I was up all night (Thursday) packing for our next move to Barcelona (I’m not done). I finally closed my eyes around 5:50 a.m Friday, only to wake up at 9 am to get children ready for the zoo. As usual, I was very tired. But who goes on vacation to sleep? Today was the children’s day. They’ve been looking forward to the zoo all week. So we had to go. I didn’t mind. I love to see them get excited about things. Ohhhh Boy, did they ever have a good time!!!!! Bioparco Zoo was awesome. It had more than 1000 animals to keep all of our interests. The zoo was not crowded at all, surprisingly. They were able to explore at their leisure. They wanted to touch and see everything. You know they had to chase peacocks, ducks, chicken, butterflies etc…….. Of course we had pizza and ice cream for lunch. We took a ride on a four wheeled bike from zoo to metro (about 15 minutes). The children were ecstatic. Janel could not stop smiling. She kept saying, “This is really cool!” “Wow!” The bike was just an unexpected surprise. The walk from the zoo to metro was going to be over 50 minutes with three tired children. Christopher and I were tired as well. Between the two of us, we would have to carry the little ones most of the way. So the bike passed by right on time. As parents, you then try to act as if that was the plan all along…..lol. NOT!! Today was simply marvelous…..easy ! We still had to have dinner and I needed to organize for our departure. I tried my hardest to get children in bed by 10:30 p.m. We were flying out to Barcelona the next morning (Saturday).
