So next on our CRAZY adventure we were off to the Zoo.  Last Christmas Gma Net gave us all zoo passes, as we all like to go to the zoo, and often too.  So I head out with my 4 bundles of crazy joy to join my sister-in-law and her 3 kiddos, mother-in-law and father-in-law (what?) and 3 of my other nieces and nephew, and my OTHER sister-in-law and her son plus spouse (what, hubbies were invited?) .

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...
