Well, the weekend definitely was not long enough.
I took the day off from work on Friday. My son had his first grade field trip to the Denver Zoo. And I rode the bus with him. To the zoo and back.
The day was cold, and it started to mist/sleet for the last hour or so we were there. Then, I forgot to bring along any cash, and all the other kids were getting cotton candy, ice cream cones, stuffed animals, etc.
BUT, it could have been a lot worse. (And I did get a little knitting done on the ride up.) I was still really, really glad to get home that evening, though.
The picture I posted yesterday is of my son. He's perched on a statue of a gorilla (though that's hard to make out in this photo). Whenever we go to the zoo, we always joke about going to visit my kids' cousins ... the monkeys!
