Thursday's Zoo Trip

On Thursday, the girls and I ventured to Brookfield Zoo together. The girls behaved pretty good, even despite no morning nap for Rowena. I was hoping she'd fall asleep on the way there, but no such luck. We oddly didn't see a ton of animals. This was our trip: Elephants, Tropic World, Splash Pad outside the Penguin House (but we didn't go in the Penguin House), Bear Grotto (SOOOO cool), Hippos, Kangaroos, then time for push-ups (ice cream) and then a ride on the carousel.

Delaney LOVED the splash pad by the Penguin House. She was SOAKED!
Katie...was usually seen drinking the family lemonade. It was very hot and she was super thirsty. She didn't get too wet at the splash pad.
Excited and a bit hesitant for the splash pad!
They love the carousel!
Passed out within SECONDS of being in the car!

All in all, it was a good day. I only had to talk to the older girls twice about behavior. We'll be going again soon. Just wonder if we should try a later in the day approach. And, next time, we'll be inviting Poppy. This was a spur of the moment trip, and I didn't think to call him.
