|On the train at the zoo|
During our Christmas trip to Florida, the kids got to spend some good quality time with all their grandparents. I was very thankful we able to make time for everyone.
We visited the Central Florida Zoo
with Grandma Darlyne on Tuesday. We were all impressed with the herpeterium which housed a King Cobra
among other slithering serpents
. We all ended the trip with a ride on the kiddy train. Our membership
to the NC Zoo
got us all in free - gotta love that!
Wednesday, we met Grandma Theresa (their great grandmother) in Altamonte where we watched a marionette puppet show of the Little Drummer Boy. This was a first for me and I really enjoyed it. Kudos to Pinocchio's Marionette Theatre
at the Altamonte Mall
for providing such a classic, yet unique venue for kids.

The next afternoon, Boompah joined us for a trip to the Orlando Science Center
. Again we got in free there with our membership
to the Durham Museum of Life and Sciences
is Jonah playing at being a meteorologist. They had several life size castings of dinosaur skeletons and one animatronic T-rex. All four of us stepped into a hurricane tunnel - I couldn't stop giggling during this, but Elisabeth was more than ready to exit the experience.
The day after Christmas, we went with Grandma Theresa to see her mom, Grandma Margaret - the kids great-great-grandmother.
