finally... the zoo

i kicked caleb out of his "nap room" so that i could finally get these pictures up as promised. sorry it has taken so long.... you don't even want to know what our schedule has looked like the last 10 days. however, despite it all.... here are the zoo pics. as a refresher - we went to the zoo on easter weekend with lance's parents and the kids. the following pics are just a few highlights of a really great afternoon!

this was probably our favorite moment... caleb recognized the rhinos (he sleeps with a stuffed rhino named crash and it is his world). he was soo excited to see this rhino and kept waving, smiling, and repeating Ra Ra Ra for the word rhino. So cute!!

this was his first time to the zoo and he just soaked in every animal and every sounds... he loved it. i think this picture was when he was watching the monkeys... but really he had this face all day so it doesn't matter!

here is the girls taking a break... you can see that karen and i are grateful and allie is irritated that we stopped.

another cute moment was when this precious giraffe kept peaking at us over the fence. caleb really wanted to touch him!

we put a quarter in the machines so that we could buy some fish food. allie loved watching the fish eat, but caleb was not happy that we kept throwing it in the water.... he thought it was a snack!

this is allie watching the fish... we laughed at her because she would run by animals that she hasn't seen much without so much as a nod, but the fish captured her attention for a while! silly girl!

thanks for a fun time at the zoo grammie and poppy! we love you!
