I'll be there with my three kids (2,4,6) and since I am unimaginative, I'll bring green bean casserole.

well, as of right now I am not sure if we are going to make it. After driving all weekend with 4 whiney kids in the van, I'm not sure if I want to do it all again next weekend. If I do, it will be a last minute decision and I will bring something like chips that I can pick up at the last minute.

I did a drive by the zoo, there are a lot of picnic tables and some random grills. Tables by the grills were packed. I'm not sure if it's a BYOCharcoal - probably. I'm game for coldcuts too. Too bad we can't all get a Subway shop on the way in!

mmmm, nummy,

I made a run to the store at lunch. I bought light yellow table covers, plastic eating utensils, divided plates, cups and a blue star metalic balloon. I will try to get to the zoo a little early to snag tables near the entrance to set up. Hopefully you can find me with yellow tables and a blue star balloon.

I'll know for sure tomorrow and update this thread then.

Anyone know if Theresa had to be evacuated because of the explosion in her neck of the woods?

what explosion?

Extra note: If gas hits $2.62/gallon I'm not coming. Too expensive, as that's a full tank round trip.

It was just on the yahoo news page. Now I don't see it.

Apparently an explosion at a recycle plant in Roscommon caused a huge evacuation.
