Saturday we took the kids to the zoo. It was a perfect zoo day - cool and overcast with small spurts of sun. For me, there is not much worse than a hot summer day at the zoo so I was thrilled with the weather! :) The kids were so excited they were bouncing off the walls. I'm not sure what their favorite parts of the day were as it has changed every time we talk about it. Kaylen loved petting the goats and Kelton loved the bird show but then, smelling bobcat pee seemed to be a highlight as well. :)
For me, I just loved watching the kids experience it all...well, not all as there is no way we could see everything in the six hours we were there. I just loved watching their faces light up with excitement. We saw the Winged Wonder exhibit which was a greenhouse type structure FULL of butterflies. They were everywhere! Several times Dakota and I both had hitchhikers on us which never failed to elicit laughter from the kids.
It was a really great day and kind of took out mind off the fact that this was the last carefree Saturday until winter break. Hard to believe that both Dakota and Kelton will be in school very, very soon.
Here are a few pictures to share:
