but this time, there was a little twist... actually two little twists (: ... because i took my nanny kids there on a week day. i've never explored the zoo with little kids in tow, but needless to say, it was a different experience! let's just say that this time, my personal enjoyment of what the zoo has to offer was secondary. also, i think every other nanny/ mom had the same idea that day.. oof.. kids crawlin around everywhere! that part reeeally wasn't my favorite. neither was the time i got really excited to take them on the carousel that's in the rides part of the zoo, and little two-year-old lucas looks up at me and says "i have to go potty" while we're standing in line and there's no bathroom in sight..
but after that day, i sure have that much more appreciation and respect for moms and dads. i kind of think they're super heroes.
but regardless, it sure is a fun time for all, that zoo!
i'd recommend if you're around!
