Memorial Day Weekend - it was a whirlwind of driving despite $4/gallon gas!
First we had to deal with a flat tire as we pulled out from the house. Alex liked the video games at the truck stop. Then we drove to Philly to have lunch with Alicia. Then it was on to Wilmington to visit Toots and Poppie. Alex had fun playing with all the Matchbox cars Toots had kept - some were from 1969 and 1971 and in very good condition. Alex decided to put them in his shirt. We walked around the lake and saw tadpoles in the water. Then we went to the Brandywine Zoo and got to see them feed the otters hunks of meat. Alex read his new truck book from Toots on the way home.
