My parents visit was nearly painless. Kids were out of their heads which is to be expected. We made a trip to the zoo, multiple parks and kinda lounged around.Like the monkey pic? My little monkeys love the monkeys . . . he, he. Our zoo is under major renovations, making room for lions and hyenas, oh my. We are lucky to have such a fine zoo close to home. We make frequent trips with our annual pass and don't feel bad cutting a visit short for afternoon naps, etc.It was lovely having extra kid-watchers around while out and about. I was able to take a few pictures without worrying about the kids falling in the duck ponds are running amuck in some other way. Still experimenting with Elements. Very fun and somewhat addicting. My idea of a perfect afternoon? The chocolate cake, hot coffee and quiet to learn more on Lynda.com and fiddle with photos. Ah. Lovely.
