We started off the day with plans of going to ZooBoo at the zoo. But upon driving to the entrance and noticing the big back up of traffic, we drove past the zoo and noticed how packed it was. At this point we informed the kids that we would not be going to the zoo because it was too busy, but we would still do something fun. We found a parking spot and walked to the canal. We thought we'd check out the paddle boats, but upon looking at them a bit closer noted we'd have to get 2 and we might lose a kid in the water. So we walked to the bike rental building and rented a double surrey. It was quite fun to bike around the canal/IUPUI area. The kids had fun, we got exercise and avoided the crazy busy zoo.
We had planned on doing dinner over the fire when we got home. So Matt got started on building a fire, the kids played and I got things ready for dinner.
We had hot dogs, chips and smores for dessert.
Ben had fallen asleep on the way home from downtown. I had woke him up enough for him to walk in the house and throw a huge fit on the kitchen floor. He ended up going up to bed for the rest of the night and missed all our fun. He was SOO mad this morning when he realized he missed it.
Brigham had fun exploring the grass/leaves.
He doesn't like how they taste.
Matt was a little mad I was taking pictures and not helping.
