This weekend was a whirlwind! We had the Topeka Zoo on Friday, a BBQ on Saturday,and a Royals game on Monday! I would have been busy Sunday also, if Noel hadn't cancelled on me (thanks, Noel; really thank you!)
So, this is post 1 of 3. I will discuss the BBQ and Royals game in another post.
We invited Noel and Caleb to the zoo with us. I figured since I didn't know a lot of parents from daycare well, it would be nice to have someone I knew very well there with me. I'm glad I did! We ended up going off and doing our own thing. We took in the zoo at our leisure. Total time was about 2.5 hours. It's a tiny zoo. Just right for Aiden.
For most of the day, Aiden had his pacifier. The night before, he was up until 10 pm. Arik has softball on Thursdays and likes for us to go. We hang out in the parking lot after they lose their 2 games. Trust, generally, they lose all their games!
Here are a few pix from the day:
Here's Aiden swinging his legs on a bench just his size. He really likes to swing his chubby, little legs! I just adore those ham hocks...Aiden was SUPER excited about seeing Nemo and Doree (spelling)! We had been watching Finding Nemo in Sadie MV for the past 6 weeks. He knew of those two fish very well. He kept saying, "Nemo, Nemo." His excitement was overflowing...
We had a really good time with Noel and Caleb. Aiden did very well the whole time. I was amazed since he was up so late the night before. We had barely gotten on the highway back to KC when I heard him snoring... It was a delightful day; well worth the extra effort it took to get sub plans ready (that's another story).
