"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

The Zoo

It was about time that we headed back to the zoo! How we have missed you, zoo. It has been too long. We put our membership to good use a couple of weeks ago when our school district granted the kids the day off from school. The kids were so excited, especially because there was a baby elephant and this was the first time we'd get to see him. The little guy was asleep the whole time, so we never got to see him get up to walk around. Dang it! We ran into several friends from our neighborhood while we were there. Guess everyone had the same idea! The weather was perfect and we enjoyed a picnic lunch, rode the carousel, rode the train, saw a bunch of animals, played on the play ground, and got a new toy from the gift shop. What a great day! And in case you are wondering, yes this is Hailey's favorite shirt. It has a unicorn and it was given to her by Granana. She wants to wear it every day, so it gets washed a LOT!!
