So last week we decided to go to the Zoo for the first time with the twins. So of course to take everyone to the Zoo I have to prepare. First I spend 15 mins picking out cute outfits b/c after all they have to all look good going to the Zoo! Than by the time we get everyone fed, loaded up, drive to El Paso (we live in the neighboring city Las Cruces 45 mins away), unload everyone, etc. Harmon is pent up with energy. So we stand in line, spend tons of money for tickets, and than chase him around the zoo. He liked some of the animals (especially the Sea Lions) but we all know he has a VERY low attention span so he found pushing the twins stroller more interesting 2/3 of the time. The twins slept the WHOLE time until it was time to eat. Oh and we get stopped EVERY couple of minutes with the same question: "OMG are those twins?" I think people found us more interesting than the new lion exhibit or the elephants.
I must ask myself why do I do these things? I think everyone would have been just as happy if not happier just going to the park next to our house. I think both Chris and I feel couped up all week at home and we want some sort of adventure. Unfortunately adventure is oh so difficult when you have 3 kids less than 2 yrs apart. Oh well, at least we have great pictures!
