On their own, none of those things have a whole heck of a lot in common. But when you mesh them together it is what we accomplished in a few short days in early August.
Our buddy Aubrey joined us mid-afternoon so that the girls could have fun with our zookeeper friend (another Aubry!).
They learned all about training animals, big cats and red pandas.
School shopping is a rather predictable situation for us since Ella is in a uniform-wearing school. We still had fun getting a few new khaki, navy blue and red threads.
