a friend from gracie's class called (his mommy) friday afternoon & asked if we had any plans & would like to enjoy the zoo...we were still in our pj's (lazy momma here). so off we went to enjoy the beautiful day!
the kiddos had a blast & got to do some extra super special things - like petting some special animals & feeding the rhino & watching the world's oldest hippo, donna, have a bite to eat.
i just love the amozonia portion of the zoo, so awesome! the kiddos love it too, with the animals all about.
checking out some creepy, crawlies..
feeding the rhino!
& of course, the obligatory pictures at the bat station & the giraffe statue.
ben has a bit of allergies & is constantly clearing his throat, making a hacking noise. buddy logan thought that was quite hilarious & decided to join in. they were laughing so hard over it, had me snorting. good times. thanks so much for inviting us to go to the zoo & the great time logan & samantha & dave!!
on the way home, i asked the kiddos what their favorite part was.
ben: "when we were making that throat noise & cracking up." boys...
miss gracie had her first haircut today (not including the one she had given herself).
during. she held on tight to that chair & didn't move an inch the entire time.
after. viola! still a beauty, but hopefully with a little bit more manageable hair...
we ate at grandy's before preschool, as we didn't have quite enough time to make it back home for a bite to eat. was full of funny knock knock jokes, mainly the interrupting cow & duck ones. i think they made many senior citizens' days in there (it was double discount day for seniors). ben did not have a haircut today, but woke up with it extra flippy for some reason...
happy wednesday! only a few more days until ben has his video game privileges reinstated (even after looking at the calender & counting with me, he knows it has been 7 days since he got in trouble. i am "tricking him" he says.)
everytime gracie tells a joke, it MUST start out that way - regardless of what is to follow.
last night while we were in bed & she got up to use the potty
"why did the dog cross the road? to go poop." giggle, giggle, giggle. oh, she cracks herself up! i think it was extra funny for her because she got to use a bathroom word in the bathroom..
