Monday

The zoo story


Zoo-day

So last Saturday, I did something crazy. Like bring 3 nephews + 1 niece to the zoo. All by myself. On a really hot day!


The four year old wanted to be taken out of the stroller every time we got to an animal enclosure because he couldn't see anything...so I just let him walk with his brothers...but of course, he went MIA many times...[my heart got a workout!].


The two year old spent half the time chewing on a biscuit and the other half of the time sleeping. And threw a massive tantrum when we were watching the sea lion performance....[if there was a cave, I would have been hiding in it...*LOL*].


Of course, there was the stroller malfunction at the carpark + the four year old screaming for me to turn on the air-conditioning + fuel tank warning signal coming on [always happens when driving my brother's car...grrrr...].... But we made it home! *High fives all around*


Inspired by the sketch at ScrapFriends. And using lots of fun embellishments from Purple Pumpkin [I just joined their design team...yay!].

P/s: Come play along with my guest Lizzy's challenge...it ends on Friday!
