How Was Your Day Off?

Tuesday was quite a delightful day ~ We had a group of about 19 children and six or so adults visiting the local animal park. I say "about" and "or so" because I believe my day was spent counting heads. Depending on who was too tired for this thing or that thing, this ride or that ride, wanted ice cream or dippin' dots, frozen lemonade or a meatball sandwich...the count was always just a little different.

We had an amazing day and the most frequent sound was laughter. We saw ring-tailed lemur, okapi, spider's webs and lots of ducks. One girl lost her backpack and we found it ~ an hour later. No one dropped their ice cream all day. We discovered who is afraid of honeybees and who isn't. And I found out that for several of our kids, the ride in the van was the very best part of the day.

My "Day Off" was one of the best so far in Sunny.

Your day was definitely much better than mine! Looks like the kids had a blast, too.

Hmmm...you've got me thinkin' about those dippin' dots now...I love 'em! :o)

This picture looks like so much fun. My kids would love this. Hey I am always counting heads. I always laugh when there is one extra number.
