|it wasn't until we were on the way home that I figured out I had Clara's hat on wrong all day...the little straps come through little holes on the side of the brim...ooops...motherhood fail.|
We took Clara to the zoo in Syracuse this past weekend (great little zoo by the way!). It was sunny and warm out. I wore a wide brimmed hat while we were walking around the zoo - something I'm pretty sure I NEVER would have done as a younger lady...I would have felt silly...not fashionable...and I would have ended up with an even frecklier face and possibly a sunburn.
Lemme tell you...that hat was a life saver. I didn't care that I was the only female under 50 rocking a sun hat! It kept me SHADED...which was AMAZING. No sunburns. No over-heating. No complaining to my husband about the sun beating down on my skin. No running from shade source to shade source.
I think I've found my new summer outdoor activity accessory. And not just for the beach! Are you a hat person?
|the monkeys are always a hit - moments after this was taken Clara laid herself on the ground to take a nap...lovely.|
|the penguins were social and flirty - Clara became fast friends with this little guy|
