My mom uses that expression, "tuckered out". Her mom used to say it too. It describes a child that has fully exerted themselves in play to the point of exhaustion. "Tuckered out" is the best way to describe my boys tonight. Caden was so tired that he just cried as if he didn't know what to do when he was in his bed. Max seems to get hurt more frequently when he's tired and Conrad cries easily when he's tired. You can imagine what our house sounded like an hour before the boys went to bed!
Today we went on a big boy adventure.

Today we had a special trip with cousins. We met them at the zoo and got to see quite a few animals. I think the penguins were my favorites this trip. The best moment was Max's sheer excitement when he proclaimed, "Mommy, I found Nemo!!" Sure enough, he did. We cooled off at the splash pad. I didn't even know our zoo had this, but on a 95 degree day, what an awesome find! Kudos to my sister-in-law for this discovery. Max refers to his cousins as his friends. It is a special gift to have one person be both friend and family to you.
