Hello, November! Thanks for having better weather than October...seriously, we do appreciate it greatly. The kids and I are soaking up every beautiful day we have been having this month. I thought for sure we were doomed to have a 9 month winter when it snowed in September. But apparently someone loves us and decided to give us the Fall we never had here in the Midwest.
Last Friday was way too nice to sit around our house so we packed up and headed to the MN Zoo. We have a membership there and we have been taking full advantage of it. Besides, if the kids could pick anywhere to go it would definitely be to see the animals. Unfortunately some of the outside animals (giraffes, zebras, wild horses) were gone for the winter and the bears were already hibernating (in a glass cave so we could watch them sleep) but it was still fun. Braden has more fun watching the people there and Alexa likes the park best anyway, so really the only person missing the animal action was this girl.
Braden is in love with the dolphins, we sat and watched them swim around for like 20 minutes and the whole time he kept saying "Ohhhhhh" and "Hiiiiiiii"
