Derek had his first day of the IRA Conference today and Eric had to work. Kelli and I took the kids to Como Zoo in St. Paul. We got there shortly after it opened at 10am. It was fun to watch Cade notice the animals and to growl at them. He really enjoyed himself. Abby had been to many zoos since she was quite young and she had a great time too. Attached to the zoo is an amusement park called Como Town. There are rides just like at a carnival. Kelli bought some tickets and Abby rode a bunch of rides. Cade was going to ride the train, but then he fell asleep. The kids ate a picnic lunch in the double stroller and then we looked around some more. We saw a baby giraffe and a baby orangutan. Abby thought that was pretty special. We left at about 1:00 and I was glad that we had gotten there early. People were fighting, well arguing, over parking spaces. Abby fell asleep on the way back to Kelli’s, but she woke up when we got there. Derek came back before supper and we ate on the deck again.
