4th of July

We decided to go to the big city where my sister lives for the 4th of July weekend.  Mikey about fell asleep on the way home after the rained out fireworks last year so we opted to get a hotel room.  I used priceline for the first time and got a room at the Hampton Inn for $50.  It was really nice.

On the 4th the fireworks got rained out so my sister with her quick thinking said we should go to Toy Story 3 - 3D.  Roo and her little cousin B did pretty well.  She moved around some, but was quiet.  Then we went back to my sister's and they had got some small fireworks.   Sadly, Roo was not impressed.

The next morning we slept in.  We ate the continental breakfast and then headed to the Childrens' Zoo.  While we waited for my sister's fam we looked at some pretty flowers.  Roo was having fun with her sunglasses.  I guess they fit better upside down.

The zoo was really fun.  Since it is a Children's zoo it was perfect Roo and all my nieces and nephews.  They all had fun.

They even took pony rides.  My newphew, who is 12, "works" at the Zoo.  He is a volunteer, but refers to it as his job.

We ended the day with a train ride around the zoo.  Roo was super tired, but was very well behaved the whole day.

Hope you had a safe and happy 4th!

Roo is getting so grown-up!

Not sure if you meant to, but you used her real name twice in this post. Just a heads-up in case you are still keeping this blog private.
