I had big plans to also knock out the zoo, ride a camel and feed a giraffe but I found out it is not smart to go the the zoo on opening day of the Africa exhibit!  We did get to see the animals and Betty White but that was about it!  I let the kids skip school being the cool mother I am but obviously I was not the only one doing that!  Never again!  

School is over in 2 days and then the real fun begins!  The kids are so excited to get our whole list done.
