Read here about the first half of our vacation.
On day 4, Jay, DJ, Henry and I decided to check out the little zoo that was close by. Amanda unfortunately had to work so it was just myself and the boys. It was another very hot day and as bad luck would have it the pool was going to be closed and would remain closed for the next few weeks apparently. Bummer. The four of us started in the gift shop and goofed around. Henry didn't find us funny at all. He crashed in the stroller while I rode a camel (fake) and DJ and Jay braved a hurricane (fake). I found lots of pirate stuff for Henry's room though in the process.
Detroit Zoo, by a million. We all were hot and sweaty but it was a really great time. Just when were about to leave we stopped and saw a sign that said "enter at your own risk". Inside it was full of various animals roaming freely! It was so cool. Peacocks, iguanas, giant turtles and exotic birds of all kinds walked around like they could care less that you were in there. DJ and Jay took turns watching Henry on the outside, but I was in animal heaven.
Brave". Have you seen it? You must if you haven't.
Ford's Garage and walking along the water. Henry needed a more relaxing day. The boy's poor teething gums were really bothering him. He was a grump or sleeping for the majority of the day. After mingling around all day we got back to the condo and ordered mexican food and curled up to watch a movie after Henry went to sleep.
Despite our rough end, our vacation was definitely one to remember. DJ hates not being able to see his brother every day and it kills him that he can't share the most important thing in his life, Henry, with him every single moment. It was long over due that we made this trip. Thank you again Jay and Amanda for having us. We love you!
