Mommy and the kids time...

Mark is out of town for the weekend, so we are living it up! Well of course we wish he was here with us, but we are making the best of it, a visit to the dog park, a nap, and an evening trip to the zoo, followed by some fast food for dinner - a pregnant woman wants what she wants and the kids didn't put up a fight! We were going to eat at the zoo but the restaurants closed earlier than expected - so fast food it was - the kids had their first Happy Meals, (that they can remember), I do remember giving them one on a road trip from Portland at one point. Anyhow, they enjoyed it for sure and know that Happy Meals are a treat!

Had a fantastic trip to the zoo, the animals are always busy in the evenings, when feeding time is happening. We lucked out and the Bonobo's were seriously putting on a show for us, serious acrobatics happening - the kids and I LOVED it! We felt kind of special too because there weren't many people around. The Bonobos are supposed to be the closest link to humans and we could see why - the brother was tormenting the little sister by chasing her and taking her toy away (a piece of burlap that she wore as a cape). I didn't get any pictures of this chaos it was happening so fast! We also saw the Orangutans putting on quite the show - swinging on ropes and rolling thru the grass, the kids loved that too! Lucky day at the zoo! This was Sarah's first trip to the zoo without a stroller and she was a super trooper, she probably walked a couple miles, she was zonked tonight though. She is really prepping to be a big sister, knowing that the stroller is for babies, she didn't want to bring it. Yay!

Here is Sarah saying, "Thank you Bonobos for the show!" This Bonobo came right up the glass, to Sarah but I wasn't fast enough to get the picture!
