A Day at the Zoo
Yesterday afternoon we took the kids to a toy store near our apartment. Garrett got some action figures, Karina picked out a stuffed Tigger and Ariel doll, and Cassidee chose a stuffed Winnie the Pooh and a different Ariel doll. Karina especially loves her Tigger. She carries it around hugging it all the time.
Today we took the kids to the zoo. It only cost $6 US to get all 5 of us in. Leah wondered how they could care for all the animals with such a low entrance fee. We quickly realized that it is because they do not care for the animals. PETA would have a stroke if they saw some of the conditions the animals were in. We took a few pictures while we were there. The girls had fun on some of the rides they had inside. They got to ride on a horse and pony. We are sure it was probably their first time on a horse. It made for a very fun and tiring day.
We should get passports tomorrow which means we will take the train to Kiev. The girls are really excited to ride on the train! Once in Kiev we will then do mandatory US Doctor check-ups for the girls, visas, and other business.
Our lawyer found us some even better airfares. We now will go from Kiev to Prague, New York, then to SLC. We will not be getting in until around 11:00 pm on Wednesday 9/19. We can’t wait to see everyone.
