A crazy thing happened recently: Paul and I found ourselves alone with only one child. We could hardly believe it all came together, but it did. So, we took just Katie to the Zoo.
Here she is, checking out the flamingos. Funny thing, every time I took her OUT of the stroller to see the animals better, she wanted to get right back IN the stroller as soon as she was done looking.
No running off with this kid. She is content to be wheeled about like a princess from exhibit to exhibit.

Sacramento Zoo is a small zoo. It doesn't take very long to walk around the whole place. They don't have the variety or the quantity of the larger zoos. But we did have some fun sightings, like this snow leopard, above. And we did get to see one of the large cats getting a check up and blood draw in the veterinary hospital viewing windows.

Somewhere, I have pictures of my big kids all lined up on this snake slide.
Miss Katie was hesitant at first, but she went up a couple times. They have a new playground on the other side of this structure now, although they've taken out the spider web rope climber.
It was a nice morning out, just the 3 of us. Paul said people probably thought we were an infertile couple, out with our only child. Made me laugh to think about, but then when I was made eye contact with a very pregnant mama, who was chasing 3 stair step boys, I realized how true it was.
Although we had fun together, Katie was happy to see Hannah when we picked her up from school. She's not used to being alone.
