I'm drawing a blank...


While the weather on Friday wasn't PERfect for the zoo, it was a good day. No stress, no time-frame, and no agenda. LOVED it. The big dinosaur exhibit opens on April 4th, and the dinosaurs we glimpsed through the trees and at the fountain were COOL. We will definitely be heading back to check out the full collection of animatronic, growling creatures.


I took tons of great pictures of the 3 stooges. Very cute, happy, etc. But my MAIN focus at this visit wasn't capturing their quirky smiles...




...Nor was it to take pictures of ideas for Justin and I to build for an art/natural science unit on animal habitats. (We are TOTALLY making a papier mache animal exhibit...)
And though I was glad to get another of my yearly "3 kids walking towards a tunnel" pictures...
(I only had to threaten Justin with a wildly embarrassing singing Mom at the zoo to make him hold hands with his little sister)...

It was the little things at the zoo that caught my attention!
While the kids were laughing at the animals, I was giddy over jonquils and daffodils.

While the polar bear paced, I was busy counting the crocuses...

But nothing compares to the effects of 5 hours of walking, running and climbing at the zoo.

(Yes, those are sleds in my van. What of it?)

FYI: If you are at the zoo, and find a lovely, black stuffed dog? Please turn it in! Corinne lost her big brother's doggy and many 6 year old tears were shed over this tragedy!
