I was quite elated this morning when my sister called to let me know that her ex-husband called in sick for his visitation today. (Long story on this one, and not sure it's a story I should tell in this format). So, I got an unexpected fun day with Baby-J ( who is 3 and I really should quit calling her a baby. It was supposed to be a beautiful day outside today so J and I decided to go to the zoo with a picnic and then play at the playground before ending our day with frozen yogurt.
Subway for our picnic - they have fresh fruit options and your sandwiches can be made to order. Unfortunately I went with Wheat Montana instead. Chips instead of fresh veggies & fruits (I didn't eat them). Didn't really like my sandwich, so I ended up tossing out at least half of it. Half of the zoo was closed for refurbishments (which begs the question, why wasn't the price to get in 1/2 off then???).
After 2 1/2 hours at the zoo, I was ready for something cold and refreshing so we headed to town for frozen yogurt. I'm now officially in love with Red Velvet Cake froyo. And I don't even like Red Velvet Cake.
I'm so glad we went out to enjoy the day - there won't be many more beautiful ones like this left before Winter rears her ugly head.
