July 2nd was one of those days that I'll definitely remember for quite awhile and for different reasons. The beginning of the day was fabulous - in between rain showers, we managed to squeeze in a quick trip to the zoo. By the end of the day, I was sitting in the Emergency Room!
Georgia, Nick and I took a trip to the zoo last fall, but we hadn't made it back since then. With the Brodeurs in town, it was a great excuse to make a trip into the city to visit some of our favorite animals!
|Matthew loved posing with all the statues in the zoo!|
|Of course, once Georgia saw her big cousin on the bear, she wanted her turn!|
The weather was gray and showers loomed all day long, but we managed to stay dry most of the day until Georgia WANTED to get wet in the tidal pool...

But the highlight of the trip was definitely the new carousel that was installed at the zoo. Georgia had never ridden on a ride like that before and she loved it!!

|Fairly certain, she would have ridden all day long if we let her!|
Thankfully, we made it home from the zoo before I had another gallbladder attack and finally decided that enough was enough, so Nick took me to the ER and the rest is history!
Since I managed to get myself discharged before the 4th, I got to see some "fireworks" in action in the backyard while the kids ran around with sparklers...

Georgia definitely loved having "the boys" at our house. She constantly asks about them everyday and always thinks that they are coming down the stairs when she hears the gate slam at the top of the stairs. She loved having Matthew and Nathan to play with everyday...
