The kids were out of school Wednesday in honor of Veterans Day.
We went to the zoo. I loved watching the monkeys! So cute!

No, not these monkeys...

These monkeys! Aren't they cute? And funny too!

We had a wonderful time.

We enjoyed a picnic, kettle corn (my favorite!!), snow cones, and cotton candy.

I think the animals were as excited about the lovely fall weather as we were.
They were very active which made it even more fun!

The End

Well, almost... on the way home that evening we were just exiting the freeway when I heard a strange noise. I pulled off to the side of the road and into Discovery Park. I hopped out to realize that my tire had completed blown out! But here's the blessing... Football practice was going on and within moments two massive football coaches ran over to my rescue. They were a blessing and had my spare on in no time and sent me on my way to Costco to get a new tire. If that had happened anywhere else it could have been scary.

Sorry Miss Chanda that Ash missed her music lesson.
Sorry Scouts that Josh missed taking down the flags.
