Every year we like to take a trip to the zoo…and every year we say that we will go in the spring. Usually we are not able to go until June and by then it is pretty hot here in the Deep South. After a day at the zoo in June, we walk away red-faced and wiped out from the heat. Most of the time, it also too hot for the animals in June and they are hiding in the shade. Then we say what we say every time we go to the zoo, “We really need to go to the zoo in the spring”.
When spring rolls around, we pull out our calendars and search for a day to go to the zoo. More often than not, our calendar is full in the spring. (As it stands right now, every weekend in April is all ready accounted for!) Once again, we end up going to the zoo in the heat.
Last night, we saw that we had a weekend open and we thought that a trip to the zoo should happen today. It was a great day to go…not too hot and not too cold…the animals were out and about… We took a picnic lunch and ate where, unfortunately, we could smell the animals. (yuck!) Then we
chased the baby walked all over the zoo and had a blast!
And because of our trip to the zoo, I now have plans in my head for the last few letters of the alphabet for Sunshine Girl’s school!
Anyway, it was a great day and we enjoyed being together as a family. We are often so busy that it was a good day to enjoy just having fun together.
