Well a trip to the zoo was how we spent our Tuesday! Rodney took off a few weeks ago so we could go during the week and we had a wonderful time. It was a beautiful day to be there and the kids were so excited.
The kids informed us last night at bed time that we forgot to go back and see the butterflies. But I think we saw everything else. Marah loved the monkeys and Joshua 's favorite part was the snakes. The big pythons reminded us of the scene from Harry Potter.
Rodney and I enjoyed watching the kids and we had just as much fun! It's a good thing we went now instead of a few months from now. I really would have been tired from all the walking. But we made it. Of course at the end, we let the kids play in the splash pad area. They were so worn out by that time. Marah didn't last very long - she was so pooped, then came Joshua. So we headed home and all went to Rodney's softball game.
In taking time out from our normal days to spend time together as a family, it really makes you appreciate what the Lord has given us. We feel so blessed to have each other and we love spending time with daddy during the weekdays!
