The Zoo and the Jubilee :)

We went to the Bronx Zoo on Sunday. It was so hot and muggy. Felt like the 4th of July. We were having fun, then the girls got hot and cranky. There was a sign saying "Keep off the Grass". Honestly, who puts that sign on grass at the zoo? The girls wanted to run around so bad and threw tantrums when told no. Then we tried to visit Madagascar. Katie screamed once we were inside, so we left. They did chase the ducks (see photo below) and that was fun. All fun ended however when Karly was running away from daddy, tripped and fell banging her face in the rock wall. I turned just in time to see it from a few yards away and I felt sick. The next 2 minutes was trying to find out where the blood was coming from (her gums and top lip) and trying to get some ice (that I ordered from the teen working at the concessions) on it. Then she stopped crying, got down and ran off again. You can barely even notice she got hurt, which is good but man it looked awful when it was happening. We won't be visiting the zoo until they are old enough to ask to go. Totally not worth what we spent ($13/parking, $27/p admission, $9 drinks, $6 ice cream) . On Monday, we headed to the Seasons to celebrate our babies with our RE, Dr. N. He holds a Baby Jubilee and it is a lot of fun. At our table where 3 couples and 7 babies :). The girls got to try choc covered strawberries, choc covered bananas and some pastries. Karly like the penne vodka (she's mommys girl) and Katie ate her weight in watermelon (another mommys girl). We took a great photo with my RE. It was a lot fun. I got some great photos of the girls.

Vacation is in a month. I am so missing home. Can't wait until they see the girls again. I think my next post is going to be now and thens. I've been looking through my pictures and there are quite a few.

The picture of them by the waterfall is soooo beautiful! I love that one!

We're taking Andrew to the zoo on Monday (his birthday!) and I'm so excited. We bought him one of those backpack harnesses to keep him close to us, and he LOVES it. He feels so big walking around all by himself! You should look into getting a couple of those, especially since you have TWO little ones to wrangle! :)
