We went to the zoo with a lady from church who recently became licensed as a respite care foster home. We're hoping to occasionally have her provide respite care for our foster daughters. This was an opportunity for her to get to know them. We didn't expect it to be so snowy that day. In spite of the snow, the kids had a great time. The zoo had lots of special events to celebrate Chinese New Year. Apparently it is the year of the rabbit, so there were lots of rabbit crafts to make. All the kids got temporary tattoos and watched the dragon dancers perform a dance inside of giant dragon costumes. It was nice, for once, to have an extra adult available to take a photo of our whole family while we were there. The kids all liked KaraMae a lot. It was a cold, fun day.
