On Wednesday, we headed to the Zoo. What a fun and enjoyable day for all of us. Well, it was a little hotter than this pregnant gal would have liked it, but there was a good breeze despite the temperature being close to 90 degrees.
The boys found a stray turtle in the parking lot and took turns sitting on his head. This was amazingly entertaining for us all. I just love how a 3 year old and 2 year old find so much pleasure in little things like this.
We had a lot of fun walking around and looking at animals, and doing all those silly and "extravagant" things buying food to feed the overfed fish in the pond. The boys have so much energy and literally ran from exhibit to exhibit in the hot sun. Even though Nick had wisely brought his Camel Pack (water pack) and kept us all hydrated, the boys got pretty hot from all their running... so we took them into the bathroom and soaked their heads down. They LOVED it!! And only a few people commented on how funny they looked... with their matted, sweaty, wet heads and rosy cheeks.
The "boys" checking out the ostriches.
The Zoo had this fun little train that made a tour around one of the lakes/ponds---and our boys do love trains, so we decided to go for it.
