With the kids being out of school this past week for spring break, we went to the zoo. Not just once, but twice. The first time I took them with my parents, and my brothers Dylan, Dustin, and Austin. It was very very crowded that day, and I was very grateful for the extra hands to keep track of all of my little ones. The second day I convinced Chase to take the day off from work and we met up with our friends Rae and Scott, and their little girls Bethany and Meagan. That day it wasn’t quite so crowded and I didn’t have to worry as much about where each child was at all times. The only problem we had was that little Bethany (just a month older than Bekah) got very frustrated whenever we would call out to Bekah. She said “mommy, they keep calling me something that I don’t know!” Bethany lives in Utah and our kids have only met a handful of times, and she just couldn’t get used to another little girls name being so similar to hers. While it was a bit much to do the zoo 2 times in one week, we only did about 1/3 the first day, 1/3 the second day, and skipped the annoying 1/3 all together. (the children's area with petting zoo…)
Petting the Sting Rays
Bekah was brave enough to try it…
I would love to be able to paint a mural like this in the girls bathroom.
Riding the Carousel
I had a pass from a while ago that had just enough punches left for the big kids to ride, thankfully the little ones were content to sit with the moms and watch.
And if you are tired of pictures, you can stop looking now.
(sorry Rae, the only pics I got of you didn’t turn out good, so I just left them out… I need a new camera!)
