Family Trip to the Zoo

So tired, but we had a great day!

We went down to Providence, RI, for a visit to the Roger Williams Park & Zoo with my girlfriend Jen, her fiance Steve and Steve's son Rowan, who is a few months older than Charlie. When I told Charlie where we were going and asked him what animals he wanted to see, he told me chickens! LOL Unfortunately, there were no chickens at the zoo (although they're expecting some before the end of the month), but we saw giraffes, zebras, elephants, camels, a sloth and so many more. We had a great picnic lunch, courtesy of Jen, and a so-so dinner of fast food on the way home. The boys were great together, holding hands as we walked around the zoo, and Isaac was good, too.

Lucky boy got to be carried around the zoo in the front pack first by me, then Jen, then Daddy.

We've got big plans tomorrow, too. Chris' Aunt, Uncle and cousin are coming up for a cook-out lunch. We rarely get to see them so this will be their first time meeting Isaac and I'm quite excited. We're too beat to do much tonight, but the plan is to get up at a decent time tomorrow to get things started. We still need to tidy up the house a bit and hit the dump and Market Basket. I'm going to make Pineapple Chicken Kabobs, a recipe I found a few years ago in Taste of Home magazine. It's quite yummy. :) I think I'm also going to whip up a quick Macaroni & Tomato Casserole and a Boston Creme Pie for dessert. I would have loved to have some of the Chocolate Chip Cookies Charlie and I made the other day, but there are only about 10 left! They were soooo good!

In other news, my baby is sleeping in the crib for the second night in a row! He settled in really easily last night and again tonight. I'm thinking he was getting too big for his bassinet.

Too soon for another? LOL

  1. Sounds like you all had a great time! We took Aiden there last year when I came to visit my Dad. He had a blast but wanted to take all the animals home. Looks like our little ones would have been two peas in a pod.
