I took the kids to the zoo yesterday. Not becuase it sounded particularly fun, but because if we didn't do SOMETHING out of the ordinary, the chances of everyone surviving the day looked far too slim. So we went to the zoo... it was the first thing I could think of really

I knew Allison would love seeing all the animals, and I knew Carter would love the stroller ride part of it (kid loves stroller rides). But I didn't anticipate how much Carter would love seeing all the animals too! He was so excited at every new exhibit. And he tried to climb into most of them too.

Both kids got to pet an elephant too. One of the zoo keepers had an elephant right by the exhibit fence and was walking her up and down the fence so that kids could touch her. Allison thought it was great... Carter thought it was interesting, and then thought that the elephant was too big and too close to him.

All in all, we had a fun day. And better yet, everyone survived the day.

My ODAD has struck again. Its was in remission for a while, but I've replased. I blame Rite Aid... and Huggies. They've been conspiring, I think. Clearancing out mega packs while $3 coupons are available? Definantly a conspiracy.

I don't want to admit how many diapers we have in the house. Lets just say, its alot. Lets just say, that by the time I run out of coupons we might not have to buy diapers again for the rest of the year. And I'm not exaggerating.

If you need diapers, find a Rite Aid near you. Price check the mega packs. All of them... Pampers, Huggies, Luvs... are apparently on clearance, but they may not marked. They should ring up at $8.99. Grab 3... Use this $5/$25 purchse coupon, and any brand coupons you may have. If you happen to like Huggies, use three $3 coupons from here (sort by "Household") and here (print each one twice from every computer you can get your hands on!) If you get 3 Huggies and use 3 of the coupons plus the $5 coupon, you'll pay $12.97 plus tax for 3 MEGA packs... thats only $4.32 per pack! I normally get excited seeing that price on Jumbo packs!
Okay... coupon TMI over.

Funny, but only because it's true.

I think someone's been spying on me...
