We had an amazing time on our Thursday trip to the zoo.
We met Hollie, one of my life long friends, and her girls, Maddie & Kenzie.
We arrived when the zoo opened and almost shut it down.
It was so great to hang out with Hollie! She and I have been friends for so long.
Our kids had so much fun together. We have the four best kids ever.
The girls were belly laughing at the gorilla. The silly thing was sitting there eating his boogers.
He put his finger right up inside his nose and ate it. Uggh!! So nasty. But super funny too.
I think feeding the birds was the highlight of the day. It was so fun.
We bought sticks with bird seed stuck to them. The birds were so tame and just at the food right off the sticks. The kids just went crazy...I did too...it was so fun!
Hayden was cracking up. His giggles were so cute.
This bird just sat right on Maddie's arm while she fed it...I was amazed!
During the end of the bird feeding adventure, Layla saw a boy step on a bird. He killed it. She was devastated. She has talked about it non-stop. Bless her heart. She came home and reenacted it. She said it squeaked when it died. Oh, bless her heart. It's such a tough thing for a 4 year old to see. But she is okay with it after a talk about death...just want I wanted to do after a hot day at the zoo.
Layla and Kenzie cheezin'!!
Hayden and Kenzie
Three pretty ladies!
By 4pm Hayden was DONE!
He did so good considering he didn't get a nap all day long.
Maddie, Hayden and Kenzie!
