It's a Zoo Out There

Today I took the girls and met some friends at Como Zoo for an outing. It was really a beautiful day for that kind of thing - not too hot, but nice and sunny. It went pretty well, over all, considering it was my first big outing like this with both of them.

Some things I learned from this excursion:
  • I love my BOB Duallie stroller. It totally rocks. And it really does fit through doors.
  • You can never have too many snacks with you.
  • It's darn near impossible to use a public restroom with a toddler and an infant (and a diaper bag, etc.). I had to pee from 10AM until 2PM.
  • Zoos geared towards children still somehow manage to be built in a way that totally blocks them from seeing squat from the stroller. They have to be picked up. What the heck??
  • Watching Kate's little hand squeeze under the sunshade to pat Lizzy on the head when she fussed was about the sweetest thing I've ever seen.
Nice to be back in the week after our busy weekend. Cul-de-sac party on Friday night. Meigan came to visit with her adorable girls on Saturday AM. Friends for dinner that night. Pete's Grandmother's 90th birthday party on Sunday. Ugh. Never thought I'd reach a point in my life where I look forward to weekdays as a chance to "relax".

Speaking of which, I'm off to bed. G'night.

I agree re: the whole zoo for kids but not if they are in the stroller thing. I ran into the same thing... Urgh.
