Rob was on call all weekend so he had to stay close to the house. I took the kids to the zoo along with Aunt Lynn. Before we left, Rob was giving them office chair rides around the house.
It was such a beautiful day on Saturday. Perfect and unseasonably cool (80s: that's cool for July in Oklahoma).
|A chimp came right over and sat in front of A.|
She was largely unimpressed.
The chimps were pretty cool, but Avery was on a mission to get to the giraffes. Ben didn't seem to notice the animals much, but was more than content to ride in the wagon.
|He was pretty impressed with the ice cream|

Saturday night I made a new recipe for Rob and I after the kids went to bed. Shrimp and Scallops with Spicy Vodka Sauce. It was pretty good! We will make it again.
The poor kids got none of that deliciousness, but they were none the wiser. I did make Avery a shrimp quesadilla. She would have been crushed had she known we ate shrimp and she didn't get any.

Sunday morning, Stephen and I went to Lynn's to help organize some things in preparation for Baby Will's arrival in a few weeks! It was crazy seeing some of the tiny newborn clothing that belonged to Ben. He was so little; now he's a 20++ pound chunk.
Later, we went to Gigi and Pepaw's for swimming and burgers.
Ben exhibited his super amazing baby strength.
