Return to the Zoo: Double the Action, Double the Van Damage

Guys, I know we’ve already been to the zoo and so this is like a One Summer At Home rerun, but keep in mind, this is my real life,  I’m running out of ideas here, and also, we have a zoo membership.

But, rest assured, we did some previously un-seen things at the zoo today, including: buying a penny for 51¢ and feeding the budgies.

But first, we started the day with Hazy’s new hobby: practicing to be the new One Man Band:

Thank you once again, Misong, for the drum.

Then we went back to the zoo, but we tried some new things, like whining about having to see “animals” and wanting to go to the playground. We also tested our long jumps.

Kangaroos can jump 20 feet; George can jump 3.

Hazy can jump 4 feet and convince everyone it's 6.

Found someone worse at hide & seek than George:

Nice try, dummy.

Got a penny for the bargain price of 51¢:

Plus labor.

And, we fed the budgies. I don’t know what took us so long to do this, but it’s awesome.

I make them carry their own backpacks with water and a snack, because it's two less things for me to carry and also, cuteness.

I always try to get one shot of all of us on each outing for posterity, even when I’m sweaty and gross.

Their new thing is both getting as close to the camera as possible, like they're David Paterson in an SNL sketch.

Then we hustled home for lunch and nap time. (George is this little bunny from Robin Hood.)

I'm waiting, Georgie. Always.

I’d love to say Hazy and I did some deeply enriching craft project while George napped, but we watched half of Thumbelina (one Thumbelina down from Hazy) and then she watched My Little Pony while I napped.

When Matty got home, he brought our first cucumber in from our garden! We all celebrated, as if we each helped grow it, while in reality, it was 90% Matty and 10% Hazy.

We* did it! *2/3 of we

We’re going to the beach tomorrow. What’s your vote among Wingaersheek, Crane, and Good Harbour?

  1. I second Wingaersheek. Also if Crane’s with Cindy is on a Friday let me know (20% SAHM if you only count week/work days)
