Anyway, so tomorrow I head back to school. Being that today was my last day of summer vacation, we decided to go to the zoo. We have season passes and actually haven't gone at all this summer because we've either been out of town or its been too stinkin' hot. We headed out the door @ 9 am and were looking forward to an awesome day. Kids were in a good mood, we were in good moods, we were armed with sunscreen and bug spray (and plenty of snacks!)...all was well.
We had a lot of fun at the zoo until we got to the World of Reptiles. This is when Hannah decided she was tired of riding (she had walked a bit at first, then got in the stroller to ride awhile). Well, when she saw things that interested her, she wanted to go check them out, of course. One item on interest was a large statue of a komodo dragon that was in front of the World Of Reptiles. Her interest in the komodo dragon statue wasn't a big deal, but the fact that she had to climb a few steps (with no railing) was a bigger deal. She is quite stubborn, and decided she was going to master these stairs with no help from mommy. Chris and Andrew were ready to go see the orangutans, but Hannah was more interested in these steps. Instead of letting her practice for awhile, I decided we needed to move on. MY BAD.
We got in the car and headed home. Hannah promptly fell asleep and Andrew was playing happily in the backseat asking his 4,286 "why" questions. We stopped at Burger King because Andrew was saying he was so hungry. All was well, we were almost home...Hannah was napping, Andrew was going to nap when we got home. It was not over. Not at all, my friends.
