Our Mini-Staycation

Mike and I have both been super busy the last couple months so Mike took a couple days off work and we had some quality family time together. Wednesday the girls went to school and we just got some errands done and went out to lunch. When the girls got home we all went to see Wreck it Ralphat the theater (which they all loved! in fact, we gave the option of Disney on Ice or the movie and they all chose the movie). During the movie I managed to spill an entire large popcorn on the floor...seriously, not one kernel left in the bucket. Mike had just gone to get a refill of it, I set it on my lap to divide among the kids and it fell off. I am worse than the kids about that kind of stuff, I swear!

The next morning (the 8th) we headed to the zoo for a fun-filled day. The weather was absolutely perfect and other than a few cries from over-tired kids, it was a lot of fun. Looking back now I just remember it as a perfect day :-). We fed the giraffes for the first time and it was really cool to be that close to them! After exploring a few different zoos this summer on our big trip, I have a renewed appreciation for the Houston zoo and all it has to offer. It was definitely a nice little break from our usual business and has all looking even more forward to Thanksgiving!
