You know how sometimes you do things for your kids just because you love them so?
Like how you walk around the zoo even though it feels like you're walking inside an oven and you'd rather just be sitting on the couch eating bonbons?
Well, I showed my kid some love today. I hope she knows it.
Watching her watch the sea lions and the polar bear swimming underwater totally made up for the cranky feelings I had inside though. That was awesome. Those animals are pretty cool. Also, baby giraffes are pretty much the most adorable thing ever.
And then, as if I it wasn't perfectly clear how much I love her, we went to the dinosaur museum too. Oh, I am a crazy lady. We brought cousin Ray Ray with us. It was mostly my idea though since I wanted to check out the new exhibit. It was kind of lame and totally not geared towards the 5 and under crowd but at least we got our 50 cent cup of ice cream before heading home.
Nothing says love like ice cream.
p.s. Because I'm not sure you remember and it never gets old listening to people complain about the summer heat, IT'S HOT and I hate it. But I sure love my kid.
p.p.s. My parents live 3.2 miles away instead of 2,000!! That's pretty awesome. It makes up for all the complaining about the heat that I do.
p.p.p.s. How do people actually love summer? I really do not understand. Ok. I'm done now.
