The Zoo

Monday the boys were off of school for MLK day. My mom, sister and her two kiddos came down for all of us to go to the zoo. First I went to the store to buy some snacks and to pick up some pizza to eat before we left. We got half a mile from the zoo and that's when we hit the traffic. There was construction going on and plus it was free to get into the zoo that day so it was crazy packed. Well needless to say it took us an hour and 45 minutes to get to the zoo entrance.

It was the first time for Evan to go to the zoo. All the kids had a blast. We saw the elephants, monkeys, and bears. The big exhibit was Jonathan the Lion. I kept making my Jonathan take pictures with the Jonathan the lion signs. He loved me for that. What 13 year old boy wouldn't?

Then we saw this statue of a monkey and my boys thought it was hilarious. I think it was a boy thing!

Evan loved the meerkat exhibit. He thought they were little puppies running around. He was cracking up laughing and saying "pup, pup"!

Then we had to keep getting onto the kids because they kept climbing on all the statues and trees.

I guess you could say they were acting like they belonged in the zoo!

  2. Your boys are beautiful! I just have one & I can't imagine having FOUR! Girl, you have your hands full! ;)

  3. The zoo is a perfect place for boys, all that climbing around and monkeying around. ;) I love the zoo. I can't wait until summer to take the kiddos! :)

  4. I can't believe you are outside without coats. I wish it was warm here. We still have snow from Christmas :(
