Hubs took the day off on Friday so we could spend some family time at the zoo. It seems as though the last several times we've gone, we've been rushed for one reason or another...I wanted a leisurely day at the zoo.
It takes us nearly an hour to get to said zoo; (note to self: next time, plug in the DVD player so the kids won't bug me to death by asking 'are we there yet?') so when we venture that direction, we really should make it count.
We spent 5 hours at the zoo!! We saw it all and the kids were very happy campers. (and my feet hurt...must get the kids to build up their muscles so they can pull ME in the wagon...ok, hubs did the wagon-pulling, but still)
Ella: Mom, you know what my favorite animal was?
Me: No, which one?
Ella: I loved the pandas. What was your favorite?
Me: I really liked the five giraffes.
Ella: Oh, they were my favorite, too. Evan, what was your favorite?
Evan: My favorite was the penguins.
Ella: Oh, they were my favorite, too. Daddy, what was your favorite?
Daddy: I liked the snakes.
Ella: OH! They were my favorite, too!!
I think we need to explain what 'favorite' really means...
