Spring Break Recap: Day 2

It rained in the morning.  A lot.  And while I let the boys get a later start than usual, I was keeping an eye on the weather.  I had planned to spend a few hours at the zoo, rain or shine, before ABA this afternoon.  These children are from hardy Pacific Northwestern stock and are used to doing things in the rain.

But then the sky cleared and it was a gloriously sunny afternoon, with maybe a little extra wind tossed in.

With Ane away, the boys were…. relatively well-behaved, though we did have to have a few talks about who was in charge of the other person’s behavior.  Shocking, I know.

Thumper was also very chatty and engaged – and walked most of the time.  I am so glad to be able to go stroller-less and diaper bag-less at the zoo.

We saw most of our favorite things, but mostly just enjoyed getting outside for fresh air and sunshine.

Though apparently all of this wiped Tad out just a little too much, and he ended up with a migraine at the end of the day, poor kid.  Or it was motion sickness.  Either way, his head was hurting and he ended up vomiting.  I AM SO OVER THE VOMITING, KIDS.  Fortunately, we made it home first before that happened.

So, was that “too much excitement, too much happiness” (Tad’s words) in one day?  I doubt it.  But we’ll take it slightly easier today.
