We decided that since we weren't actually going to go camping this past weekend, we would still have some fun family fun time.
It started on Friday. Because we were supposed to be camping, I was not babysitting. I was going to let them know that plans had changed but I found out before we cancelled that the kids were going to the Grandparents for a few days so I knew grandma would be excited. This gave me a day with just my boys. My plan was simple - go to Dairy Queen for Lunch (my favorite "fun" place) and then to my favorite local park just down the road. The playscape is awesome and now the boys are old enough that they can run and play without me needing to be right beside them.
On Saturday we decided to go to a local zoo we had never been to before called Potter Park Zoo. We were not disappointed and I would have to say that it is now my favorite zoo!
Finally, Sunday was filled with a concert!
Despite not camping, we really had a fun weekend and are actually starting to feel better. We had talked about doing some backyard camping on Saturday night but after the day at the zoo, the boys were very tired and Darryl and were ready to sleep in the A/C :-)
