labor day weekend fun

wow, is it already friday?  what a crazy busy week, and we haven’t even really gotten to the crazy busy part of the fall!

we had a fun long weekend last weekend.  it was still scorching, so we let the kids loose with the hose.  fortunately the lcra didn’t come and get us for letting the kids water the driveway.

the squirm is a big fan of being in charge of the hose.

as usual the squirt was able to find some dirt to play with.

amazingly, we got up monday morning to find that temperature had actually gone down quite a bit!  we decided to take advantage of the cool down and run to johnson city for a safari!

the animals were in fine form and seemed very glad to see us.  they seemed extra interested in licking the squirt’s head, which normally i wouldn’t mind, but their antlers seem to follow the head closely and they are pokey!

we got to see the squirm’s favorite friends, the zebras.  and i have a soft spot for the scottish highland cows, with their fuzzy fur.

    i have a soft spot for cows, even though i’m lactose intolerant, and i adore those scottish highland cows. such character. if i had a property i would definitely get some of those. do you know there is a blog about seeing a cow every day? http://mydailycow.wordpress.com/

    we had a drought for such a long time, and the use of hoses was severely restricted. two years ago, we got a bit of rain and the authorities allowed kids to go under the sprinkler on hot days. my kids had never experienced that before and they love it now. i remember as a kid, the principal of the high school i went to, hosing the students on the back oval on really hot days.

    great photos!

    Oh my, how cute is that cow?! And the little skull hat- did you make that? Love it!

      no, the hat is actually i-play brand? i scored a great deal on it on summer clearance. since it is still over 100 here, i think it fair to say our summer is not over! we have some sunglasses that match 🙂
