Family Circus- Day 4

What a day!
We did "4 things" all day... but those 4 things lasted from morning until bedtime.
First... The Train...
Living in a big city means public transportation. Since Jeremiah and Kaelyn are huge fans of Thomas the Train, we couldn't resist taking them on it.
They got to put their tickets into the turnstiles and everything! Second...Central MarketWe took the train to Central Market. It's where you can buy all the "cultural" type things (as opposed to Chinatown which offers a wide-range of "Original Copies" of everyone's favorite brand names- Gucci, Prada, Polo, etc) My mom found some bowls made of cinnamon tree-bark (they smell like cinnamon!) and Heather bought a pashmina shawl.After taking the train to the twin towers for lunch (and Mama and Zach buying cheap prescription glasses and contacts:) we headed out of the city...
Sorry couldn't resist posting this pic...Adrienne's pigtails look so cute! The kids took naps on the way to our 3rd stop...MONKEYS!
There's a place that's unofficially a "monkey park"We had a great time feeding the monkeys.
But the locals thought Adrienne's red hair and fair skin were more interesting! People kept taking pictures of her!
The monkey park is up on a hill overlooking the straits... there's a lighthouse and everything up there... its got a great view!After sunset we headed over to the firefly park and saw the fireflies. They were as twinkling and neat as ever and everyone enjoyed them (this time we didn't try to take any pictures... we learned our lesson the first time... you can't catch them on camera!)
What a fun day!

You might have mentioned this before, but do you have to cover your hair when you are out in public?

Yay! An update on your site and Heather's! I am getting spoiled! :-) I love the pigtails on Adrienne! I can't wait to do that with Eden! The train ride, fireflies and the monkey park all look super fun! Poor Adrienne, getting all that attention! How funny! It reminded me of that time you guys were suddenly in a wedding- your family is just too famous! Anyways, I can't wait to see more pics- are you guys gonna take some of the cousins together?

A monkey park and a firefly park all in the same day! This wildlife biologist is a little bit jealous.
