I love it when my kids invite me along on an outing with their kids!
A trip to the zoo is fun so many ways: watching my grandchildren as they interact – or don't! -- with animals they don't see regularly, watching my kids as they parent their kids, remembering trips to the zoo we took when they were small themselves, and, of course, watching the animals themselves!
We've gone hiking, shopping, to the zoo, to the state fair, to various programs and sporting events with our kids and their kids – it's always interesting and fun to be included this way.
We provide an extra pair of hands and eyes, the kids provide the fun!
