& this is 2012's father's day picture. it also pretty accurately sums up how the day went. but toss in some screaming on alex's part, some furious parental whispering, a dash of impatience, 5 miles walked around the zoo & 4 hours in the car.
you're allowed to be jealous. but seriously- it was awesome. we had a fun day traipsing to the Roger William's Zoo in RI. we went last year but the girls weren't as aware of everything that was going on. this year they actually realized that they were looking at zebras & giraffes & elephants...tiny minds blown.
despite a total meltdown (on alex's part) around12:45ish (well past nap time) things went swimmingly. we stopped @ Rita's Italian Ice on the way home (i need this in my life more than 1x per year) & thankfully the majority of the trip home was 2 little girls passed out in the backseat.
i'll share zoo pics later this week. i just realized i didn't take a single picture of any animals. weird?
the rest of the day was spent putzing around at home, playing with the baby chicks & eating an impressive amount of rice. seriously guys- we ate so much rice yesterday.
then alex found this feather, & thanks to numerous Dumbo viewings, was very much under the impression that it would allow her to fly.
clearly it worked. clearly.
this one will have feathery feet. we're pretty pumped about that.
all in all- a pretty stellar day. many thanks to the husband for being a kick ass dad.
you deserve this.
p.s. there are still some items available on the girl's clothing store: LATB Store thanks to everyone who's bought stuff! i shipped out friday's orders this morning!
