Win, Win Kind of Situation

Jeanie interrupted my lap swimming to invite me to fill in the extra seat at their table for the St. Teresa's Trivia Night fundraiser. At least I had made it an exact mile before I sprinted home, changed, dropped some items for my kid at my mother's and headed to my high school Alma Mater for some trivia fun. While there, I enjoyed a great dinner consisting of tortilla roll-ups, Cheetos and veggies.
2nd Place Winning Team
I think we realized the key to winning this trivia was to have a trans-generational team. Jeanie's father and friend took care the questions prior to the 1980's while we picked up the slack in the more current affairs. Though I have to give Big Joe some credit, and name him MVP. I should have been the Science and Nature queen - but turns out, sometimes knowing too much is detrimental. Umm, the "funny bone" is not a bone at all and is in fact due to the Ulnar Nerve and Calcium Carbonate is Tums, chalk, give me a break. We ended up in 2nd place despite these technicalities and won a whopping $200 divided between the 8 of us - you do the math.
Also, my sister and I took advantage of a cloudy, with a chance of rain type day to take the boys to the zoo. I love the zoo, only when it's below 85 though. This is for more than just my comfort - animals hate the blazing heat as well and do nothing but hide in the shade or lie around in the dirt. Also, small children tend to get a bit cranky, therefore this turned out to be quite a nice afternoon. Even with Brock and his "Summer cold".
We bought the boys matching wagon t-shirts from Old Navy, specifically with a zoo adventure in mind. And we were surprisingly coordinated. What adorable cousins!
