busy day

I am worn out. Flat worn out. I'm so tired it's actually taking effort to raise my wrists high enough to type on they keyboard. We've had such a fun day today! I took the boys to the zoo this morning where we spent 2 hours ooo-ing and ahhh-ing over all the animals. It was GREAT weather and we had a blast! We went ahead and bought the family membership, which if you have small small children who love to go to the zoo several times a year, I highly recommend it! You'll save yourself a LOT of money. Anyway, so now the boys are thrilled that they can go to the zoo as much as they want. We're planning on going with a few friends next week to have a picnic there at the zoo. My boys are animal LOVERS! They love feeding the giraffe. This time David let it lick his hand before giving it the crackers. That was the funniest thing I've seen in a while. All the "ewwwwwww GROSS!" screams were quickly followed by "I wanna do that again!" It was really neat to see them having such a great time. This is the first time we've gone without the stroller and wow, Daniel LOVED his new found freedom! He still stayed close but he really enjoyed not being strapped in. Then we swung by Sonic and ate lunch while making funny faces at Daddy (who never saw them). And after a shorter than short nap the boys bugged me and bugged me to go swimming. Our apartments opened the pool last week and they've wanted to go ever since. I was worried the water would be too cold for them. Two and a half hours later we came dragging into the house, literally dragging, more tired than we've been in a while. I'm not sure cramming swimming and the zoo into one day was a great idea, but it was the funnest day we've had in a loooooooong time and the boys needed a day full of fun fun fun. The best part was that we stayed so busy and worked every fun minute of the day, that they never got in trouble. We had such a peaceful fun day. I know it came straight from Gods hand. He knows what we need before we even ask. I'm so grateful for the peaceful day I've had with my boys. Today was a breath of fresh air and believe me, I've been praising God for it all day. It's awesome to see the boys faces light up with joy and they could have lit a dark world today. We even got to see some of our friends from church at the pool! We're going to top our day off with some pizza and Dr. Pepper for dinner. Is God great or what?

Here are some pictures from our trip to the zoo.
