After the parents left, we ran to swim practice. While the older girls were swimming, Claire and I went on a hunt for painted rocks.
When the girls finished with swim practice, we decided to go to the zoo one last time as I have a grandparent pass. We knew it would be a hot day but we did it anyway.
Sophia had injured her ankle at the last meet. Because league was coming up, I decided it would be best not to have her walk too much on it and I got a wheelchair for her.
Claire enjoyed it too!
"We're on the swim team and shouldn't have to wear this!"
But Kansas law says age 0 - 12. Next time she comes to the zoo, she may be old enough to not have to wear it.
Look how hot they are!! We did take advantage of the mist sprayers that were everywhere!
And drank LOTS of water!
Sophia probably wishing she could swim with the turtle!
Always leary of bird contact after our church e-coli scare.
So grateful for God's hand in healing the children who were affected!!
I made sure the girls washed their hands.
We didn't spend as much time at the zoo as normal.
The heat was getting to us.
I let the kids pick out one gift from the shop. Claire adopted Oreo.
It really was HOT!!
