WOW was it HOT!! We went to the zoo yesterday. When we pulled up and saw at least 10 school buses and at least 10 charter buses we should have known it was an "omen"...or the fact that all the schools were getting in the last field trip. We did have a good time..and we were all wiped out on the way home! Of course ice cream from Mcdonalds perked us up..and cooled us off. This was Sophie's first trip to the zoo. We did go to the zoo in Chengdu but we were still getting use to each other so that doesnt really count.
