I'm really not sure what we would do for a special occasion, since a regular week for us (this week) has so far included a trip to Chuck E Cheese with good friend Miss Betsy, a baby shower/playgroup, and a trip to the National Zoo. Still in store for this week are a park playgroup and a trip to PopPop's. Are my boys spoiled? Heck, no! We just like to keep busy!
When I checked the ten day forcast a few days ago, today was the only day that rain wasn't called for, so after a few misses with other plans, we decided the best thing to do to take advantage of the clear skies would be to go to the zoo. Funny thing is that although we spent 3.5 hours there, we probably only spent 15 minutes or so actually looking at animals. The rest of the time was spent pretending to be saber tooth tigers, lions and prairie dogs, walking, climbing, playing in the tunnels, on the rocks and on the giant pizza. I was impressed with how close we were lucky enough to get to one of the giant pandas in the new Asia trail; Alexander was impressed with the rocks. On the way home, I was easily convinced to stop for frozen custard. Alexander asked for his custard in a bowl so that he wouldn't get all messy. HA!
Oh, and the odd picture of Jack is just so he doesn't feel left out. It's the view I had of him chewing on his strap while he was hanging out in the hip carrier.
