Quick stop at Safeway for some odds and ends. Alani's choice of movies? Davey & Goliath. I still really like the theme song and I've always loved Goliath. 6 episodes! One on forgiveness came in very handy at the zoo.
Alani was tired - she was sawing wood less than 10 minutes after she had gone to bed.
I actually woke up before she did - we ended up going to Old MacDonald's for breakfast around 9. Then on to the Oakland Zoo - she'd been wanting to go for over a month. Lions, Tigers, but no bears. Oh Sigh... Elephants, camels, baby ducks, leemurs, giraffes, monkeys, meerkats, birds and zebras. The new Children's area is wonderful. Got to see the alligators close up, and sea turtles too. Otters! Goats!
While Alani was walking across the "lilypads", another little girl bumped into her. Alani ended up putting her foot in the water and was very upset. While I was wringing out her sock, we talked about the D & G episode on forgiveness and she calmed down. Thanks Mat!
We rode on the train in the very last car. One very happy wee party girl.
Came back to my place and had grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. Watched Dumbo on DVD.
Swimming! It's still too cold. 'Nuff said.
K & I took the kids out to dinner at Ohana Hawaiian BBQ. Kyle & Alani now like the chicken katsu.
