One Giant Leap for the Lachmann Family! Today was a big day for us. Will had the day off for our state's primary, so I took the five kids to the zoo. We've been to the zoo dozens of times, but this time was different. Look at this picture...
What do you see? Or more to the point, what don't you see?
No stroller, no wagon. That's right, free-range kids!!
We met up with Joanna and her girls.
Here are all of the kids (minus Ellie who was in her stroller.)
Izzie, Julia, Will, Paige, Drew and Alex on a crocodile.
Or is it an alligator? I have no idea how to distinguish the two...
Will, Paige and Izzie watching a peacock.
Julia playing in the turtle shell in the children's zoo.
Overall the kids did a great job. They held hands and stayed together. I was quite anxious the whole time, but hopefully this will get easier and easier for me as we do more and more without any restraints of any sort. I know the kids love the freedom. Big bonus-- super tired kids after walking the hills of the Cincinnati zoo all day!
