It Was a Zoo at the Zoo!

     Jeremy and I tagged along with McBride's 4th graders to the Birmingham Zoo today.  Jackson had to be in class at 6:15, so it was an early morning for all of us.  A couple of hours later, we pulled into the zoo lot like true Griswolds and promptly parked here.

Yep, first ones there.  And we beat the traffic that afternoon when we headed home.  Thanks, Clark.  When the buses finally arrived we split the kids up and roamed around looking at all the animals.  We had about 7 boys with us and it was all we could do to keep up with them.  There were several other schools there, and we heard an employee telling another parent that they were expecting around 3,000 kids.  We checked Jackson out right before lunch and grabbed a sandwich Which Wich.  They had the most fabulous chips ever, made fresh with salt, pepper, and lemon zest.  Next we window shopped a little and got dessert.  Jeremy got cheesecake and Jackson and I got Yogurt Mountain.  So good!

This field trip has been brought to you by Grandma (who kept Mia and got her to school this morning) and Nana (who kept the Parker and Everett and got Parker to and from school today).  Without them none of this would have been possible!
