I am Kathy. I'm not really a witch.

We went to the zoo today. I had a Groupon for it that wasdue to expire on Thursday so we had to use it. It ended up being a good day because it poured this morning and even though the sun came out midmorning, the zoo was pretty empty.

We agreed that our favorite part was the aviary where all the birds landed on you. No Alfred Hitchcock moments and no bird poop so bonus!

The close second was, of course, the gorillas. I’m sad it was too dark to really make out the picture of my 3 smiling kids with the pissed off gorilla in the background. My eyes met with that gorilla at one point and I knew we had a connection.

Only ripple was pointing out Little Joe, the gorilla with a history of two escape attempts many years past. Fairly certain Aidan will worry about escaping gorillas now for at least a week.

You know that creepy neighbor? The one who is always peeking out the window and knows your daily schedule better than you do? Where I live, it’s Sarah.

Chris was on vacation this week. After spending the week with all of us, I am fairly certain he will never take another one.

On a positive note, I think he understands why I drink now.

Fun fact: It was only a year ago that I learned that the “birds you see at night” are bats.

Drive-in!!

Drive-in!!

I’m not saying that aliens have abducted my husband but he just took all 3 of our kids to the fields to help Aidan practice baseball so obviously aliens have abducted my husband.

Call me naive but I really didn’t think I’d be saying that by age 4.
