Linda was getting the girls going, and dressed and since I was still a little on the sweaty side she asked me to get the girls breakfast while she got ready. I was happy to do so, and in a little while the girls were done eating and I had cooled off, and we were ready to go to the zoo (I managed to get my shower in before we left).
The zoo was packed when we arrived, and since we're members it is much easier to just walk to the entry turn styles, and the girls wanted to get up on the tour bus. Getting on to the bus didn't take too long, and the ride seemed a bit slower than the previous rides we've been on. I guess with the slower ride it gave the driver/guide more time to provide more information, and we learned a few more things about the zoo, we hadn't known before. Linda was in charge of the camera, for the most part. I took 2 or 3 pictures and she took 20 or 30 (maybe more).
We had lunch at the zoo and even went on the sky ride (a round trip) across the zoo. The girls were very excited and had a great time, and by about 13:00 (1 pm) they were worn out. The day was over for them and we decided to head on back home. We thought about possibly coming back to the zoo, a little later tonight, but that didn't happen. Over all, it was a wonderful visit, and the parking lot, that was getting full when we arrived, was completely full when we left.
Tonight was also Taco Tuesday, and the girls reminded us of that several times. It was great watching them in the front room, playing. Stacy and Jackie decided it was time to have an egg carrying race, and they came up with the rules all on their own. We simply got a chance to watch. Stacy won most of the races, but not all of them, and I think that it might have surprised her a little that her little sister is beginning to catch up to her in some areas of ability.
Linda did an awesome job on the tacos, again, and we all enjoyed the evening. Jason spent most of the day resting, though he did take off to take care of some "banking" issues. He actually left before we did, and returned just a short while before we did. He seemed pretty well tuckered out when we got home, so I was quite happy to let him rest.
Tomorrow the girls leave for their five-day stay with their mother, and the house is going to seem very empty again. We have busy lives and the time will go by quickly, then they'll be back again. Below are some pictures from our most recent visit to Jason's new house and our trip to the zoo. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
