July 18, 2018: We went to the zoo with grammie and papa today. They have so many things to see and do there. Papa says you can’t see it all in one day. That is true. It’s clear to me that the only possible solution is that we need to buy a zoo. Daddy could play with the otters all day. Fin could pet the lions and never gave to get off the carousel. I told mommy she could cuddle the baby elephants, but she said we can’t afford it. I’m beginning to think that’s just code for, “go ask papa.” Maybe papa and grampa could go halfsies. Grampa has always wanted a hippopotamus for Christmas.
