When the weather outside is frightful (-1)...

...it's a good day to go to the zoo.
Sam had a dream about bears last night - that's how excited he was to go today.

"Will the bears roar Mommy?"
"No, I don't think so."
"Well they won't say hello."
hmmm.. He's got me there.

I didn't take my good camera, but here are a few pictures from our 3 1/2 hour adventure. (I'm trying to be better about being in the moment with my kids rather than photographing every moment.)

A day at the zoo with some "stinky anmimals"
and a dolphin show and a bird show - $5 (the free library pass doesn't include parking)


A 25 minute train ride - $7


Lunch at Wendy's on the way home: $4.68

Kids so tired they eat with their eyes closed: Priceless.

  1. Looks like you all had a great time. The first and last pictures are my favorite. I love the "sleeping while eating a chicken nugget" look.

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the lower left corner pic of Julia looking at the dolphin.

    And, yes, as you know, I've witnessed sleep-eating in my children, too. Hey, maybe I eat in my sleep and that's what my problem is!!! ;)

Car campers and backpackers typically have a completely different set of camping gear, but when you travel with three kids, a husband, a dog...
