Yesterday, Tuesday, Reagan and I went to the Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines with some of our friends and their moms. What a great day we had!!! We seemingly found the most perfect weather our poor state has seen in nearly 2 weeks - and it was a gloriously beautiful day. Basically, it was the summer day you picture when you day dream about summer in the dead of a January winter.
Reagan loved the zoo - as long as all the animals and their big noses stayed inside their pens. Thus, the mules and goats were NOT appreciated when they gently swayed their heads in her direction so that she could pet them. Evidently, she missed the sign that said "petting zoo" and refused to touch anything. Which was fine. We just stood and watched from a distance instead.
After our wonderful morning at the zoo, we all went to McDonalds. Some of you may be horrified by this, but it was Reagan's first trip to McDonalds. No, she has never indulged in chicken nuggets and french fries before. She suffers from a rare condition in which her parents have failed to introduce her to the experience of dining beneath the golden arches. Girl likes chicken nuggets. We'll be going back.
Here are some pictures of our day:
