what a fun day at the zoo!

Since my hubby's schedule is all over the place, this is one of the perks...a zoo trip during the week! My husband asked the boys if they wanted to go to the zoo yesterday and their answer could be heard throughout the neighborhood...YESSSS!!! Then Jacob asked if he could bring his buddy, Luke. Of course we said YES! (I admit it was sad, because he's old enough to ask for friends to come along...why is he growing so fast?!)
It was the perfect day, about 80 degrees, sunny and breezy! Doesn't get much better than that!
This was my first zoo trip with my new camera, so I made all three of these boys stop for pictures A LOT :) As you can see, these silly boys didn't seem to mind-
they kept yelling, CHEESE!!












This might have been the MOST precious thing ever! Justin LOVED the petting zoo. When we went to Oil Ranch a while back, he loved it too but this time was TOO precious! He was talking to the goats, asking them questions-adorable! Take a look...


















It was a fun, family trip and it was wonderful having Luke there with us! Makes me sad because his Mom and I used to bring the boys to the zoo when they were so small and now they're big boys, they see the zoo completely different than before...its cute but I miss those baby boys!
And Justin, well he LOVES the zoo. We'll have to definitely go more often now that he's getting bigger. Some of the favorites of all three boys: the elephants, okapi(didn't know what this was until Luke told me!!), sea lions, and of course the petting zoo! Oh and can't forget the train ride throughout the park! Justin is ALL about trains, he kept hearing it all day so when it was finally time to ride, he was soooo excited :)
Thanks for all of your sweet comments on our new flooring,
we're super happy with it and it means a lot that you all think its nice too :)

What a fun day trip! Your pictures are really awesome, and I think it's so cute that Justin had so much to say to the goat, lol! Can I be jealous that you have 80 degree weather? Because it's 20 degrees today, and it's going to be below 0 tonight!

The zoo is our favorite destination as well. We go once a week and more if my husband is free. Love the pictures. What kind of camera did you get? Aren't those new toys just about the best ever?

Love the last picture!! The zoo is one of our favorite places too. Even as an adult I get just as excited as Addison does to go to the zoo :-)

Love the zoo! I have a million pics of the boys on that elephant!!!

The wedding we went to was at Ashtan Villa (I think that's how you spell it). It was nice, it's the second one we've been to there. We're actually planning on having a wedding in a year and are looking for a place somewhere around here. If ya find or go to any that are cool let me know!!!
