We wandered around the zoo, seeing what you see at the zoo, and enjoying the nice summer morning. We rode the train, rode the carousel and really had a good time. My kids love the zoo. They don't like to stay in one place for very long, so thank goodness we have a pass. We ended up only staying for about an hour and a half.
Z-man gets this look a lot when his sisters are holding him.
Baby Zuri-the hit of the zoo.
The last time we all went, we saw the baby giraffe and then it died a few days later. I hope we are not bad luck!
Diva actually took this picture.
I forgot my real camera so all of this pictures are with my cell phone. Plus, I am not a photographer. I am the reason photographers have a job.
Now it's off to shopping. Every year we go to the zoo, then out to lunch, then on to shopping. Gma Net buys every grandchild who will be starting school a new school outfit. It's a fun tradition for all, but especially a generous tradition from the grandparents. The kids all got darling clothes and Gpa Roger was especially grateful to be there (I am saying that with sarcasm.) He was a trooper helping watch all the kids, though. However, he said next year he was going on a loooooonnng horse ride. Rog, that's why Trevor NEVER comes. He finds something to do on that day.
Then, after we are all finished shopping I let my kids run through the "fountain" and get sopping wet-clothes and all. It's always hot when we go, so this is their reward for enduring to the end.
Thanks grandma and grandpa. Until next year...
