We took a family mini-trip over the weekend. We went to the zoo! Some days it feels like I live in the zoo, but this was so much more fun! Little Miss is fascinated with "monkeys" (and she even climbs like one at 2 years old!), so it was nice to see the new gorilla forest they had. She couldn't get enough of them, even with the crowd they had. And it was cute to see the baby curled up with his (or her) blankie in this picture. The kids were able to get up close to see him (or her).
Ray Ray got to see his favorite animal too, the buffalo (bison)! He was so happy to be able to get right up to the fence and watch them eat the grass. You can tell the weather is finally getting warmer here, as the bison were starting to shed their winter coats. They didn't look "pretty", but to a 4 year old, they were perfect!! And yes, we spent a lot of time at this exhibit!!
Big Kid enjoyed himself, but the pictures of him are far and few between…he just doesn't want his picture taken. He must be getting older, although I am not quite ready for that!
It was a fun filled day and we enjoyed it! I was glad to be able to spend some time with Daddy before he had to go back to work, and the kids enjoyed it also!!
