in the morning we took the kids to a park so they could play and we could talk.  the weather was perfect and the kids played happily.  i was so grateful to get to catch up with my sis.  sometimes we feel really pulled by the kids and it’s hard to get a complete sentence out.  by friday was mellow and the kids cooperated.

after lunch we took them to the santa barbara zoo.  there weren’t many people and the animals were very friendly.  just my speed.

david really enjoyed watching the penguins playing.  they are pretty darn cute! david would happily jump into play with them–except he doesn’t swim.  sorry, david!
