Taking a Trip to the Zoo

We've taken quite a few trips to the Zoo, but I have to admit that a trip with almost 4-year-olds is really fun.  They can do more for themselves and they aren't scared of everything.  Our most recent trip was our first day out with a healthy Daddy.

Gracie and Lukie touched a python skin, a rattle snake skin, and Gracie, my brave girl, petted a guinea pig.  We were seriously enchanted by the Children's Zoo.  I don't know how we've managed to skip that part of the Zoo over the past few years, but we will definitely be going back.

Gracie and Luke kept wanting to look through the telescopes.  Next time, I need to make sure I have money for them!

For some reason, there was also a lot of eating.  Daddy, Gracie, and Luke packed a "goodie" bag.  Lukie packed fruit.  Gracie packed BBQ sauce chips.  You can see where their priorities are.

Lukie loves fruit and nectarines are one of his favorite fruits!

Yeah, I'm tough.

Thanks for the SEE food, Lukie!


Look at these eyes!  How can you say No to them???

Someone talked us into churros.

We saw lots of animals, too.  The kangaroos were great fun!  But the star of the day was the Kimodo Dragon.


Lukie kept talking about him like he was the best thing in the whole world!

Now time for a Twinterview (age 3 years 10.5 months):
