Yesterday we had plans to go to the zoo with friends, so of course the day began at like six:something with "Whenarewegoingtothezoo?"
First up we had to make cleaners. Mmmmmm. Love that.
One of my favorite chores, to be sure.
Our package came in the mail - science kits! woohoo! We got that out and bounced some washer-shaped magnets around on pencils for a while. :) And then chased things around on the table. Love magnet play. Particularly north-to-north and south-to-south play.
Maddie finished up her beautiful mailbox.
My friend Slim from Plot 55 showed these a week or so ago, and I just had to have some - they're going right onto the shelf in the livingroom cabinet, so that I can easily leave love notes, presents, and treats in them for my babies from time to time. So excited about that!
Time to get ready!
The last few times we've been to the zoo we've had really exceptional experiences. Lots of surprising things from the animals, it's like everything was especially alive.
Yesterday the agenda was just Run! and Play!-- and that's exactly what our day was mostly like. We didn't see verra many animals, as it was dang cold and many animals can't be viewed when they're inside (which is quite alright with me, I wouldn't want to witness their misery, anyway).
But there was popcorn
and wagon rides
and snowball fights (super fun, that)
and a baby giraffe
and walk-talky play
and the playground
and carousel rides.
And then, of course, three hours with friends is never enough, so more play at their house was in order.
And, as always, we stayed until they kicked us out. :) (I'm teasing. They would never do so. Well - at least, they haven't yet!)
Life is sweet, isn't it?
See you tonight.
