The Zoo. No not my house, the REAL zoo.








My mom and sister and niece all came here for the weekend. I miss my family all the time and was so excited to have them here for a few days. Saturday was a gorgeous day outside and we just had to get out and enjoy the sunshine and the spring feel in the air. Dh thought it would be nice to head out to the zoo and that is what we did. It was a bit muddy and mucky in parts, but the kids sure didn't mind. They chased each other around, threw snowballs and checked out the animals. We enjoyed their laughter and the sun warm on our faces.

  1. Oh, I can't wait to take Alex to the zoo. He's into animals in a way Ben never will be.

  4. What fun! We did the National Zoo about 2 months ago, but I'd like to go again soon when the weather here is a little warmer. My southern blood just can't handle freezing (re: 50 degrees or lower) temperatures!
