"But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us." 2 Corinthians 4:7

On Saturday, our family had our first zoo day. Those of you that know me well know that I LOVE the zoo. Last year, I begged Jon to get the family pass. After further discussion I realized we wouldn't get the value out of it, so I decided to bide my time until kids before I would press the family pass again.
Guess what, two kids later, we have a family pass! We even have the buddy pass, so if you want to help me with the twins at the zoo, call me! (Yes, I am thinking of you, Amy K). ;)
So, I am not sure if the girls really saw any animals. I think they did see the sea lions, geese and horses. Otherwise, they just watched us point to the animals.
We chose to go on a HOT day. I feel like hot is an understatement here. I mean, crazy muggy, sticky heat. Like we had to go into the rainforest exhibit to cool off. (Yes, I am exaggerating, but it felt about the same as the rainforest!) Jon decided to take the girls through the mist-thingies every chance he got.
They liked them. :)
My, my, I must add on to this post. Cheerios are strewn across the floor, laundry needs done, readoption lawyers need to be found, but I must let you in on my gleeful excitement! My Zoo Pass came in the mail! Did you know we get discounted entrance to zoos all across the U.S? Oh my. My poor children are going to be so sick of animals...or become zoologist. ;)
