Today’s tour club meeting was at the Wildlife in Need Center. We learned about the organization (they are awesome! and treat 2,000 to 3,000 wild animals a year) and got to meet some of their ambassadors (animals that can’t be released back into the wild). I was most impressed with the owl, but Alex loved the snakes. Asher and Alex even got to watch the snake eat his dinner (yuck!).
After nap we enjoyed the awesome weather. Sam, Abram, and Alex took turns bouncing between the parachute launcher and playing in the dirt.
Short story: While at the center this morning, Alex asked for a stuffed animal on the way out. The funds help the center so we picked out a hedgehog for Wade (one of his favorite animals). We talked about it the car and decided to name him. I suggested Amos and Alex countered with “Amos McGee”. It took me a few minutes to connect that with one of the books we love – “A Sick Day for Amos McGee“. We ended up meeting Wade for lunch and Alex would talk about nothing but the new lovey for Daddy. He even went so far as to tuck him into Daddy’s bed for a nap when we got home.
