This Saturday, we took an impromptu drive down to New Orleans to visit the Audubon Zoo. When we first arrived in Louisiana last July we bought an Audubon Institute Membership but only got around to visiting the aquarium. We didn't know what we'd been missing! The Audubon Zoo is fantastic! It's full of great animals, a splash park, Dinosaur Adventure, snowball (Louisiana version of a snow cone) stands, and plenty of greenery to keep all the visitors and animals cool on all our HOT Louisiana days! The best part of this zoo is the live animal discussions. The zoo keepers come out to feed the animals and you get up close and personal with the wildlife. DJ, Cam, and Damon all touched an elephant and we all got SUPER close to a giraffe. The zoo keepers answer questions, too! If you're ever in the area it's definitely a MUST DO!
In other news...
The end of the school year is upon us!!! Damon, DJ, and Cam are all done on Monday and I'm finishing the year out on Tuesday. Both boys had a great school year making lots of friends and earning honor roll awards. DJ even earned a Leadership award and a Physical Fitness award signed by the President! We're proud parents :0)
On Thursday we'll be packing up and heading the 1,000+ miles to visit friends and family in Detroit. We're only staying for about a week because when we return we have to pack up and get ready to move.
