US+2sDay Spooks, Parades and Picnics

What a busy but fun weekend we had! On Friday we joined Mom's Rotary group at the zoo for the "spooktacular". We toured the zoo and trick or treated. We got a lot of candy. Saturday we packed up the van for a trip downtown to support the local children's hospital. Dad's Rotary group built a choo choo train out of a wagon. We marched in the parade with the wagon!  After church on Sunday Dad set up the bounce house in the back yard. Mom made us a picnic lunch and Grandma (aka the common tater) joined us. By the time it was over we were pooped! Nap time was never so good!

US+2sDay Back to the Zoo

We went to the Zoo and took a ride on the Choo Choo Train

The Giraffe was hungry so we fed him

The Zoo was fun but it wore us out

US+2sDay Zoo Visit

After being rained out of our zoo plans a few weeks ago we finally made the trip. We started off with a ride on the train around the zoo grounds.

After our train ride we walked the grounds. The Giraffe's were a lot of fun. We got up close and personal with them as they were eating.


Next we took a ride on the carousel. We were having fun for about 30 sec's before Mr. H decided that he did not like it. Mr H let us know in a loud manner his displeasure. In true twin fashion Princess chimed in so we had crying kids for the greater part of the ride.

We all agreed that the monkey's were the most fun. They were really putting on a show and the kids could not take their eyes off of them. It looks like the yearly pass to the zoo will be in our future budget plans!
