We made it a true day trip (leave in the morning, come home at night) which proved to be very hard on Chunky Monkey (he cried over an hour of the trip home) and it was just Joanna and the kids. Tim couldn't take off work at that late notice. Overall it was a really fun day and although the zoo was painfully crowded (and keeping tabs on my kids didn't lend itself to many pictures) it was a fun day. Thanks to the rest of my family for keeping up with Andrew . . . felt like I didn't see him much of the day because the double stroller couldn't keep up with the boys the way some of the other adults could.
Thanks to Shannon for this picture . . . I completely missed Andrew doing this. :-(
I just love this picture of my niece Cherith. . . . too cute.
The icing on the cake was that I got to see my BFF for a little bit. Living several hours apart doesn't lend itself to that much anymore. :-( BUT, I'll take the time I can get and catching up for the little bit she was there was just what I needed.
