Yesterday, we went to Turtle Back Zoo. We started on the train for the first time they were able to sit in their own seats and not on our laps. They LOVED IT. We went to the pony rides but only Cormac rode the pony. Strange because Ciaran is obsessed with horses but wouldn't go on. Colin wanted to go but he wanted me with him and I was not allowed. Next we headed to the new bird aviary. IT WAS AMAZING! Hundreds of birds (mostly parkeets) and it was all enclosed. You can buy feed sticks and the birds land on the sticks. Ciaran, Colin and Cormac thought it was a hoot! They were smiling from ear to ear and laughing like crazy. I took some pics and videos but am having problems uploading. (I finally got a new camera thanks to my mom. It's an awesome camera and she got it for nothing. We thought it was a scam but it turned out to be true. Wait til you see how nice the pictures came out)
Anyway, next we headed to the carosel. Ciaran wouldn't ride it so Frank stayed with him. I took Cormac and Colin and they just were so happy. At that point the boys were exhausted and we headed home.
Here is a little slideshow of the birds. You will see how much they loved it

Later we went to Verona Park and fed the ducks and played on the playground. By the time we finished they were asking to go to bed! ALl was quiet until 7:30am! Yeah for Mommy! Extra sleep.
