Zoo Day

Today is a day for taking it easy.  Wildman is at school and Cutie Pie is home with me.  It’s supposed to rain and I have housework to finish up.  Since we don’t have anywhere we have to be I let Cutie Pie stay in his pajamas.  I love days like this.

Part of my housework this morning consisted of vacuuming up shards of glass from our back porch.  The wind was so strong yesterday that my outdoor wall clock blew down.  I thought the face was made of plastic but soon found out differently.  I loved that clock.  You could read the time from the other side of the pool.  Now I’m on a mission to find a replacement.

The other thing I had to clean up outside was a huge piece of soffit that had apparently blown down over night.  That’s some pretty strong wind!  March has not gone out like a lamb…

Anyway, because we’re being bums today, I don’t have any fun pictures or stories to share except for our zoo trip last Friday.  By TGIF the weather had finally turned nice so B and I took our kids on a little field trip.  Much fun was had at the petting zoo and wading pools.  Dippin’ Dots were consumed with joy.  It was a lovely day!

Now I’m off to scour the Internet for ideas for fun summer activities for the kids.  I’m sure we’ll do a vacation bible school or two but I’m not sure that I’ll sign them up for swim lessons this year.  Both boys are very competent swimmers.  I definitely need to find a few fun things to break up the summer without over-scheduling ourselves into craziness.

Enjoy this Tuesday!

    I think we’ll be heading out to the zoo when it warms up a little. It’s been quite awhile since we’ve been, and the DC zoo is always a fun trip!
