Zoo Day

Yesterday I took Luke, Jack and Drew to the zoo. (Luke is ducking from camera view on this 'train' pic.) See Robin is out of town at a Women's conference and I needed something to distract them.
The night before at a very out-of-control-crying-for-mommy moment, I let Jack and Drew know that we were going to zoo next day. I explained to them what we will see. They started to get shoes and jackets on right then. Jack even opened the door to go outside. I had to tell them that the zoo was closed for the night.

When they woke up in the morning, they started right away heading out the door to the van. I had to tell them that the zoo wasn't open at 6:30 am and besides Luke was still asleep and they needed more than just diapers to wear.
We loaded up the van with 3 boys, snacks, packed lunch, water bottles, and red wagon. Jack and Drew insisted on opening their water bottle right away. I warned them that I couldn't stop on the interstate if they spilled it. I drove down to Denver. Drew of course dropped his water bottle and screaming ensued.

We made it okay, refilled his water bottle.

Long day to tell every little detail. basically for we were at zoo for 4 1/2 hours and I pulled boys in a wagon for 4 of those. Most of the time Luke climbed in too because he was too tired to walk.

How fun! My girls have Friday off and we hope to make it to the zoo if it doesn't rain on us. Hope Robin came back refreshed from her conference!

What a great day for you and the boys! Kids always love the zoo.
