Abby heard his bedroom door close, then asked her mother again, "May we please go to the zoo for my birthday?"
"I thought you said you wanted to go to the circus," Mrs. Smith answered.
"W-well I changed my mind. I would rather see the animals at the zoo."
While they were talking, Abby's mother was fixing dinner. "Shawn, come down here and set the table," said Mrs. Smith.
When Shawn finished setting the table, they all sat down, said grace, and ate dinner.
The next morning they left for the zoo. Shawn decided he would rather try fishing again instead of visiting the zoo.
