There was a family outing on this past Monday –
A ride on the Metro –
a trip into D.C. –
And a long planned talked about visit – TO THE ZOO !
You know that feeling when a event is about to happen –
But you can not be there to share the fun !
Well – I had a three to four hour test Monday morning –
And all the grand kids and their mothers were coming –
And MOR MOR
( Sherry – mothers mother in Swedish )
Was going to lead them into Washington and to the ZOO !
They had talked about this all year –
as soon as all the kids were out of school !
We or they had to do it on a Monday –
So – with my test already scheduled –
I missed out on a fun trip.
Debby and the three oldest girls made the trip from Lake Holiday –
early on Monday morning ( they stayed the night )
Mike – their dad – was going North to help his parents open their camp –
In the Adirondacks – Raquet Lake.
Tammy – her one day the store is not open is Monday –
brought the three little ones –
who are just as excited to be riding the Metro !
Marcus had to work.
Their plan – spend the day –
come home – have TACO MONDAY –
and talk – play into the night –
I also had the job of watching FINNY –
a love bird that belongs to Sarah –
Debby’s youngest !
We argued back and forth with TWEETS !!!! LOL
They kept me updated –
I got back home around 10:15 am.
FINNY was watching TV.
from his cage !
As soon as I walked in – he began
( I think it is a he )
He would chirp at me and bob around in his cage !
I missed out on the Zoo –
but got to spend time with everyone
until I went to bed at almost 10 : 00 PM.
We have been to the Zoo numerous times since we moved here.
And all those times have been with the grand kids.
I hope you enjoyed my little day blog on family fun –
I missed out but recovered for a enjoyable late afternoon and evening .
Then the next day we all took a walk around our pond – lake .
