Living with a Bunch of Animals

So far, the kids and I have managed to keep busy this summer and can you believe it? We're almost at the midway mark. We're halfway through and I'm still sane. But, earlier this month, I did a not so sane thing. I took all three kids to Serengeti Bush Camp; a one night stay at the Metro Toronto Zoo. 

We had a walking tour of the African Savannah where we enjoyed a behind the scenes look at the rhinos (who we later 'had dinner with'). At dusk, we scampered around doing a scavenger hunt. And after finishing our night off with songs and stories by the campfire, we followed a moonlit path to where we would lay our tired little heads for the night. Then there was nothing between us and nature but the canvas of a Nairobi safari tent!

All three kids had a blast, but being the animal lover that he is, Carter was particularly in his glory. And now that I'm caught up on my sleep, I can happily admit that it was tons of fun, something we will always remember.

We've been home from the zoo for some time now, so why is it that I still feel like I'm living with a bunch of animals? Ah well, Hakuna Matata!
