I had the day off today. Too many of my days off are spent on cruddy housework and such. I promised Ivy that today we would get out and do something together. I picked her up from school and we went to the Aviary. My husband talked me into getting a membership a while back. I am so glad he did! It's such a lovely place to visit. I love birds and wildlife so it is so extraordinary to get up close and personal with the Avian kind. Each species is an inspiration in color! It's a great place for kids and it's not so big that we have to use up a whole day there. Ivy knows the place inside and out by now thanks to all of our visits. Today she spent 15 minutes examining a bird that was almost as tall as her. It let her get very close. She was fascinated and so was I. Haha.
After that, we went to visit "Mum Mum Patty" at the Tearoom. I can't think of anything I enjoy more than having lunch with Ivy there. She's so well-behaved for a 4-year-old. I am not just saying that because I'm her mom, I swear!!!
Here are a couple of photos and a video of our adventures:
