On Memorial day we went to the Zoo! It was so nice since Justin had the day off, and we could spend the whole day with Memere, Jolie, David and Makua! JJ got some sugar from Memere, probably more than he could handle but that's what's grandmas are for!
We started off our Zoo adventure off by riding the carousel. Justin rode on while I took pictures.
I think Justin and Jolie probably had more fun on the carousel than the boys did.
We rented a stroller at the Zoo since we forgot ours and the two boys had fun playing together, the little goon in the Blue is ours... it cracks me up that his ears poke out when he has his hat on, and that he was so stoked about the stuffed tiger Memere got for him (and Makua is just checking it out)
We saw seals and sea lions, and a polar bear in the Rocky shores exhibit
The snow leopard was right up against the glass so the boys could get really close.
When Makua gets tired he gets cuddly! and really wanted to give JJ a hug.
Here are just a few of the animals we saw at the Zoo... A tiger, a Rhino, Bald eagles, otters, lynx, snow leopard, monkeys, orangutans and a polar bear.
One of our last stops was the Elephants, which was great since they were playing and taking a bath.
Both our boys love riding on their daddy's shoulders.
I am so glad we got a shot of all of us enjoying the elephants and not having to pose and smile.
Makua and his Daddy David
JJ really loves his papa!
A picture of almost all of us (we're missing Kim, Kathy, and a few of the girls)
To finish off our already great day at the zoo we had ice cream, JJ isn't a fan of the ice cream quite yet but he loves to eat the cone!
Makua REALLY enjoyed the ice cream!
We even found a spot where we could get a view of the elephants without any one's head in the way.
Of course... another shot of my boys being goofy...
And JJ using Justin's head as a drum!
We had so much fun showing JJ and Makua all of the animals at the Zoo! But that's only the first half of our day!!!
