Put me in the zoo

Does anyone remember that book? It was Robert Lopshire, I believe. My youngest would read it OVER and OVER again. I loved it.
That was our surprise trip today. Took the chickens to the zoo. The Tulsa Zoo. We've never been there before. It was great fun. And if I didn't walk five miles, I'll eat my reeboks.
They had a lot of exhibits that the OKC Zoo doesn't have. And vice-versa. It was well worth the long trip to get there. Except, and you knew this was coming, I am TIRED!
We left the house around 9:30 a.m. Arrived back home at 6:45 p.m.

And tomorrow is more of the same ALL DAY stuff. ACK. Double ACK.
Tomorrow is house-goody shopping. Lots of plywood and 2 x 4's. Levels. Wonderful carpentry stuff like that. Oh. And Wal-Mart, of course. Sometimes I can't believe I quit working there. heh
I hope everyone's weekend was lovely. Mine FLEW by. I must go now. The toothpicks keeping my eyes open are beginning to give.

Hope you have fun. Today and tomorrow are filled with doctor's appointments for the oldest and youngest, who has broke out in a lovely array of hives for no apparent reason.

Hopefully the middle one will remain his normal self.

I don't think there are any zoos that would take you or me. *lol*

My kids LOVED the zoo when I took them. :) My son just couldn't get over the fact that the animals were _real_.

We love zoos! But I'm with you...that many hours out of the house with the kiddos and I'm BEAT.

I haven't been to a zoo in ages! Since we moved, I don't know if they have one here, but you reminded me to find out!

This made me want to take my kids to the zoo.

Why am I just now realizing you're a local?? Maybe it's because I grew up with the Tulsa Zoo, but I always favored the OKC one. Dolphins, man! It's all about the dolphins.

Either way, I now have a sudden urge to go to the zoo. Now to borrow a kid off someone as an excuse...

LOVE the zoo. Been to the OKC one hundreds of times. Such a fun, summer trip. Never to Tulsa. But now that we've been, we'll go back.
Silma: No doubt. LMAO
Tink: I have several. And I'm local. *grinning*
