The move, part 3 - the zoo

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.  

 Their town has this fun summer project where the children paint rocks and hide them.  When you find one, you are to post it on their town site and then re-hide it.  So much fun!

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 were happy that the boats were operating but disappointed that the elephants weren't out in the water at that time.  Can you tell how disgusted Hannah is to have to wear the life jacket?

                       "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!!
 Luckily thunderstorms were brewing and it rained that night!
