A very busy day

Our day was jam-packed yesterday. The only other thing we could have possibly fit in would have been breakfast out. We left the house at 11:30 for our agency picnic. We met our friends Alissa and Emilio there. Alissa's mom came too because she wanted to see Andrew. I met Alissa and her mom in Guatemala on my visit trip. Our boys are only a month apart and had a great time playing together.

hmmmm.....I wonder what kind of trouble I can get into here?

Trying out the soccer moves he learned from Ellie last week:

Dos Amigos:

After lunch, we took off and went to the zoo. They were celebrating Hispanic Heritage month with "Fiesta para todos" or Party for All. The boys were excited to see Tyrone from Backyardigans and a couple other mascots there--even though they had no idea who the other ones were.

The Chicago Fire mascot:

'Teddy' the Turkey gave away autographed coloring sheets. Who names a Thanksgiving turkey, Teddy? Is that supposed to make turkey sound cute so I won't eat it because it's not going to work.


I've never seen the sloth bear move before:

Checking out the lions:

Two little joeys:

Showing me how kangaroos jump:

After the zoo, we went to dinner with the Daniels family for some delicious Mexican food then back to their house for 'smores. Andrew and I both passed out by 8:45 and slept til 8:20 the next morning. It was heaven.
