Zoo Trip

We have had some exceptional weather lately. I could do without all the rain - but the cooler temperatures have been a pleasant change. Sunday was absolutely perfect and we decided to enjoy the outdoors with a trip to the zoo. It had been awhile since we last visited. Here are some favorites from our day at the zoo...

zoo 01

I tried to get Maddox to check out this amazing snake but he stayed at least 6 feet away at all times. I couldn't even get him to walk past the snake to go check out one of the birds they had out for the animal show. He was trying to play it cool - but he was clearly freaked out by the snake. I'm surprised - given his obsession with the outdoors and bugs and Bear Grylls! Whatever. :-)

Maddox loves playing in that huge tree! Here he is heading for the top...

Then Grandma Donna headed up with Maddox...

...so I could hang with little Evey. I must point out that while I love the legwarmers on little ones, my child does not have the appropriate physique. We ended up having to take them off shortly after this because they were cutting into her chubby little legs. She's going to need to slim down first. ;-)
