The day was overcast and a nice, comfortable temperature. It worked out to be a fantastic day to spend outside.
We got to see so many exciting animals: elephants, lots of birds, fish, monkeys, lions, bears, giraffes, etc. I loved watching the boys take it all in.
We took a little break to eat lunch. I knew our time would be slim after lunch, since they would be due for a nap.
We headed out to find the Children’s Zoo with the petting zoo. The petting zoo (goats) ended up being the BEST exhibit for the twins. Nathan was ecstatic to run around and pet/brush goats. It was a perfect replay of the Livestock Show for him.
When we left the zoo, we headed straight to Mamaw’s house. Naps didn’t really happen in the car as I had hoped. They maybe got about 15 minutes of sleep. Anyway, we usually meet up with Mamaw and some other friends on Wednesday nights to eat before church. (More on that in a future post) We had a little time to kill when we arrived at Mamaw’s, so we spent some time in her garden. Mamaw let the boys pick a squash, some black-eyed peas, and some tomatoes.
We didn’t make it to church tonight. Supper took too long, and the boys were losing control after such a long day and practically no nap. We came home and rushed to the bath. Some of us rushed a little faster than others. In fact, one of us couldn’t wait to get his clothes off before he leaped in. Luckily, I got his shoes off before his feet slid in behind him. :-) Oh, Logan, you are so silly!
There are no words for how much fun the boys are at this age. They are learning so much and are just intrigued with the smallest things. I am in awe of them and their silly ways! What a great, full, exhausting day!!
