Jungle Boogie - Kim Massie

Friday, September 3rd, we were on a search for the Madame Alexander Cinderella doll from the McDonald's Happy Meals. Cinderella was the only one Kaitlynn didn't have. After each McDonald's, Kaitlynn would ask if they had Cinderella. When we would tell her no and she would say "Oh, let's just go home." I tried to talk to her about persistence and not giving up. Then she started saying "Oh, barkos!" or "Oh, bacos!" We had no idea what she was trying to say until several days later when she was saying "Oh, bonkers!" At least I guess that's what she was trying to say because I have never heard of "barkos" or "bacos".

Anyway, I was a big dork and posted about our search on Facebook. One of my FB friends came through! She had an extra one and said Kaitlynn could just have it. Wasn't that sweet?

Dave, Kaitlynn, MawMaw and I went to the Zoo. We got there before Jungle Boogie so we could see more animals. Kaitlynn was so cute! She was walking around the Zoo with her Cinderella heels on. I don't know how she can walk so good in heels. We saw the Red Panda, Prairie Dogs, went to the Bird House and then Big Cat Country.

We met Mike, Cynthia, Annabelle and Alayna at Lakeside Cafe for the kids to eat dinner. Kaitlynn brought Annabelle a pair of dress-up heels, too, but she didn't want to wear them. Annabelle brought Kaitlynn a pair of strawberry sunglasses to match hers. These girls are so sweet to each other, most of the time!

After dinner, we saw the bears and penguins.

Dave rode the carousel with Kaitlynn and Annabelle.

We went to Jungle of the Apes and then sat over by the sea lions to listen to the music. Kaitlynn and Annabelle ran around and played with some other kids.
Not sure if Kaitlynn is dancing, being silly or thinking about doing her karate (hi-ya) kicks.
It ended up being a pretty chilly evening. Glad we had sweaters / jackets! We ran into Teri, Hayden and Quin before leaving. Kaitlynn ran around with Hayden and Quin for a bit before Zoo security started kicking everyone out.

We met Cynthia and her girls at Wendy's for Frosties. We decided that since we (the adults) hadn't had dinner yet, we would go to Denny's. Before going to Denny's we had to make a stop at Jen's to pick up Cinderella! Thanks Jen for saving the day! A Cinderella in the hand is like two in the bush! Kaitlynn didn't put Cinderella down that night. She even slept with her. What a late night!
