We took advantage of our zoo membership and took part in the Members’ Night festivities. Our local zoo plans these member nights three times a year and they are always a treat and less crowded for our crew.
We thought Y the Brave had been to a zoo before because he lives in a city where there is a zoo. But, he told us over and over that he had never been. It was so much fun watching his excitement over seeing the animals up close. Spot our bunch…I have to say tie dye shirts are my favorite family shirts so far. They were a lot of fun to make and easy to spot. New sea otters exhibit is so interesting! But, Emmie loved the bears. She “oooohed” over them the most. A volunteer singing about koalas. We can’t call them koala bears now. Feeding the Lorakeets. They were so full from the whole day of eating but we managed to get them to take a bite or two. Flamingo impersonation. Y the Brave told us that he wanted to see elephants most of all. I think he was thrilled when he got to see them. But the smell…well, it always knocks us all off our feet. A bunch of Characters in a small train car. Mostly all smiles.
Rock wall climbing. I was a bad mama and forgot to open the flash so half the pictures were unrecognizable. Zoe and Ace were proud of their checkerboard accomplishment.Here’s the traditional family portrait with the lions.
This is our family,our neighbors next door and our neighbors across the street. Right now, we have twenty kids between our three families (we have some amazing neighbors who are foster parents!). I can’t remember how many are in this picture though. Pretty close to that number, I believe.
