For some reason, we thought it would be a good idea to go to the zoo Sunday after church. Here is why it was not a good idea: #1 Nap time for the kids. They should have slept in the car, they did not. #2 Nap time for sleep deprived mothers of infants. #3 Lunch on the road. Chicken nuggets and carseats are not a good combination. #4 It was 85 degrees that day. #5 Nursing babies on different schedules. We spent a lot of time at the sand box. #6 Nika is three, Benton and Soren are 2 1/2, Christian is one, and the babies are both under two months.
We saw Polar bears, warty pigs, and a peacock. And a tiger from very far away. In that last picture (the one taken by an attractive Latin man) we are smiling because we survived... two hours at the zoo!
