We're goin' to the zoo... zoo... zoo...

(I've had that tune stuck in my head since last night!)

We made our first trip of the year to the zoo today. It was seriously the perfect zoo day. It wasn't too hot or too cold... and it wasn't super crowded. The animals were out and about doing their thing. And most importantly, the kids did great! We met Castara, Kadin and Ashton there, and all four of the boys had a great time. Jack, Brayden and Kadin mostly just walked while Castara and I pushed the (mostly) empty strollers.

In this photo the boys are watching the seals... who were swimming laps around their pool and then kind of jumping out and doing belly flops. They watched and cracked up for quite awhile, and probably would have stayed to watch longer!

Other highlights from the day include the usual train ride, the baby giraffe, the elephants throwing dirt on themselves, an appearance from the lions, and a leopard who (according to Jack) REALLY likes kids!

OK, so I thought I was the only one on the face of the planet who knew that song!! (now it's stuck in my head) My boys think I'm crazy when I sing it.

You can come too, too, too....:)

Looks like fun!

So we are contemplating buying a pass for the zoo. Do you guys have a year pass?? I think it would be a good way to get out of the house during my short time off work.
