Minnesota Zoo...here we come!
We went to see the Dinosaur exhibit at the Zoo.
Super Heros and Super Excited!

Checking out the Fish. This reminds me of another trip to the Zoo (back in Feb. 2009, see two pictures below)

Flashback to another trip to the Zoo with some of our twin friends in Feb 2009. I think it might have been easier to tour the zoo when everyone was strapped in the strollers! Now, we are running after them all.

Here is the same aquarium again!
We have been packing in some activity during the last few days of summer 2012. Its been a great summer and perhaps one of our "easier" summers in terms of being able to do things. We are a lot more self-sufficient in many ways this year and much easier to take places. One of our biggest accomplishments this summer was being able to swim! Luke and Liam can officially jump off the side of the pool and swim back or even swim to the other side completely on their own. So, at least I do not have to worry quite as much about them when we go swimming. This might not sound like a lot, but when you are watching three non swimmers in the pool by yourself, it can be a bit nerve racking!!
As part of our final week of summer, we spent one day at the Zoo. I think we were there for around 5 hours which might be a record amount of time for any activity for us. A trip to the Zoo is a big deal because the Minnesota Zoo is about 45 minutes away. When it comes to picking activities, I typically pick the ones that are simple (i.e. the park) versus ones that are costly and a good distance away from our house. The boys tend to have fun regardless of what we do, but occasionally its nice to do something special. We went with some of our twin friends (9 kids total) so we were a fairly large group of 4 year olds, 2 year olds, and an infant. Thanks to our friends for a super fun day at the Zoo!
Stay tuned...we have a trip to the Fair coming up later this week!
