a quick father's day recap

we set off to RI bright & early last Sunday.
our destination: The Roger Williams Zoo (because fathers got in free)

a pit stop was made in order to eat breakfast & change diapers:

Car ride
classy McD's. ridin' dirty. alex.

alex also consumed way too much water & promptly pee all over herself & her father.
this led to the rinsing of clothing & the use of the bathroom hand dryer in an attempt to make things wearable.

when that failed- operation "dry RuffleButts on the car's dashboard" commenced:

Drying a wet RuffleButt
it didn't work as quickly as i hoped it would

despite an awesome double stroller, purchased specifically for her & her sister, alex refused to sit & demanded to walk or be held then entire time.

she did show some mild interest in the animals- but not nearly as much as the husband was hoping for.

Roger Williams zoo
alex's favorite. zebra. flamingo.

but all i all- we had a great time.

and the best part? the girls were totally unknowing the backseat- so i didn't have to share.

short & sweet. have a great weekend!

Taking Elliot to the zoo is still at the top of my list! I'm also adding a trip to Rita's, which I've never even heard of. But I MUST go there someday!!
