I'm at the point now that if it's hot out, like it was the past weekend, and the pools are closed for the year, I'd rather see some cooler temps. I mean, I actually really enjoy warm weather but more so if I can take the girls to the pool or Zoombezi Bay and since that isn't an option, I'm awaiting fall with open arms. Of course, you know in like 2 months I'll be complaining about how it's so cold and we're stuck inside! So what did we do the take advantage of our hot weekend? I took the girls to the zoo on Friday, we went to the Dublin Farmers' Market and ran some errands on Saturday (including a walk to Handel's for a milkshake), and rode bikes to the park on Sunday. The girls were fighting some sort of cold last week and Todd finally got hit with it on Saturday. It was like a complete 180--he seemed totally fine and then an hour later he was curled up on the couch with his eyes barely open. He didn't even make it to half time on Saturday night watching the OSU football game. Thankfully he took a couple naps on Sunday and was feeling much better by yesterday.
We got to the zoo right when it was opening on Friday morning and it was dead for the first hour or so. We were able to walk up to most exhibits and attractions without waiting and Lucy was finally able to ride the camel by herself

This one penguin was swimming around like crazy in the water and Lucy kept running back and forth with it
We were the only people on the carousel

Cece was terrified and curled up in a ball on my lap the entire time

After surviving (and behaving) a couple hours of running errands, we had lunch at Chick-fil-A and Lucy asked for a milkshake; well, their ice cream machine was down so once we got home and Cece went down for her nap, Lucy & I walked down to Handel's for a milkshake
The only exciting part of our Sunday was riding bikes to the park to play for a bit
