Abby didn't have school today so we decided to visit the zoo. It was a great day to be outside and the zoo wasn't overcrowded. The best part was how well the girls behaved. No major meltdowns and very little whining. I couldn't have asked for a better day. I forgot to pack lunch and we ended up eating zoo food. As we were eating, both girls asked me if they could get a Nutella sandwich. I couldn't blame them for asking. The food was mediocre at best. I think the favorite part of the day for the girls was the petting zoo where they got to comb goats and sheep and sit on a tractor or playing in a water fountain. Abby saw the water fountain and asked if she could play in it. The way she asked, I knew she was expecting me to say no, but when I said yes, her face lit up in disbelief and excitement! The girls got a little wet, but we were heading out of the zoo anyway and it made them so happy. Mckenzie dozed off in the car and she got in a pretty good nap as I didn't plan our exit from the zoo very well and we ended up in rush hour traffic. Abby was a great helper when we got home. She gave Mckenzie a bath, washing her hair and all. Now, if I could just get her to do the dishes and laundry... 008 Abby 010 mckenzie b&w 015 mckenzie 019 goose
