My sister and I took Nicholas and the little ones to the Zoo.....by ourselves....without a stroller.....BUT WITH leashes!!! :) It worked out really well, too. I was so impressed that all the little ones really listened well. The girls and boys shared ice cream....we stopped for frequent drink breaks (as it was a 90 degree day!).....and had dinner after we left the Zoo. The little ones didn't want to leave the Zoo....they kept yelling "more animals!"
