We had so much fun today. The Tennessee Virtual Academy folks had a meet and greet at the zoo. We woke up this morning and apparently it had stormed overnight but we slept right through it. The forecast still called for rain but the chances were slim and we headed out just hoping and praying we wouldn't get drenched! Thankfully we only got drizzled on some and it was kinda fun to play in the rain! Plus, the zoo was pretty empty except for the K12 kids. It was kinda a perfect day for the zoo!
It's been years since we went to the zoo and I'm sure Asa doesn't remember it. Cade thought he was too big for the zoo. Gracie was super excited! I liked the new Teton Trek that has a huge log building, the wolf and bear exhibit and lots of trees. Gracie loved the snake house and had to go in twice! Asa watched the elephants and liked the train. Cade was too big for it all but did get great pleasure in splashing us with puddles he jumped in! It was kinda fun!
K12 paid for the kids to get into the zoo and a feeding stick for the Birds and Bee exhibit. The birds were wonderful until they swooped down near me. I may have squealed and took my stick away as the first bird flew at me!
I ran out of storage on my iPhone and couldn't take more pics. I have 600 pics and videos saved. What can I do with them now? I want to keep them just not clogging up my phone. Any techy folks out there?
I enjoyed meeting some K12 teachers and other parents. There is another fun day at the end of the month locally and I'm more excited about that!
