More spring break

Becca's fav part of Skate City--getting an Icee!

Bridget is getting good at skating. Becca won't try.

Clare, Bridget, Becca, and the polar bear back behind them!

Becca getting buried too!
I have been trying to keep the girls busy this week and I think I am doing a good job so far. Monday was Crown Center, Tuesday we got a new Barbie movie and they watched it with a friend then we went swimming for hours, Wed. I took them roller skating, and today we went to the zoo. Let me share, with those that don't know, I think our zoo should be called the Kansas Shitty Zoo. Today, it lived up to my given name. First it was so very crowded. More crowded than I have ever in my life seen any zoo be. Then, once inside the horrid place, there is a sign that says that the Africa part of the zoo is closed. No big deal right? NO! Africa is half the zoo--including the elephants, lions, hippos, giraffes, zebras, and my favorite, the meerkats. Oh! and the sea lions exhibit was closed. We did see the polar bear, sleeping tigers, sleeping kangaroos, and a bunch of farm animals that we can visit at Deanna Rose. Regardless, the girls still enjoyed it for the most part. I tried to get a friend for each of them to go along today. So many families leave town, that I was able to find a friend of Bridget's, but Becca's were not available. She didn't seem to care much as she knows most of Bridget's friends and Kelsie went along.

I have been debating about keeping the zoo membership or getting a pool pass. Today made my choice crystal clear. Pool passes and Deanna Rose are in our future summer.

After we left the madhouse of the zoo, I took the girls to our neighborhood park where they seemed to enjoy themselves just as much as the zoo!
