I am an awesome big sister. I took my 9-year-old brother to the zoo this morning.
My first stop was to my grandparents’ house. Grandma fed me breakfast: a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie, a slice of cantaloupe and two sweet red cherries.
Right after eating that cantaloupe, my grandfather informed me he heard in the news that there was a salmonella outbreak in cantaloupe. Joy. It’s the Jimmy John’s scare of 2012 all over again.
Papa apologized for feeding me potentially poisonous fruit by giving me a planter for the daisy Husband brought home the other week.
After a lovely visit with my grandparents’, Zak and I headed to the zoo!
Meet Jimmy the Penguin and Jerry the Tortoise. My little brother named almost every animal we saw. Some of his favorite exhibits included creepy lizards, bats and river rays, which he decided he could turn in to food.
After two hours of walking around the Sedgwick County Zoo, Zak and I were pooped! (All that exercise!) We left the animals, stopped by Subway and headed back to mom’s house. I left Zak after we had lunch, but he seemed pretty OK with his AWESOME sister leaving the house. Guh.
When I got home, I got to work. I organized my recipes, planned my grocery shopping trip and cleaned up my house.
I feel so accomplished today! I hope this energy sticks around so I can make a delicious dinner.
