Today was zoo day!!! WOOT! By 10 am we were on our way down the highway to meet with some of the kids relatives. :)
- 1/3 cup USVAB & water
- 1/3 cup PC 5 grain oats
- hemp seeds
- almond butter
This deliciousness comprised of 1 frozen banana and chopped walnuts was my snack of choice while watching SYTYCD. Heaven, except that I’m now out of bananas. :(
Back to today! We hit some traffic on the way so a 1.5 hour drive turned into 2. You can pretty much plan on catching highway congestion coming across Toronto these days. We arrived about 12:30 and pulled our packed lunch out to eat before heading into the park. I packed myself a sunflower seed butter/strawberry banana jam sammie on WW….
Hehe! The Toronto Zoo is pretty massive and usually takes us a good 5 hours to walk. We skipped the bear/wolf area today because it’s rare to see the wolves out and the bear really doesn’t do much. We still walked for 4 hours before stopping at the splash pad so the kids could cool off a bit. Here are some of the animals that we came across…
This guy here is a red panda!
We took a few family shots…
The drive home was even more trying than the one there! I lost count of how many accidents and tow trucks I saw along the highway! A lot of people are not starting their long weekend out on a very good foot! We finally got home just after 7pm and threw a quick dinner together. The fam had eggs, toast and the leftover cod and I threw together a wrap stuffed with pepper jack cheese, leftover chicken and salsa that I warmed up in a dry pan. On the side was the rest of the sautéed zucchini from a few night ago.
Now I’m going to put my feet up and catch up on all your blogs. I want to extend a warm welcome to all the new readers that have been commenting lately!!! “HI!” I love seeing new readers because it gives mw even more awesome blogs to check out.
Not sure what, if anything, is on the agenda for tomorrow. It will depend on the weather most of all! Hope you’ve all had a good Friday….see ya tomorrow!
Bye for now!!
