The Zoo: Part One Of A Three Part Series

So, we went to the zoo. The African exhibit was closed so we didn't get to see African animals, but we did get a dollar off admission per ticket, sadly the money I saved went to renting a wagon (since I forgot to pack a stroller).
The kids had such a great time. Hazel brought her purse with her. She had a piece of paper so she could take notes. She listed her top 5 favorite animals, her feelings about the day, and a plan for coming back. (She is a mini Mary Morgan-so organized) I had a hard time keeping up with Thomas. He had his usual perma-grin on. I think Violet liked the ride in the wagon the best. She would step out to see whatever it was we were looking at, then straight back in and ready for the next animal. And Atticus LOVED the animals, especially the cute furry ones.
They loved the little play area. We had a hard time dragging them away. Well, everyone except Atticus. He only wanted to go down the slide once, for some reason.
videoOverall, a great day. I forgot how much I liked the zoo, and spending time with my kids.

Ahh, good family time.

If Atticus comes up missing--don't come looking at my house. Seriously, that boy is off the charts cute!!

The video won't work for me. Zoo's are RAD.

Yeah, I couldn't get the video to work either. Could still be that hex. You guys are cute.

Oh, and I totally can't wait for part 2. You really should hurry it up!

You look so natural in that turtle shell. So, are Atticus and Violet brother and sister? Do people ask you that all the time? I have never seen such opposite looking kids in one family (besides my own). The only thing they have in common is their extreme cuteness.

(ditto on the video not working)

Looks like you all had fun. So are you guys staying in Boise for good?

Memzy said...

I tried again and BINGO-BAMMO. It was worth it. Definitely worth it.
