Since Noah and my sister had Monday off we loaded up the kids to go to the zoo for the afternoon. We are members there this year- basically because we have enough kids that going twice pretty much covers the cost of the annual membership.
Yes. Deacon did wear his bike helmet the whole time. And no. I don't know why. And yes, Roman did wear his puppy dog costume the whole time. And no. Again I don't know why.
Lincoln was the most interested in the animals.
Here are the creepy otters. Deacon took that picture.
Deacon likes to look at the animals, but he also likes to climb things. Maybe it is good he wore his helmet.
Roman? Well, Roman likes to push every button he can find and crawl into and onto every cave and nook and cranny that he discovers. Oh, and beg for food. He only likes baby animals and animals that look like Ewoks.
Not sure they were supposed to be up there. But there were no signs. Ignorance can sometimes be bliss. Or is it ignorance of the law is no excuse?
They even managed to get down by themselves!
The boys were extremely disappointed that the playground was closed for the season. They just don't get why the zoo might consider it a liability to let children climb all over iced down playground equipment. They did have a giant sandbox that the boys enjoyed.
Afterward we totally freaked my sister out by driving home with almost no gas in the tank. By the time we reached a gas station our DTE was 0 and we filled the tank with 18.769 gallons of gas. That is a new record. Noah and I get a thrill from living life on the edge.
Then we went to SmashBurgers for supper. Wow, what a great burger.
