So here's the real story of our trip to the zoo. Our day had a great start, but by the end of the afternoon, we were all a little overheated, bored (there was nothing to see so the kids were running wild), and cranky. The kids were all campaigning for sleepovers with their cousins (which was impossible that week), Kate lost a twenty dollar bill from her pocket that we never did find, and Claire kept running away and hiding because she was mad we couldn't go swimming at Aunt Jodi's house. We left the zoo with a lot of tired, grouchy kids!
Oh well, we gave it a good shot!
I had to laugh (okay, maybe it was funny a few days later :) when I asked Claire if she'd had fun.. She responded, "No. All day it was 'Claire do this. Claire do that. You can't go there! You can't go here!' It wore me out!"
Me too, Claire. Me too.
