What do you do after spending a day inside, consuming sweets and savories and opening gifts at a frenzied pace? You take those kids somewhere to “get the crazies out”!

I was looking through my August pictures and realized I forgot to mention our zoo outing.  We got out the door early one day and made it to the zoo by 9:30am.  Seeing such an abundance of open parking made me a little giddy and I foolishly parked in the B lot, because it...
