The Zoo

Today Tara and I went to the zoo with our 4 kids. It was quite an adventure. Luckily for me I am nearly done with my first trimester, otherwise I wouldn't have made it through the reptile house. It smelled like a liter box that hadn't been changed in 2 months. Sadly I know that smell all too well!






This is Shaun and Grady checking out some sort of animal most likely. Little do they know it... But they will probably be best buds in about 6 months or so.
Here are the chillens riding the bronze tigers. They wouldn't let us ride the real ones. Go figure.

This picture is mainly proof that I was there and didn't pawn off my kids on Tara for the day... with 4 kids, 4 car seats and 1 stroller.


Here is Shaun on the carousel... He is riding the ant eater. And that is Tara in the background looking like she is about to say the "F" word. Probably because Shaun got to ride the ant eater. Curses like a sailor that one!



Here is Austin telling Aiden the ins and outs of the zoo, and what we will be seeing next on our tour.









Here they are ready to go. I bet you didn't think it was possible to fit this many car seats in to a SUV... it is. I just takes 10 minutes and sweaty pits!

Quirks.
Lisa sent me a quirks tag. This will not be nearly as funny, or weird as her's:
Un: I don't eat mayonase! I don't let my husband eat it, I don't keep ot in the house, and my kids have no idea what it is. I think it's NASTY!

deux: Similar to Lisa (with the holiday thing) I LOVE Christmas! My siblings and I would spend forever "talking about Christmas" when we were little. Basically you take turns saying what you want for Christmas. Lame, I know. But I have to admit, Christmas has gotten so much better with the addition of kids!

trois: This is odd... I love to draw floor plans of our future house... I do them to extreme detail. Then I color them, and show it to Ben. Then later I randomly quiz him on it to make sure he was paying attention.

quatre: I cannot eat and watch a movie at the same time. Something like candy is fine. But I get grossed out by everything! Even some of the characters, and lose my appetite. I always make Ben pause it until I'm done.

cinq: I am very picky meat eater, and sometimes vegetarian. I don't eat things like steak or roast, but the meat that I do eat I have to cut it into very small pieces and examine it. Especially chicken.

six: I rarely to never have naked toenails. I think they look weird. Don't get me wrong, They get to the point where the paint is about all chipped off. But never fully nude.

I tag: Tara, Mom, Danica, & Holly D.
