First of all, my wonderful husband took the weekend off work! That was the best gift since we don't have a day off together these days. So I took Friday off and we had 3 whole days off together as a family. The kids were so confused by it! They kept asking what day it was! So funny.
Friday we spent the day at Santa Barbara Zoo with Christina, Brian and Everett. It was so much fun. It gets more fun every time we go because the kids understand more, they love each other more, they want to stay and play and run around on the grass and hold each others hands.
Andy is so hard to photograph in front of the elephants. He loves them and doesn't stand still!
Sadie really liked the elephants too, she was looking at them and kept looking around to us and the big kids like she was asking if it was ok that there were huge wild animals right there!
Look Mom! I'm a giraffe!
We didn't tell the kids were we were going, but we did persuade his wardrobe a little. When they found out we were going on a train (we were already at the station) and was in shock. Then he got VERY excited.
Oh well, at least it made for a fun picture. Julie couldn't stop laughing long enough to take a picture with me. Sadie's face is hysterical.
