We took the kids to the zoo to see the animals and vote for the name of the new baby gorilla. It was a pretty nice day for November.
After the zoo, I was able to go shopping with Michelle. It was great to have several hours to catch up (kid-free) and wander through the stores at the mall. I usually don’t care much for shopping, but when you’re with a friend, it’s much more enjoyable. 🙂
Friends of ours (Shecklet #4’s godmother and her kids) are in town visiting this week. We were able to spend several hours with them yesterday afternoon as well as today. Since Minnesota refuses to give up winter, we ruled out a park gathering and instead opted for the zoo. We scurried from building to building to see all of the animals and then ended up in the conservatory, where things were quite tropical.
