We Belong in a Zoo...
Spent today at the L.A. Zoo with the boys. The boys had a great time and I thoroughly enjoyed their delight. You'd think I would've taken tons of pictures (I mean... any good mom would, right) but, lo & behold, I forgot. Duh!
I did snap this a couple of shots of my teen with the little guy... mainly because I was so touched by the way big brother took care of him during the day. (They really were happier than they look in this picture... really.)
Finally, after at least a half-hour in the gift shop picking out the perfect souvenirs (4 of them just got gummy bears or worms so I got out cheap), we packed up and headed home... but not without a little field trip stop for the driver.
A quick detour off the freeway took me to Unwind in Burbank for a quick look around. (You can imagine my boys' delight.) Needing a souvenir as well, and not having the luxury of time that my boys enjoyed in the gift shops, I quickly settled for a super soft ball of Lana Grossa Cotton Fun sock yarn in beiges. Ahh, sock yarn, the perfect yarn shop souvenir!
And yes, I do feel a bit guilty that I didn't forget to take a picture of the yarn shop I visited for 10 minutes, while the 5 excited boys exploring the zoo for 4 hours escaped my camera almost completely.
