Made it to the Zoo
Well, we actually made it to the Zoo today... left the house a little later than I would have liked, but at least we got out the door. The weather was perfect for a day out, didn't have to dress up all that much. The best part was how nice and quiet it was, much easier to see all the animals... at least those ones that were out and about.
What amazed me the most was how well behaved I felt the boys were. Both Monkey, and Bug listened well, stayed close to the stroller, and didn't run off. By the time we left, they were getting a little tough to manage, but not as bad as it could have been. For their good behaviour, I let them each pick out a stuffed animal from the gift store. Monkey picked out a Flamingo, and Bug picked out a nice little Tiger. We had fun chasing the boys with the flamingo after dinner tonight.
Otherwise it was an uneventful day. I did enjoy not having to rush out the door for school, makes me almost think I should pull the boys out of pre-school now... but I do want them to finish the year. Here's some pics from our time at the zoo.
