. The had explored the woods
collecting seeds and then settled in to watch the birds. They are SOOO CUTE!
