The Saginaw Zoo
Yesterday, the Websters and Smiths visited us for our monthly dinner. The boys went golfing, while the girls plus Jackson went to the Saginaw Zoo. What a great little zoo! Not a lot of exotic animals--there were monkeys, farm animals, kangaroos, a python, and a butterfly garden--but perfect for little ones. Jackson and Sydney enjoyed the zoo train, the carousel, and the playground. Also, I tried out the baby backpack that a friend gave me hand-me-down, and it worked out really well. Jackson enjoyed being up high but close to me, and we didn't have to fight over being in the stroller.
For our dinner, I chose to try out a recipe from Family Circle, "Rich Squash Casserole", and it was delicious! I definitely recommend it. I doubled it, and it was wonderful.
