We haven't done "the zoo" in a long time, too long.
We went plenty of times when the older guys were young; but as they matured, they became interested in other things. Having boys so spread out in age (17 down to 3), does create an interesting dynamic in our household, but I wouldn't change it for the world. I just want to make sure that the little ones are not "short-changed"; and honestly, I love having little boys to take on these type of outings once again!
It's gonna be a GREAT day!
I know this pic and the next one are rather redundant, but I LOVE how my boys love each other.
First animal sighting of the day - flamingos.
I am pretty sure this was the highlight of the day for Luke (but remember, he is NOT a birder;).
Even before arriving at the zoo, I decided that I would NOT get caught up in taking pictures of every.single. animal... haven't we seen them all... but that I would keep my eye out for anything out of the ordinary.
This cub kept pestering her Momma who just wanted to rest...
Salad - yum!
I tried over and over to catch both of these "hatchlings" looking at me...
Two of our favorite birds
Just monkeying around
My boys LOVE back rubs too.
What an awesome big brother!
We had fun trying to find everything in the reptile house.
Not a bad ride!
