A Day at the Zoo!

So, now that I am getting a little closer to little man #2 getting here, I am getting a little bit more sentimental about the time I spend with Iain.  Last night, I was thinking about how he just turned 3 years old, and how this time has absolutely flown by.  It seems like he has been in my life forever, but at the same time it seems like these years have passed in the blink of an eye.  It is amazing how quickly life speeds up when children come into our lives, and I want to make the most out of these last 6-7 weeks we have with Iain before another little guy starts to take some of that attention too. 

So, even though we didn't necessarily have the money to do it, we decided we would make a way to find ourselves at the zoo.  Iain absolutely loved porcupines, the jaguar and the snake house.  He kept talking about the BIG kitty cat and how it says "meow, meOW!", and the "lirtle nake, and BIG nake" at the snake house and how they like to say "SSSssssssss...."  We even spent time sitting in the middle of the boardwalk learning our letters from the names of donors engraved in the boards, while everyone else walked around us giggling at how funny we were.... it was simply great, even if we were in the way of everyone else!

If I can, I would like to try to do something special like this again before Lachlan gets his eviction notice, but even if it isn't anything "big" the rest of this time will be nothing less than special for us all.
