We went to the zoo today after church, it's a good place to go let the kids run around and wear themselves out, and happily our zoo has a great deal of stuff to see and do indoors, since it's so cold. Unfortunately our kids do run through everything, they are not much for quiet contemplation while gazing at the dolphins....so we do a lot of running, yelling, pointing, and more yelling. And we see everything in a blur in about a hour and 15 minutes. But, it's all in good fun.
But we got there and I realized I didn't have my new camera along. I might have to make a solo trip to the zoo one day this week after the kids are all off to school so I can do the quiet contemplation thing, with my camera.
I'm working also on invitations to Aliza's karaoke birthday party, which is two weeks from today so I guess I better hop to it! I had made these great CDs of songs the kids can sing and dance to, and then I realized I wasn't careful, and some of the songs were the originals, not the sanitized Kidz Bop versions. So I have to redo them, because you can't just take a song off a CD -- once they are burned on there, there's no changing it! I don't want moms calling me, yelling at me for giving their kid a CD with suggestive lyrics.....yikes.
