Zoo Day

I love love love the rain!!! I love how the colors seem bighter and the air smells clean. It feels so good to let the rain fall on your face. I feel like a kid again when it is a rainy day. I can't help myself but to want to run around outside splashing in puddles, letting my hair fall into dreads of wetness. So imagine my delight when I woke up on memorial day and realized that the forcaste was all rain all day. There was only one course of action. Buddle up the kiddies and play all day in the rain. Most people would shy away from a day at the zoo on a day like yesterday. But not the Triplett clan. It was a perfect day. The animals apperently love the rain too. They were out and about playing. We had a very nice memorial day. I had to share it. Here are some pictures of my little animals at the zoo. Evan's little smile lights up the whole cloudy sky. He was laughing as the rain drops fell on his face. I had to take a picture. One well-meaning lady told me that I should cover him up so that he wouldn't get wet. But how can I deny such a boy his joy in the rain.
Lauren and I looking at the Elephants. It makes me very proud and just a little bit sad to see how much she is growing. It makes me understand that her childhood is short. I want to hold each smile and laugh close to my heart. I wonder wear all the time has gone.
I love being a family of four. It is wild and caotic. I never have a moment to myself. Forget about my hair being done. I lost all forms of vanity when I became a mom. But look at my little family. Who could ask for anything more?
What can I say about this one. They are just full of innocess and happiness. I am honored to be there mom. (Lauren 3yrs, Evan is 8 months)
