We went to the zoo today with our friend and mama of twins Lisa. It was just Magdalena, Augustus and I with Lisa and her boys in the stroller. Usually, we're a group going, ya know, at least one other family often two or three, so today felt like a luxury.
Magdalena and Augustus were together. Playing. With each other. I know I know, there brother and sister right? They play together all the time, right? Well...sometimes yes but I realized we've never been to the zoo as just us. Just the Barnas family and there was something so lovely so sweet so basic about M & A playing together. At the zoo.
Lisa had not yet arrived when we got there so we went on in by ourselves. It seemed so...peaceful, so easy. We wandered in and Magdalena led the way because since we do always go with other families, I never pay attention to where we're going and really have no idea how to get around the zoo with all it's paths and continents. Magdalena wanted to go Straight To The Playground. But first let's stop and take our picture in the photo booth! (never done that before!) Next, On to the Playground! But let's stop and play on the apes! Next, On to the Playground! Oh! There's the lion, so close, right there! He's sooo beautiful! OK, now, On to the Playground! Oh wait, the elephant sculptures! We must climb those! Mama, mama, take a picture and post it to fb and call it Magdalena and Augustus in Africa! Done.
Now, On To The Playground! (ring ring)
Now, off to meet Lisa and the boys at the entrance!
Anyhoo, it was a beautiful day. We played, we saw a few animals, had a lovely lunch with the Jaguars, played at the playground (finally) and rode the carousel.
It was a special day with my crew, and yes I do believe we will be doing that again one day in the near future.
