We old folks (Jim and I) were wore out and Todd and Michaela really wanted to go to the Phoenix Zoo. So we compromised. We took them to the zoo and dropped them off and promised to pick them up when they were finished.
While they were at the zoo we went to the vet’s to pick up another medication for Skittlez – the antihistamine that didn’t work. More on her later.
The kids took the most incredible pictures and it has taken me forever to choose the ones I’ve put in this blog. And I’ll warn you, there are several pictures.
We picked up the kids about 2:30 and came back to the air conditioned fifth wheel. Taught them how to play Convoy and Cribbage and then headed to Outback for dinner. It was terrible. If this had been my first visit to an Outback I sure wouldn’t go back again. The wait was an hour which is pretty typical. We all ordered steaks which is usually a good choice. However, the steaks were tough and gristly. Michaela’s garlic mashed taters had so much garlic in them that it brought tears to my eyes when I tried a bite. We didn’t say anything because they were so busy. We just ate what we could and got home about 9:00. Once again we all collapsed into bed.
