Today was a fun day. The girls had a couple of friends over and they were all equally hyper and excited to spend the afternoon together. If fun is measured in laughter, they had a lot of it. We decorated Altoid tins, scrapbook style, and filled each with a mini scrapbook which included the above pictures.

Mitchell joined his Sunday School class and teachers at Safari Island for the afternoon after making their own pizzas at Pizza Ranch. If fun is measured by how red, tired and clorine irritated one's eyes are, Mitchell had a bunch of it.

A Snake at the Zoo

Yesterday we went to the Zoo. We took in the dolphin show, the tropical fish feeding and the shark feeding. We traveled through the air on the monorail, and we walked the MN trail. We felt anemones and sharks. But the best part was when the kids and their fifteen year-old buddy darted into a short, dark, observation tunnel and found a loose snake curled up in the corner sleeping. They ran out to report the loose animal. The fifteen year-old's concerned mother went to inform a zoo employee of the escapee. She came back with interesting news: the snake was a fake!
