just another day at the zoo

We woke up this morning and hubs suggested we go to the zoo. Usually it's me dragging him and the kids to places, so when he said that, I couldn't say yes fast enough. We were out of the door in less than an hour. A new record for us.

Overall it was a nice trip, but exhausting for the parents. We haven't invested in a double stroller yet so we had to carry Will the whole time. Hubs used the Bjorn carrier for a while, but it got too hot.... Anyway, we both got a serious arm workout by taking turns carrying our big baby boy. I think it's time to buy a new stroller, though, if we are going to be out more in the spring and summer.

Anna was in a non-walking kind of mood today so it was annoying, but I think she had fun seeing the animals. The turtles fascinated her. The highlight of the trip for me was definitely those fresh donuts we bought on the way out. They were warm and yummy. Too bad I had to share them with Anna.

A comparison: Same location, last May.

  1. Well, after a week in the frigid north, there was no way I was going to waste this warm weather. Already blew half the Saturday away installing new toilets. But yes, Will is a handful, or should I say armful? While he feels like a big soft bag of marshmallows, he weighs like several sacks of potatoes!

  2. haha, I always catch myself being selfish about my food these days. Especially the sweets. It was so much easier to sneak a treat for myself before a toddler lived with me! :) Good thing they are cute, right?

    1. I have a feeling that Will is going to be even worse. Already he lets out angry fusses when he sees us eating food. And when I warm up bottles for him, I can't let him see me or else he will scream the entire time while the bottles are being warmed.
