Trip to the Zoo

Picture Warning! There's ALOT in this post.

Thanks to a phone call from Mario's Brother, we took a trip to the zoo. Moses and Judah's first trip to see the animals. (No, we don't count China's zoo. We enjoyed the pandas but looking at chickens and raccoons in a cage just doesn't compare to what we have here in the states.) Seeing the zoo through the wonder and amazement of little ones again made it a new experience for all of us.

I think Moses could have watched the ants for hours. :)

My great niece, Bella, is in the back of the egg. Isn't she sweet?

My great nephew, another cutie!

Giving Uncle Richie the 'rock'.

The baby elephant was one of Moses' favorites. Can you see it in his eyes?

My biggies were so patient with all the animal watching. Especially considering it was nearly 100 degrees the day we were there. Having friends with us helped our attitudes.

It didn't take long, however, for boredom to set in. I mean, how many animals can you see in one day?

Two of my most favorite people in the whole world. My BFF with her hubby. Thanks for coming on our impromptu trip. Lynnette, you can pay me later for not posting the 'pretty' pictures of you cooling off. No, I am not above blackmailing you. Maybe you should pick your friends better.

Judah's excitement level picked back up with the last visit of the day, the monkeys.

Heat aside, we had a great time with friends and family. Lynnette, the check better be in the mail. :)


  1. oh, I'd love to get to your house @ 9 on Monday, just post those pics sister! :o

  2. It was SOOOO hot that day, but SOMEONE wanted to get their $5 for parking's worth.
