Life is hectic these days (whose life ISN’T, right?) and we rarely have a day when we are home for more than a couple of hours. Monday-Wednesday-Friday are work and school days, Tuesday is gymnastics and errands, then the busy weekends… Thursdays are usually the only day during the week when the girls and I can stay home. They are PRECIOUS. I LOVE MY THURSDAYS. Thursdays are when I catch up on house chores from the first three days of the work week, Maggie and Audrey hang out in their pajamas and play with Barbies and blocks and crayons, and we get to just relax.
But you know… sometimes staying home and putting away the 8 loads of clean laundry that have been sitting upstairs since Sunday night is lame. Especially when it’s sunny and almost 60 degrees outside. So this week, we went to the zoo instead.
It was Audrey’s first zoo trip. She was… not quite sure what to think, honestly. But she sure liked pointing at the animals.
The highlight of the day? THE BABY GORILLA, nursing on his mama about two feet in front of the glass. It was amazing.
Then we shared some Dippin’ Dots.
This Thursday sure beat any Folding Laundry Thursday. DUH.
