We spent our last morning in Iowa at a fabulous little zoo with J’s family (before we drove back to Chicago and straight to the doctor with a sick Evy again…..sigh…more soon). Annie and her girls, our family, and Bibi Rho (Jorie was at home helping the little patient Silas recover from having his tonsils out!) headed to the zoo together. It was a gorgeous day that made anything else but being outside completely ludicrous if not insane. We packed ourselves a picnic lunch, loaded up the strollers, and peeled off layers as we enjoyed this little zoo just the right size for our broad of small watoto. Evy loved the animals and in her usual fearless feats even entered one cage while I was taking a picture (I was neglecting my motherly duties in lieu of taking pictures…shocking I know!). Anni and Claire waited the extra 10 minutes to assure a last seat on the train which was oh-so-worth-it people! And we all loved our time together!
yep, we got ’em ready!
smart phon-ing it up for check-in deals…shameful!
