This placemat is the Viking project for July. It has a cute little pocket for silverware.
The kids and I went to the zoo this afternoon. I like to go around the middle of the afternoon, when the early birds have left and their close-in parking spaces are available. We saw two elephants and two monkeys and the sea lion, then Aaron wanted to go to the playground at the Children's Zoo. Turns out there were some young zoo volunteers there playing hide and seek with the kids so that's where we stayed. No more animals for us. The kids had the best time running around, stopping often for water breaks and enjoying the day.
That's one of the advantages of the zoo pass, if there is something unexpected and fun going on one day, then there will be another day for the animals. Or, in my case, the plants, there are beautiful gardens and planters at the zoo.
