Forget the To-Do List

On Monday I made a last minute decision to take Will to the Zoo after Museum School. We are over there every Monday, and I have been wanting to take him all year. Every Monday either we had something that we had to get back for, or the weather was terrible. This Monday I had a very long list of things to get done this week (although I don't know that it was much different than any other week!), but when I saw the weather and the fact that there were only 5 more Museum classes left for the year, I decided Monday was the day. We had a great time, and it wasn't crowded at all. We only had 2 1/2 hours, but we didn't have any problems seeing everything during that time. Will was a little funny because he would go up to an animal and then almost immediately say, "Okay, let's move on to the next animal." I wasn't sure why he was in such a hurry until I realized he really wanted to get to the train ride. Finally we did that, and he was much happier. We rode the train, had lunch, rode the carousel, fed the birds, ate ice cream, and saw lots and lots of animals. Will thanked me so many times throughout the day for taking him to the zoo. A few weeks from now I bet I won't remember what was on my to-do list that day, but I will definitely remember our afternoon at the zoo.

Love his "spikey" hair in the front! My boys always say, "make it spikey!". Cute! I miss him and wish I could watch him grow closer! Glad you had fun!
