When Noelle came down the stairs on Saturday morning, I told her that we were going to the zoo- and she was ready to leave right then! I told her we still had a little while until we needed to leave and that daddy and Jonah were still sleeping. But she just kept saying "Get dressed" and "Go!" Luke and I were really curious what was going through her head, and what exactly she knew about a zoo. My mom took her back when she was probably not even a year old, and the only other thing we have at home about the zoo is her book about Curious George going to the zoo.

We grabbed some lunch, and then the girls rode on the carousel- which Noelle threw a fit about having to wait to do, and then about having to get off after the ride was over. The last stop was the farmyard for a little bit, but Jonah was starting to get really fussy (the little stinker had been awake for close to 5 hours by then!) so we made a speedy departure for the car.
