Big and I had a few spare moments today before the hubub of Eight's last day of school sucked up our time into its own wild vortex today and we chose to spend them at a little retreat from urban life in the middle of the city.
He ran down the paths screaming FOREST! FOREST!, fawned over the little toad that we found, tempted fate by swinging on the ropes along the bridge overlooking the lake, reported seeing Giraffes!Hyenas! and Gorillas! to anyone who would listen, worried about potential bats and spiders in said forest (Too scary!) and fought leaving when it was time to go.
