Trip to the Zoo

 Some of our friends invited us to the zoo yesterday. It was chilly out and fortunately I was prepared with hats and jackets. Thank goodness for that. It looked so beautiful outside, I nearly left without them. It's Spring Break here so the zoo was, well a "zoo." Not only were the hats warm, but they helped me keep track of my little ones in the crowds.
Here they are. Each of them refusing to look at the camera.

My children would not pose for photos, but some sweet baby animals did.  We got to see the baby elephant
baby and mama
and we got to see the baby giraffe as well. 
I love that you can see how tall this little one is from the numbers on the wall.
There is something so sweet about those ginormous babies.

Buddy and Jellybean had a great time running around and making me push an empty stroller.
They completely wore themselves out. I had to tickle Jellybean all the way home to keep her awake in the car. To keep Buddy awake, we sang Old McDonald's Spooky Farm (i.e. and on that farm he had a ghost...) and The Wheels on the Haunted Bus (i.e. the zombies on the bus say "Brains"). We don't do sleeping in the car right before nap time. So, I'll do whatever it takes.

I love these trips out.  Hopefully, this will be a fun memory for them in the coming years.

Have a Happy Day!
