Comin' to ya' from the In-Law's livingroom......

Okay, I've finally been able to connect to the internet here! I had some technical difficulties happen that prevented me from posting like I wanted to. Long story, come the simplest things take the longest to figure out/fix? *sigh*

And moving right along..........

Our little detour to the zoo (on the way up to mom-in-law's house) turned out to be loads of fun. The weather was delightfully cool compared to the triple-digit temps we had just come from. I think that helped us enjoy our explorations rather than focus on how hot and miserable we were! The entire zoo/aquarium was impressive. From the foliage that surrounded us everywhere we went, to the up close and personal exhibits that invited you to touch the animals - it was amazing. There was even a play area for him to enjoy with climbing nets and slides. I was concerned that most of the day would be spent walking, pointing and trying to keep our active 5 yo entertained. Instead, he was actively engaged for most of the day and we were all able to enjoy ourselves.
We got rained out in the end, but that was just fine with us since we were wrapping things up anyway. The rain was a blessing to my way of thinkin'. We had a physical, tangible reason to give the Bubs as to why we had to leave. It's not easy to argue when your being drenched in cold rain! Hubby made it especially fun for him by running with him to the car. Bubs laughed the whole way! I, of course, was the sensible one and used my handy umbrella while walking sedately behind. Howevah, I'm still tryin' to figure out how I ended up getting drenched and my guys barely got wet.......The Hubs would say "cause they're cool like that"!

Here are some pics of our adventures so far~
