The Zoo in June

Keeping with the 
"doing something every stinking weekend" 
pattern that we had developed since we 
stepped foot back in NC...
we made a family trip to the zoo
with my mom,
sweet baby neice.

It was a nice warm day...
quite a bit cooler than what we were used to in 
Southern Texas!
But non-the-less,
it was warm enough
for them to cool off in the 
ice cave we found over
by the polar bear exhibit.

Then Uncle Jack 
posed with two of the boys
on the giant spider web. 
Luckily there was no giant spider in sight!

A quick trip for me and my baby girl 
on the merry-go-round!

Oh this looks familiar!
Momma gorillas carry their youngins around too!
Hey look,
she's got a monkey on her back!
(sorry, couldn't resist)

There is a great dinosaur exhibit at our zoo right now.

This guy was hungry.

This guy was ugly!

This guy was supposed to be dying
after a fight with a bigger dino.
(Jackson wasn't quite sure what to make of that)

The big boys posing with a big boy dino!

This guy...
we kept hearing screams coming from 
the trail up ahead of us...
couldn't figure out why...
til we got closer.
This guy SPITS at you!

We had a great time!

Except for the walking part!
Rico wore his new heely shoes,
so he had a great time wandering the park.
not so much.
Daddy's knee was giving him problems
so I got to push the littles
in the stroller
(those two littles aren't so little anymore... 
I had atleast 60 lbs in that stroller!)
for almost 5 miles
I swear
most of it was UP HILL!
How does that happen?
I have no idea!
But it was a great workout!
And I got a lot of sympathy from 
fellow zoo goers!
