Yesterday, we took advantage of a beautiful day and headed to the zoo! Mr. B was able to take a rare day off, and it was extra fun to spend some time with Daddy. I think the girls were especially excited, remembering the ice cream treats they got the last time we made a family zoo trip. Sadly, Mr. B has chosen to fast from ice cream after our pastor's message Sunday, so I had to explain to Evie and Eloise, as they sat so expectantly after lunch, that there would be no special dessert this time. I did my best to explain fasting to both girls. A couple of minutes later, Evie approached me and said, "I am fascinating from ice cream, too. For three days. How many days is Daddy fascinating?" Despite the lack of dripping, cold treats on sticks, we had a wonderful time. See for yourself! In case you're wondering, I just completed day five without Diet Coke. In other words, I'm still fascinating. Also, in case you're wondering, Evie decided to stop fascinating when the VBS snack last night was root beer floats (she had hers without the root beer).
