Yesterday I went on a play date with a brand new friend. Eek!! So fun! I really love meeting new people, especially new friends I’ve met on Twitter, even though I’m always so nervous when we first meet. Amber and I met at during VBS two weeks ago. She was one of our amazing tribal moms and her daughter was in Katelyn’s VBS preschool tribe. The girls became good friends too and we thought it would be fun to get together and take a trip to the zoo.
If you’re looking for a great day trip with small children where you can enjoy seeing the animals, but still be home for nap time, this is such a great option. I was impressed by the array of monkey’s they had and how great their brand new farm looks. They just redid all the barnyards and they look great. The kids loved meeting Thomas the turkey and feeding the sheep and goats. We enjoyed the zoo exhibits, a picnic lunch, and some play time at the park they had before heading home.
Poor Brayden was so tuckered out we had to sing all the way home to keep him awake!! You know how toddlers and transferring from car seats to cribs can be.
We had such a great time and can’t wait to hang out with our new friends again soon!
