We just bought the year pass for the Zoo and Aquarium and we are so excited. One yearly fee and you go as many times as you want to either place- what a deal!
Last weekend we had the most beautiful weather so we decided before Mardi Gras and Super bowl madness begins, we would enjoy the day at the zoo. We had a wonderful time and the kids loved it!! The babies are at great ages where they both are engaged and excited to see the animals.
Charlie's favorite: Alligator
Reese's favorite: Pig, and Elephant
Mommy and Daddy's favorite: Giraffe's
Before the Zoo we had a BIG accident with Reese. Long story but Charlie ended up pushing Reese out the car (while parked in our driveway) but she fell straight on her face. Craig ran inside screaming for me, scolded Charlie, and we tended to poor Reese. We were debating and debating on going to ER (you just never know with the head) but after we read Web MD (which said watch for vomiting and lethargic signs) we thought all was going to be fine We were both nervous all day, especially when she napped but Thank the Lord all was and is ok!
Friday night there was "date night" at our gym. This is where you drop the kids to childcare at the gym (they have games, pizza, etc) and parents have 3-4 hours for date night. We used this time to catch up on some errands without kiddos and go to a nice dinner together!
Sunday we went to church (which is right near the lakefront) so we decided to take our workout clothes and double stroller and go on a run after church on the lakefront. From there we went to the playground for the day and then went home to watch football. It was a perfect day!
Could not have asked for a better weekend for this little family!
