how about you, you, you? You can come too, too, too! We're going to the zoo! We went to the zoo on Monday with the kids. It was a last minute decision which is always fun because then I don't have any expectations. Me? With expectations? Nooo.
We had a great visit! There are lots of Dr. Seuss sculptures around the zoo right now and they even had a scavenger hunt to go on, too. That helped keep the kids occupied while we went in search of various animals to solve the rhymes seemed to have been written by Seuss himself!
One great thing about this visit was this bear. He was swimming back and forth in the water, delighting our kids and others.
The leopard was doing the same sort of thing that day!
We made it to the farm to see the goats. It's fun to watch the kids every time we go because each time they are a little braver than the time before. They're still not completely sure they like the goats licking their fingers or coming at their shirts, but they certainly don't cry or scream like they used to!
We ended our time at the zoo visiting the fish. Both A and C love the dolphins. They wished we could go up top to watch them do tricks, but we couldn't, so they were content watching them do circles under the water. C said he wanted to be a dolphin so he could do somersaults just like they did. I told him maybe he could learn just like they do some day.
We ended our day at the park. Our kids love the park. C mastered the art of the monkey bars this year during preschool which was held at an elementary school. Not only did he master the monkey bars, but he also mastered the art of SKIPPING a bar. He's a quick learner, that one. He hadn't been back to school, which is walking distance from our house, in about a week and a half, so he was missing his daily monkey bar routine.
A also showed off her skills of hanging upside down by her knees.
The glider is a source of excitement when we go because you know, "You can only do the glider with an adult after school." J and I decided that someone must have gotten hurt so they can't use it during the school day.
We had a great summer day. And we're only one week in! I can't wait for the rest of summer...but I also CAN wait if you know what I mean!
What do you say about yourself? Well, I guess I'm a wife, mommy and teacher. I am blessed with a wonderful family-a husband and twin 10 year olds. I can't ask for much more than that. I love ice cream and any other dessert that has chocolate in it. Is it possible to have too much sugar in one day? I have been known to have ice cream for dinner, but don't tell my kids that! I've been blogging for about 7 years and love it. It is the perfect way to keep track of my family's happenings for me, J and the kids.
Husband, Daddy, Cook, Jungle Gym...let's see what else can I come up with? These are just of the few names J has in our family. He does everything and anything! I couldn't ask to have anyone other than him in my life. Married for 15 years, together since high school-we've been through a lot! He is a wonderful daddy to our twins and loves them so very much. They are utterly in awe of him as am I, every day.
A is our little peanut of a girl. She is full of spunk and personality. She is a little Mommy in her 10 year old self, always taking care and keeping track of her twin brother, C. Her favorite thing to do dance in her room with her door closed. She has to keep that brother out somehow! Her current favorite family game is Uno, which she is very good at! She's an artist in training, loves to ride her two-wheel bike and is a great helper around the house. She loves school, swimming, reading books, eating spaghetti and anything that's chocolate. Hmmm...who's daughter do you think she is?
C is our boy...a "boy-boy" if you know what I mean. At the current moment in his 10-year-old self, he plays catch with anyone around, with whatever ball is in season! He loves swimming, riding bikes and wrestling Daddy. He is our adventurous eater and will try anything we give him...though he doesn't always like it, but at least he tries! We love him so much and couldn't imagine life without him!
