House Husband

Over the weekend I went with 21 other women to hike and camp in Havasupai.  The hike was a total of twenty or so miles and not being a hiker, outdoorsie, a runner or an anything, I am very proud that I made it out alive and what's more, with a great experience.

The very best part of the trip was when I got home, the house was clean, Joey had fixed our waterfall/pond, he also enlisted the kids in helping him clean the schoolroom (that we have never actually used as a schoolroom yet because it's been such a disaster.)

As you can see he also did a few loads of laundry, swam with them, and took them to the movies.

Friday morning Joey dressed the kids up as cows (with Isabel's help) and got free meals at Chick-fil-a.  As you can see we are not afraid to sacrifice our children's dignity for free food.

Sylvia looks thrilled.

This picture makes me laugh.  Both her feet are an inch from the ground.

Joey also took them to the zoo.  I think Joey needs to be the house husband, or I really need to go on vacation by myself more often.


Tucson Zoo

Did you know that Tucson has a zoo?  I sure didn't.  Yesterday Joey had work off (every other Friday off!) and we took a tour.  The Reid Park Zoo is a relatively small zoo (small zoo = good).  All of the cages and enclosures are clean and very nice for the animals and all of the pathways are thought out and shady.  It took us around two hours to see everything but we could have stayed longer.  I forgot the camera so here is a picture of the map. zoo
