Zoo Day

Connor collected sticks while I finished feeding Colton his lunch.

I tried taking a picture of the boys together to update the header on the blog (in the egg just like the one that's up now). Getting the boys to look at the camera at the same time is next to impossible, and forget about 2 simultaneous smiles!! This one is about as good as it gets.

Thursday was a beautiful and extra warm day in February so we decided it would be a great zoo day. I knew that when Connor woke up at 6am (an entire hour early) that it would be an interesting outing. Our first stop at the zoo is generally the children's area with the play ground and some smaller animals. We did not stop to play long because we wanted to see a few animals before all crabbiness took over. Next stop...TIGER!!! We couldn't see him last time, but this day he was right out front and it was amazing for Connor to see. I believe he could have sat in front of the viewing area the entire time. He had been telling me for 2 days, ever since I told him we were going to the zoo, that he wanted to see the tiger. He actually wanted to see 2 tigers, 1 for him and 1 for K (Haley) in the water. Unfortunately the zoo only has 1 tiger but he seemed quite content with that. We also visited the rhinos and the kangaroos, now known as the monkey-roos. It was a short visit this trip we focus on the gorillas.
