We met Bess and the kids at the Zoo on Monday. The zoo there is really big and they have a lot of fun animals.
Andy was intrigued by this mountain lion. It was huge! He also liked all the other lions and the rhino.
I don't know what Sadie was looking at here, but she looks adorable.
I love this picture of all the kiddos and Bess and John. They didn't stand still for long.
Veda liked playing under this plastic water fall thing.
Our kids preferred the giant cage thing.
Daddy got some sweet cuddles. We were at the zoo for about 5 hours!
We were watching this polar bear and another one popped out of the water and started playing with a huge ball in the water. They are so big and powerful, yet playful and adorable. It was hard to get the kids to leave the polar bear.
Of course the carousel was a huge hit as well.
Andy, sitting on a snake statue....I swear, its a snake.
Sadie wants to do everything that the big kids do.
We went in the petting zoo area and Sadie loved brushing the goats and they loved all the attention.
Andy found a goat of his own. But his goat was more excited about eating a chain.
Julie's goat was pretty mellow. I think she would have brought her home if we could have.
Andy and Sadie are always drawn to whatever Julie is doing, so her goat got the most love.
That night we went to dinner at one of Uncle Matt's favorite places that served flat bread style pizza and was also a brewery with a lot of different beers. So basically, there was something to make everyone happy.
After dinner, the Gerig's went home and we went for a walk and found frozen yogurt. It was kind of in a ritzy, fancy neighborhood. So we pretty much stuck out like a sore thumb.
But it was a nice night and we enjoyed walking around the fancy neighborhood.
We ended the night with swimming and a great nights sleep!
