We have a small zoo exactly a mile from our house, and thanks to a very special baby shower gift, we have a membership to enjoy the zoo all year. Saturday with Daddy and Mommy feeling better, we headed out to the zoo for the first time. We were only there 2 hours, but we had a great time and stopped by Rita's Water Ice on the way home. Joshua got brain freeze on the 4th or 5th bite and decided Mommy should finish his mango water ice. Patience loved hers but spilled it halfway through and decided her distress required a very loud and attention drawing tantrum. Garty eagerly ate whatever Daddy was willing to share.
