To the ZOO!!

We have had a new family coming to our church since May-ish. They have 3 little girls and another baby due in October. The girls are Cora’s age, the twins (R and A) being 3 and their sister (G) is 2. We have enjoyed having them in the church and our kids get along really well, which is great! Anyway, Lynde, the girl’s mom, wanted to go to the zoo before it got too cold and before her baby came so on Monday we loaded up all 5 kids and went to the zoo. Monday is a free entrance day for those of us who live in the same county as the zoo, so that was helpful! This summer our zoo was lucky to have an elephant exhibit. I know the girls had fun, not sure if they really noticed the animals, but we were sure to show them the African favorites–lions, elephants and giraffes! We got there right when the zoo opened, walked around to see a fraction of the animals, took a train ride through “Australia,” and then ate lunch. We left after lunch as all 5 kids were getting tired and, quite frankly, so were we! 🙂 Ben rode around in the stroller and I also brought our wagon for Cora and G. However, none of the girls wanted to ride in the wagon and it became a source of arguing and fighting over who would get to pull it around. Oh well. If I hadn’t taken it they would have complained about being too tired to walk! 🙂 Kids, gotta love ’em! 🙂

There were a bunch of painted elephants all over to promote the elephant exhibit. We would have been remiss not to use this as a photo op!

This is how the girls figured out they could see the animals better.

  1. Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would like to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means seem to get something done.

  2. After study a few of the blog posts on your website now, and I truly like your way of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website list and will be checking back soon. Pls check out my web site as well and let me know what you think.

  3. Ah, the Zoo. I have complex feelings about taking children to the zoo, but I keep doing it because they seem to love it! 🙂 If only every zoo trip didn’t end with tired, grumpy people…
