a great day!!!

What a FABULOUS day to spend at one of my favorite places! We made our now annual October trip to the zoo today with some friends of ours and their little one....and I think it was the best one yet. The weather was clear and cool and the kids are now at an age where they can run around and actually enjoy the animals. And I should say for the record, that for the most part everything went well. ( insert clearing the throat noise here...) Cole is now also at the fabulous age of 15 mo. when the fits and the word "no" mean the world is coming to an end. He spent a small portion of our trip strapped into the stroller kicking and screaming because we wouldn't ;et him continue to pull the wagon and run into people and their strollers. Riley was quite observant of this not so great behavior and said, " Mommy, what's he doing?" Maranda and I laughed, and at the very same time, said, " The same thing you did at this age." After the fit throwing commenced, the rest of the day ran smoothly.

We topped it all off with a ride on the new and improved Hermann Park train which we all enjoyed.
