Put US In the Zoo...

So Caleb's favorite book to read aloud by himself right now is "Put Me In The Zoo". Well, Monday we took what has become our annual Labor Day weekend trip to the National Zoo and put ourselves in the zoo for a few hours. We had a great time and it was a terrific day to go. We got to see the pandas up close, which we never have before, and got to see an elephant being given a bath. The Orangatuns were also wandering around on the "o-line". We met our good friends, the R's, there. They also have three little boys. Sadly, one of them tossed his cookies around lunch time (and I don't mean his Chips Ahoys!), so they had to leave early, but it was fun to see them for a little while anyway!

We called this year's visit a success because
1. We didn't lose any children this year (thank goodness!)
2. We saw cool animals up close
3. None of our kids threw up (sorry Gabriel!)
4. The weather was great and we went early and beat the crowds
5. Caleb actually admitted he had a good time WHILE we were at the zoo!

Seriously, it was fun and we look forward to heading back next year!
