A Day at the Zoo

Untitled

Dan took off from work yesterday and we packed a lunch, picked up two of Emily's friends and headed off to the Bronx Zoo.  It's been such a weird summer with Dan leaving for work at 8-8:30 every day and not getting home until 6:30 or 7:00.  Then the weekends are taken up with the church.  It doesn't make for very good family time.  It's been an adjustment to say the least.

So yesterday was a wonderful time to just relax and enjoy ourselves.  We took Emily's friends two years ago to the same zoo and it was funny how even though they are teenagers, they still wanted to do some of the same things - the carousel, the petting zoo and children's zoo.  I'm glad they are still in that in between stage!

Here are some photos of the day.

A new section of the zoo was devoted to animals made out of legos.  This was pretty cool and some of the animals took hundreds of hours to put together.

Emily's expression cracks me up.  She was telling Sarah how when she fed the cow something really disgusting came out of it's mouth! lol

We all had a great time and Dan said, "I feel like I've finally had a sabbath!"
