Ever since Matt and I have been married, he has typically taken off of work during my Spring Break, which lately has included St. Patrick's Day. We used to go on vacation, but since the girls have been in our lives, we've had pretty low key Spring Break's. For St. Patrick's Day 2009, we went to the Botanical Gardens, and last year we went back and had a blast. THIS year, we decided to spend our St. Patrick's Day at the Zoo. The girls' had so so much fun. All week long we talked about all the animals and asked the girls which ones they were most excited to see. Hands Down, Olivia wanted to see the Hippo's....sadly, when we got there, the Hippo exhibit was closed. Boo. Guess we'll have to go back....but she was pretty happy that she got to see the giraffe's or Raf's as she calls them. Sydney wanted to see the Lions and Bears, which we definately saw. We went to the Zoo with some of our favorite people, which of course includes Caroline. I did her a couple of requests for Stephanie, who is my BFF Nancy's daughter (and we talk about her a lot), but it's still tax season, so getting together with them and baby Rachel is pretty hard. We had a great day at the zoo, and were exhausted on the ride back we crashed and burned fast...slept the whole way home, but only too a tiny nap when we got home because we do that when we sleep in the car. Boo.
Daddy and Sydney...
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you....Hope you didn't get pinched!
