We went to the zoo, and patted emus. I think emus are a bit scary (they're quite big) but son was quite taken with them. We went to the zoo on a hot afternoon and the lions were snoozing. The tigers were snoozing. The brown bear and the snow leopard and the meerkats and the cute little monkeys were snoozing. Even the otters looked a bit lethargic.
The boys did some bouncing at the mall. It's quite spectacular - especially when they're doing flips. Although these things are always run by toothless carnie types who tape the ropes together with chewing gum. But the boys survived, and quite enjoyed it.
I get a bit antsy towards the end of the holidays. I like being on my own, and being able to do things that I want to do. Not that my children are very much trouble ... but it will be nice to be back into a bit of routine again.
