A Journey with Love and Laughter

Read about our family as we journey through life as a family, with siblings, school and spina bifida, and lots of fun and laughter along the way!

Happy Zoo Year!

Our new years eve plans were in jeopardy with the virus I had (I'm off work for 10 days!) But with a pair of gloves, and realizing that I wasn't putting any newborn babies at risk - we decided to head to the zoo for their annual new years party.

It was BUSY! And dark.
We saw a polar bear (up and eating), Santa's reindeer and a snowy owl (hoo hoo).

They had the carousal up and running and all Katheryn wanted to do was ride the dolphin!
And I found out that they are wheelchair accessible (so next year when it's running again, Nick can come with us)

There was some dancing

And getting ready for the 8pm new years countdown!

Nick was very excited that he could see the stage and the huge screen tv!

The only negative thing - trying to manoeuvre Nick's wheelchair in between cars, and through the slush -  because people had blocked the driveway and the walkway to the accessible spots was not shoveled!
Yes we did tell them at the front  -but nothing was done.

So except for that little non-speed bump, we had a good send-off to 2011.
