Kangaroo Zoo... Again

Last week we took Nicole to Kangaroo Zoo again. We keep getting the coupons in the mail, so we continue to go. Pretty sneaky Kangaroo Zoo.

Since I am currently on "maternity leave" from work, she and Damon came with us. This is the only chance that Marie and I have to be stay at home mommies together and we have to take advantage.

 Since Nicole is just two and we had a coupon, we got in for just over three dollars. What a deal! Plus, adults who are just observing get in for free. So, we were three adults, two babies and just one kid who was there to play.
 Damon did a little bouncing with Marie's supervision, but his play time was not extensive. Mostly, he was content to crawl around and attack Marie.
 Daniel slept the whole time which made it easy for Matt and I to focus on Nicole. The transition to having a baby in the house has been rough on Nicole. She doesn't get nearly as much attention as she did before the baby was here, so we try to plan a "Nicole activity" to do almost once a week. We want her to feel special like she is still getting Mom and Dad time.

 Nicole went down the slides for about an hour before she started to get tired and didn't want to climb up the ladders anymore. She decided to go on one of the big slides near the end and she got to the top of the ladder and sat down to go down the slide and then she fell backward down the ladder side. It is a giant blow up, so she landed on the bouncy thing, but it scared her pretty bad and she was done playing after that.

Despite the drama at the end, we had a lot of fun. We will definitely return.

Damon and I had a great time, even though we didn't really do anything. Thanks for inviting us.

You are good parents. This is mom, not Krista. I just have to figure out how to change my name.

That really looks like such a fun place. We have something kind of like that here (on a much smaller scale), but I don't have any siblings to go with...sad...
