you belong in the zoo

happy half birthday micah! he turned 18 months old today. our day started off with getting malia ready for picture day at school. she's always excited to wear a dress to school. and on top of that we curled her hair. she felt like a princess. after school and day care, i took the kids to the zoo. we had some passes we got for free last year. i meant to sell them on craigslist, but of course at the last minute before they were going to expire, decided to use them. we were only there for a couple of hours, which was more than enough time since it was just me and the 2 kids. jos and jonah met us there. all malia cared about was seeing the snakes, i don't know why. micah was interested in some of the animals, including the giraffe and elephant, but if there was ever a duck nearby the duck got all his attention. malia even begged me to buy her a toy snake in the store, but i managed to convince her we could find it elsewhere for less. besides, the ones they sold didn't even say the zoo on it. then they each took a turn having a fit in the store. my little monkeys!
