Mostly this will be a "pictures" blog.
Mr Creepy Gorilla - the first animal we saw today
Frances riding on Desse's shoulders looking at Mr. Creepy Gorilla
Desse showing Frances some birds
Frances was not certain about riding on the chimps shoulders
Frankie and Marguerite outside the chimp cage - he just would NOT leave the hat on his head
duck! (No, I didn't see the sign that said what kind)
I love flamingoes (real ones anyway lol) and I couldn't resist this "train" of them
Frances and Desse riding a turtle (tortoise?)
The giraffe sees his shadow!
After the zoo, we went to eat lunch at the Flying Saucer. There the kiddos gave me three little carved stone frogs (one lapis, one brown & tan stone, one green soapstone). Frances handed me the lapis one, Desse gave me the little brown one and Rob gave Marguerite the green one -- which she promptly tried to eat! lol
Afterwards, I came home and took a much needed nap. I know, I'm getting old! That's what happens to pregnant women with three little ones under two.
On another note, I talked to Steven last night and told him I was pregnant. It's hard to get in touch with him when he lives in Houston. He was quite shocked, but in good spirits. Nothing like finding out your Mom is pregnant again I guess. lol He was the last of the kids that I needed to tell.
