Vacation Day 5

The last day of vacation we spent at the Ohamo zoo--which is fantastic. Two thumbs up! Then we returned to Hilary and Tim's home where we had pizza. Yummy! Then back to the hotel for the pool and hot tub--where Hilary and I were very naughty and ate chocolate and drank wine while in the hot tub. Shhheeeessssshhhhh! Yes, rule breakers!

The activity of choice--and Julia just doesn't give up. Excellent example for the girls!
Yes, Hilary beating on my child---and him laughing his butt off!
A gorilla decided to scare the crap out of all the children by jumping up against a window. Yes, I'm pretty sure I saw the damn gorilla laughing afterwards! Out of all the children--the one who laughs (besides the daddies!!) is Chewie. Poor Mia cried--but being the brave girl she is, decided to check things out again--after a suitable time frame of course.

Ohhhh, look at the fishies!

Now isn't that the sweetest thing you've ever seen??

Hilary getting down to their level to explain things.

Follow the leader--onto a narrow little rope bridge.

Yes, as always--all children love Ted. My understanding is this is high praise!
The next day we drove back to Madison--and yet again I thank God for the dvd players. Saved a few children's lives. We had a blast and can't wait for the next visit--when hopefully we can get Hilary and Tim back up to Madison! (hint hint)
And yes my dear Mala--we are trying to figure something out!

That trip sounds like fun.

Chocolate and wine in the hot tub! You know I'm jealous!!!!!!

Seriously... we should plan some mass get together... what's central to all of us?
Oh course, there's always the Mouse's place.
