Everret spent over forty five minutes trying to wrestle his boys into their clothes. These two were so full of energy and could be very tiresome for one person to handle. Thankfully though, he wasn't handling it alone. He still lived with his parents right now in order to ensure that his boys were looked after when he went to school. Ben and Gabriel for pretty happy today, especially since Everret had told them that he was taking them to the zoo. The twins loved animals and Everret had been wanting to take them for some time. He shook his head as he smiled to himself. He pulled Bent's jacket on and then reached for his own. Once he had it on, he headed towards the door as his sons followed. They squealed with delight as they raced for the car. Everret strapped them in and got in himself. He pulled out of his driveway and headed towards Myrtle Edwards Park where the Woodland Park Zoo resided.
Finally reaching it, he parked his car and helped his boys out. They looked up at him expectantly before he spoke, "Alright knuckleheads," he said as he addressed them. "You two have to be on your best behavior or I won't be able to take you places." he said as he ruffled each boys hair in turn. "Got it?" he asked, the twins nodded almost in unison and smiled at him before each took one of his hands. They milled around for a while before they came to rest on the tigers. Both of the boys were completely enthralled. "Tigger!" Gabe squealed slightly, Everret laughed and hoisted them up onto the barred seat a few feet away from the cages. "Tiger." he told them, "Looks like tigger though doesn't it?" he asked as he watched his boys watch the animals. It was times like this that he really missed Cassidy, they looked so much like her, he breathed a small, almost wounded sigh.
