It had been over 3 months since Dave and I had taken time off. We even packed work with us to do while down for thanskgiving. We were burning out and could see the effect on the kids as well. So we surprised them with a zoo trip.
The penguin exhibit was the favorite.
Lucy would've jumped right in if we let her. She just kept talking about petting and hugging all the animals. Or would ask us to grab it and put it on her lap. We knew she would lose her mind, she is obsessed with animals. Our future zookeeper.
We only did about half the zoo in 5 hours, im so glad we bought a year pass to keep going. We never knew if you go twice it pays for itself! So we were sold and knew this will be a monthly thing.
After the zoo we decided to go to the hill across that over looks downtown. It was a place that dave and I had taken a picture 10 years before on our first date. It was fun to show the kids, that through 10 years of ups and downs their dad and I still love each other.
Lucy was so beyond tired, poor kid missed nap time.
Our self timer fail. I underestimated the height of the wall to jump over. ha!
