Weekend Wrap-Up

Whew! What a busy weekend. Friday, Mr. Just Keep Talkin' and myself left the kids with my parents and had a night to ourselves. We ate at a local steakhouse then went shopping. It was nice to browse through the glass and china section at World Market without fear of Monkey Boy grabbing (and throwing) something.

Saturday, we left Monkey Boy with my parents and we went to a wedding. This was a nice introduction to Wedding Behavior for Kangaroo Girl. She did really well and enjoyed dancing at the reception. The wedding is a whole 'nother post in itself. As we were leaving the church, I told Mr. JKT that "there's a short story in here somewhere". One example: after all the photos were taken, the Maid of Honor changed clothes and came out wearing a t-shirt that had "They Call Me Big Sexy" airbrushed on it, and sweat pants and flip flops. Seriously!

Yesterday, we took advantage of the nice weather and went to the NC Zoo in Asheboro. We are members at the Greenville, SC Zoo and we can get in free to other zoos. We were having a great time until a storm rolled in about 1:15. We loaded up and went down the road to Seagrove, where there are many pottery shops. Around 3 pm we went back to the zoo to wait out the storm in the van, and it started hailing! It eventually cleared up and we walked around the newly renovated African section. They have really improved that part of the zoo. Here's a tip, don't go to the NC Zoo in the summertime, as it is hot as blazes and also very hilly, esp. in the African part. However, they have mini-buses that take you between the N. American section and the African section if you don't want to walk. The kids enjoyed riding on the mini-buses, they are painted with zebra stripes.

We headed home and ended up at University Place right outside UNC-Charlotte. There is a nice lake with shops and a playground for the kids. We ate supper at Mickey D's then got home around 8:15. It was a great day!
