Let's go to the zoo!

And "Mother of the Year" award goes to...Me!! Poor little guy, just wanted to take a nap. This is what happens when I blog during the day. lol

Saturday we decided to take advantage of another beautiful weekend and head to the Woodland Park Zoo. The weather here this year has been so beautiful aka dry! I think the past month every weekend has been sunny and in the 60's and we are LOVING it!! I definitely haven't gotten stir crazy like I did last year around this time. Some people may attribute the beautiful weather to "global warming," but I personally attribute it to all our prayers and fasting that the dam wouldn't break on the Henry Hudson and flood the valley. The Lord works in mysterious ways I tell you!! And I'm not complaining one bit. :)

So anyway, we headed to the zoo with our friends the Burkman's and had a great time. We only got to about 1/4 of the zoo (it's HUGE!), but luckily we have passes to go back whenever we want. Brooklyn's favorite part she said were the elephants, and they were amazing! My favorite part was the jaguar. And Troy's favorite parts were the squirrels and seagulls. 'Cause we can't see those in our own back-yard right?! I can't wait to go back and take them to the petting zoo area. They will LOVE IT!! What did YOU do this weekend?

Love the Woodland Park Zoo! Do they still have the pony riding arena? Carmen loved this when she was 3 or so. The butterfly attraction is also very cool! So glad you have passes!

So fun! I want to take Annie to the zoo in Boise when while we're there for the reunion. Can't wait to see you guys!

Hi Marcie...found your blog via the Burkmans. What did we do last weekend? Yardwork, yardwork, yardwork! Not as fun as the zoo, but we enjoy doing it together.

Seth loves the elephants too. We went last summer on a HOT day, and he still talks about the elephants "taking a shower in the garage" when the zookeepers took them inside and hosed them off. :-)
