I don't know where last week slipped off to. It started with a trip to Potter Park Zoo with the bitty one's class. I drove with my friends Cory, Barb and their 3 kids, Hayden, Jeracko and Tyler. Hayden and Jeracko are twins and bitty one's "best friends!" Besides touching EVERYTHING, they also had to stick their heads into every freaking cutout in the zoo!
Hayden, the one on the left, is crazy! We were eating lunch and she was playing around a trash bin. I noticed a "shadow" and before I knew it, she grabbed it. Unfortunately the squirrel attached to the tail she had a hold of was extremely surprised. Not 5 minutes later, she grabbed a peacock's tail too. I think she has a thing for tails! If you didn't know, the bulbous headed one on the right is bitty.
Potter Park is a small zoo in Lansing. Perfect for a day trip. The kids had a great time! They also went to a little show and tell with some of the animals.
At one point, I turned around to find this a little too close. Needless to say I didn't have the most graceful of exits! The handler told me I was going to scare the kids. I thought "Dude, how are you going to feel when I squish your buggy friend with my camera?" I hate spiders!
He was kinda cute, for a lizard.
This guy was quite a character! He would jump on the ball and roll off onto his back with his little legs squirming in the air. You should of heard the kids laughing at him!
Of course, no trip to the zoo is complete without a ride on a camel. The kids thought this was pretty cool.
Next time, I want to go to the Fort Wayne Zoo. That one is my favorite so far.
So, that was about it for last week. Wednesday is graduation day for the preschoolers. I do have a little project/gift that I have been working on for the kids. You just have to wait til then to see though!
