Zoo Day

Sometimes I feel we live in a zoo with our three little ones & the sweet chaos that is our lives. But today, we went to the REAL zoo.

It was great. Rob took off work & we had great family time. The two animals the kids talked about in the car on the way there were the lion and the bear. Unfortunately, the Dallas Zoo didn't have either of those. But, the kids quickly forgot as we started seeing the exhibits. The first one was the African Penguins.

Cobb helped Ridge see

We got a great view of the gorilla. He stared at us while eating.

Then, to my boys' surprise, he stood up and "showed his booty."

One of the best parts of the zoo was climbing on the statues.


And then we road the monorail:

Ridge was crazy!

He would not sit still. His favorite part was playing peek a boo with the baby in the next car.


Lunch break!

Then we ran into the Howells on our way into the Children's zoo. Sweet Grace & Cobb hanging on top of the rock.


BIG FISH!

Playing in the water. . .

Crazy Ridge hanging with Daddy.

Karate Kid. . .

Climbing on the giant spider web. . .

And then we finished off with a carousel ride & a trip to McDonalds for ice cream. Full day! We all fell asleep on the way home.

Including Rob & me :)
