The Zoo

I've felt like a terrible mom since Kanyon has only been to the zoo once and he was younger than Scarlett is now when I took him. :P So, on a whim Saturday morning, Steve and I decided that the Zoo was just the thing to do that day with the kids. It was cool, but not rainy, so we took advantage of it. Here is just a bit of our day.

We saw elephants.



Ate lunch by the Zebras.

Saw Giraffes... and Scarlett was mystified because this is exactly the same giant animal that's in her nursery. ;) She couldn't have been more excited to see them!

A leopard that was pacing.
Kanyon pretty over the animals and dying to ride the train...
A camel.
Ahh, the train at last.

It was a fun day! Although Steve and I were so tired when we got home, we were sad that the kids slept in the car because we needed naps too. ;)

Don't feel too bad. The Zoo if fun and all, but sometimes a bit too much! Abby only seems to last for an hour (looking at the animals) then she gets bored and just wants to play at the playground. Looks like you guys had a great time! Those little whims we get sometimes as parents are the best! :)
