On Monday the girls and I and the rest of Wichita decided to head out to the zoo.
The weather was just too gorgeous to stay indoors.
We arrived just after twelve o'clock and there was a line that stretched all the way down the sidewalk.
The line looked daunting and the idea of being inside of the zoo with all of these animals other people made me cringe. But, the girls really wanted to go inside. In fact Emma begged me. I could not say no.
Emma & Sophie had a great time.
It almost made up for standing next to the dude at the penguin cove with the RIP neck tattoos.
Emma handled the crowds and noise like a champ
WITHOUT HER HEADPHONES.
Sophie did a great job too!
Although I did end up carrying her for the last 20 minutes.
Sophie insisted on seeing the monkey's. On our way out of the smelly exhibit we ran into Emma's teacher, Mrs. Loux! Emma looked a bit surprised to see her. She was there with her baby boy who is just a little mushy thing.
Oh, and one more thing: Emma did not want to hold my hand. Or walk too closely to us for that matter.
