Spring Break:day 4

Today was the zoo and I am worn out! Plus, I got sunburn and for a very fair redhead like myself, that can be bad. Alot of times when I get sunburn I will feel sick later that night with chills. I don't have chills and don't think it's bad enough to go that far, but I definitely have that "sunburn icky" feeling. *sigh* When we were at the playground part of the zoo, I knew it was going to happen because I was sitting in direct, extremely bright sunlight.

When we left the zoo, I called a friend who lives in that town, actually the friend who I wrote about last week is going to live in American Samoa for awhile. I thought we'd chat while I drove. Well, I don't know what happened, but all of a sudden I started seeing things that I didn't think I should be seeing and then started seeing things that were very unfamiliar. I was too embarrassed to admit to my friend that I was indeed lost, or at least quickly becoming so, so I turned around and started heading back the way I came. I figured I'd eventually find a sign pointing me towards the town I needed to go towards. I did quickly find the needed sign but then proceeded to miss the exit. I finally told her that I had missed my exit (leaving out the part where I'd been really lost moments before) and hung up. We made it home in one piece and Gracie got another good laugh at my sense of direction!

After Daddy came home, we went to Sonic and used Gracie's free coupon for a Kid's Meal that she got for having perfect attendance the 3rd 9 weeks of school. Who knew such things as perfect attendance even existed?!?! She was absent so often near the beginning of the year for being sick that this is the first time she's earned such a reward. Yea!

We then went to Wal Mart to pick up some necessities and headed home for the evening. I think I'm going to bed early tonight! I'm so sad that one of our favorite shows that used to come on at 10 on Tuesdays, Amazing Race, has moved to Wednesdays at 8! With us having church at 7:30 on Wednesdays, we won't be watching it anymore unless we tape it.

I'm not sure what excitement, if any, tomorrow will hold. Thursday is a big day with a birthdayp party and a sleepover, so tomorrow may be a quiet one. We'll see.....

Hope the sunburn doesn't make you sick!
Perhaps tomorrow everyone will want to sleep to noon!

I'm so glad you told me when Amazing Race is on because I was panicing last night! I'll have to DVR it tonight!
By the way you probably have no idea I read your blog but I got hooked when one of my family members emailed me the link you wrote about my Uncle Mark Hale. It was so wonderful and meant so much to us all. Since then I keep coming back because I love how you blog about raising your sweet little girls to be such wonderful Christians one day. It is very encouraging.
