Philadelphia Zoo

Grace, Evan and I on the carousel at the Zoo!

Leah and I in front of the Elephants!
The Zoo train that Evan loved!

Grace on the pony ride - She was in heaven! (Even if the horses were shaggy and not so cute!)
We obviously took the kids to the Zoo today and we all had a blast! We became members so we can now go back for free as many times as we want over the next year. We decided to join since it was only $18 more than if we just paid for one trip and we knew that we wouldn't get to see all of the animals in one day. I cannot wait to take the kids back again! Grace and Evan were excellent today. They were both walking around most of the time and listened to us, stayed right with us and held hands with each other or held onto the stroller the whole time. Evan only started riding in the stroller within the last half of an hour that we were there since he was tired. Maddie and Leah loved just being outside and did like looking at some of the animals. On our way home we stopped at Maggie Moos and got the kids ice cream as an extra treat for being so good and listening so well. I was a good girl and didn't have any. When we got home we cleaned up the yard a little bit, then took a walk while Matt was mowing. After he was finished we brought out the sliding boards and let the kids play and run around a little more. They are exhausted and were asleep as soon as their heads hit their pillows! I'm pretty tired myself but have some major cleaning to do before Matt's brothers come over tomorrow afternoon. Greg is coming over and is bringing his daughter Eleni - Grace is beyond excited to see her! Doug is also going to stop by for a little bit on his way home from work. It should be a good time!
