Sunday Funday

in All Posts

Yesterday, we hit the road for a spontaneous adventure – we went to the zoo!


Actually, let’s back up.  First, I woke up feeling incredibly rickety and sore, so I went to a basic yoga class at my gym and stretch everything out – lots of hip openers.  Oh yeahhhh.

I have decided that I am over the super sweaty, super challenging vinyasa classes.  They used to be my jam, but now they just seem too… Arg, I don’t know!  Too much of a super hard ass workout!?  When I go to yoga, I kind of just want to relax and breathe deeply and stretch, not burn calories and feel my heart rate skyrocket.  Know what I mean?  Basic felt pretty damn good.


Once I was all loose and limber, we sat in the car for an hour and half to get to the zoo!  It was loads of fun, as always.  The big turtles are always my favorite.


Oh, and we rode the carousel!   Both of the kiddos had a blast – Henry especially because he got to ride the cheetah! And I got really dizzy.  I think that means I’m getting old… Hah.


And we took our photo booth picture, per our tradition!  Fun to have Claire in it for the first time ever.  She hammed it up.


Well, that was short and sweet, but I just wanted to pop in and say HAPPY LABOR DAY to my fellow Americans.  Let’s say, “Goodbye Summer!” in style – I hope you have a great day outdoors in the sunshine.

    That looks like a fun tradition! We took our daughter to the zoo for the first time on Father’s Day and she had a blast. Enjoy your Labor Day!

    Riverbanks?! I grew up going there many times each summer. So many good family memories.
    I am glad you took your kids on the carousel.. I remember thinking it was a must!

    Yes! I feel exactly the same way about yoga. Used to love the really hot, really difficult, vinyasa classes, but the past couple years I’d so much rather go to a calm, slow, quiet class. Maybe it’s that having kids makes the calm quiet moments so much more rare and precious?
    Love the zoo! How funny about the carousel. I’ve been wondering if the next time I go to Disney will I be to “old” for the roller coasters. 🙂
