One benefit to Ben only having class and teaching Monday through Thursday is that we can do things as a family on Fridays. Just after the semester started we packed up a lunch, loaded up the car and took the kids down to the New Orleans Zoo. It was an enjoyable day since most of the kids in the area were already back in school. Evelyn was so excited during the whole drive down. I had hoped that she would fall asleep on the drive. She did, just 5 mins before we arrived. She still managed to have enough energy to walk a majority of the way. I'm excited now that Evelyn is a little older for all of the adventures and outings we can have!
I know this next picture is blurry but I had to add it. I hate hate hate snakes. They creep me out. So ya'll should be proud of me for touching it.
Apparently the train was too loud for Evelyn
