The day after we got back from Wisconsin, Shay’s family came down with the stomach bug. Her brother, my cousin Korban, and his wife and baby needed a ride to the airport. Since I hadn’t been able to visit with them over the weekend, I was happy to take them so we could chat. And since I was already in Seattle, and it was a non-rainy almost-60-degree day, and the kids had no school for Veterans’ Day, and everyone was healthy… we went to the zoo!
My kids are almost manageable in public these days.
