After lunch, we decided to head back to the OKC Zoo for an afternoon of family fun (we have a family pass, so we're taking advantage of it!). Mike wasn't able to go to the zoo last time, and the kids are always game for an trip, so off we went. The zoo is really so big that unless you spent an entire day from open to close, you couldn't really see everything. This time we hit the places we didn't get to see last time. Places like the aquarium, the herpatorium, the new elephant habitat, the Children's Zoo (where they once again played in the water), and the Carousel. Even though the temps reached 97 degrees, the zoo was shaded and the slight breeze cooled us off enough. And surprisingly, it wasn't crowded today. The kids behaved themselves and we had a great time.
Later, as we were eating dinner, Leah asked me, "Mom, what does 'epic' mean?" I said, "It means something really, really good." She replied, "Well, today has been an epic day!"
I'm so glad that we are creating "epic" memories together as a family.
