Fun at the Zoo

This past week we had visitors.  My mom came in on Monday and left on Thursday while my aunt and uncle (my mom’s sister and brother) came in on Wednesday and left on Saturday.  They were on Spring Break from school so they were able to come visit us. 

It was a fun time with all of them.  We had a busy week.  Tuesday we went to Candi’s house to play with Nana.  Thursday we went to the zoo with Aunt Pat and Uncle Herbie.  Rob and I were able to have a night together on Thursday. 

Anyway, we went to our local zoo and had a great time.  Here are some pictures of our day:

These were some pretty “love” birds:)  You could definitely tell that spring was in the air!

Our zoo has a nice play area for the kids to play.  This was a good stopping point for me to nurse Asa.

We had a great time!  The kids love to ride the train but we skipped it this time so we could go get lunch.  It was already 1:30 by the time we left the zoo but they had already had snacks to hold them until we ate.  We left the zoo and went to a pizza buffet.  In case I haven’t told you before, my kids LOVE buffets…any buffet:)

Lots of fun! My favorite are the elephants and spider monkeys!!!
Glad you had a nice time!!! A few yrs. ago we didn't think your Uncle was going to "make it" but God had other plans. It is a blessing to see him walking around the zoo with you and Aunt Pat!

What a beautiful day for the zoo. It looks like the crowd was pretty slim also.
