On their last night in town, the Grandparent's Stro and Great Grandma Dodie took us for ice cream.
It was the greatest stuff we've ever had - cold, sweet, and really sticky.
We sank our teeth into those cones over and over and over.
When can we have ice cream again?
We waited for the rain to let up all morning. When it finally did, we decided to head to the zoo.
We were there for maybe 30 minutes when it started pouring. We got totally soaked. Man was it fun though.
We decided to go up to see the big cats from above instead of going into their house. Big mistake. The rain caught us with no nearby shelter. We went as quick as we could to the nearest tree.
When it let up, it was still really wet out. We helped Grandpa Stro with the wagon as we walked past the giraffes.
We also went to the conservatory while we visited the zoo. So many pretty flowers ("peepee ga-gows), so little time.
They also have these cool steps to climb up and down in the sunken garden.
And a great big jungle too, that Grandma and Grandpa Stro pulled us through.
Mommy went shopping with Grandma today so we got to play outside with Daddy . . . and our neighbor, Mrs. Karen's pretty flowers ("peepee gagow").
We also did a little off-roading with the bus . . .
. . . and watched the Anni and Hairy through the front door.
The other day we got to swim ("aboom") at the city pool.
We splashed our feet in the water while sitting on the edge . . .
. . . we ran in and out of the zero-depth (huh?) end of the pool . . .
. . . and we crawled through these giant pipes with steering wheels on them. It was so much fun
