We met at the zoo on Friday morning. I felt like I already knew Courtney! The kids were a little slow to warm up, well, at least the younger ones. I saw Alivia talking with McCartney pretty quickly (he is 7). Addison and Asher refused to let go of my hand most of the time, clinging to me like Saran Wrap. We walked through the jungle and butterflies before stopping for a picnic lunch.
After lunch, Alivia and McCartney continued to warm up to one another while Addi and Asher let go of my hand more. We walked through the packed aquarium, visited the giraffes, walked to the sea lions, played at the playground, before ending up at the dino dig. It was flaming hot!
We decided to call it a day. It was fun to finally meet up with Courtney and meet her kids. We will hopefully be seeing them again, as Alivia can not stop talking about how sweet McCartney is, and "When can we see him again?" She ran into the house to tell Chris that she met a new friend, a boy!
Until next time...
