Zoo day and a war...

...it's us against the flies. Ever since we picked peaches I don't think I've gone a day without seeing a fly. To be perfectly honest I usually just wait for my hubby to kill them (oh, I couldn't kill a fly - HA!) I lack the wonderful hand eye coordination that it takes to kill them on the first try. Today I launched an attack and I've killed five (I've still seen two more since) The side effects: 2 year old running around the house smacking his little hand on every forbidden surface in the house - TV, windows, - actually picking up the fly swatter and using it on the dog. Ugh!

Yesterday we went to the zoo and I thought I'd share a few photos, me? post pictures?! only every post lately! It's hard to say what our little guy's favorite was since he liked just about everything... could be the zebra, camel, or leopard - who was pacing the front of the cage with our little guy running, giggling and pacing with it. Mom and Dad were oh so grateful for double fences, we were sure it was drooling! All of us enjoyed watching the moose just gnawing away on a stick. We had the most fun watching the look of amazement on our kiddo's face at every new creature, including the Madagascar cockroaches - gross!

Having fun in the "nunnel."

Try living in the country! Last week we were killing 50 or more a day! It was insane! They aren't quite that awful this week, thankfully. My 1 year old was playing with the swatter too. The funny thing is, she actually GOT one! I was so surprised. But then when she started trying to swat her sister, I ended up having to rassle the swatter away from her...

Yikes, haven't found any flies, thank the Lord. Of course, my hubby and baby have allergies, so we can't have the windows open. Pooh, I love fresh air, and they're allergic to it! Go figure.

Fun! Glad your time at the zoo went well.

And your part about the flies. I KNOW!!! And my kids bring them in more by leaving doors opened. NICE!
