Zootime fun

We ventured to the zoo a couple weeks ago with my parents, brother, brother-in-law, 2 nephews, and niece. It was a GORGEOUS day! Perfect for strolling around the zoo.

Eli and J looking at the goats.
I think this was Eli's favorite part...chasing the goats!! He loved it!
Deep sea diver
Bottoms up!! This picture cracks me up! I think they were looking at a turtle.
My brother-in-law and nephew. The measure of an ape...um, I mean...a man. Heehee!! (Sorry Chris! I couldn't resist!!)
Trying to climb out of his stroller.
I think we are looking at a bird. Eli LOVES birds right now and points them out whenever he sees one flying by.Getting a close look at the butterfly!
Eli just loved looking at all of the animals and nothing seemed to scare him except...the hippo. This hippo was sitting very still and peaceful in the water with her eyes closed for quite a long time. Nothing frightful or scary about that, right?!?! Well, we were sitting right at the glass watching when she slowly came to life and opened her eyes and mouth. Eli started screaming!!! I suppose a "rock" suddenly coming to life would be pretty scary!
Watching the fish. I think we all could have just sat and watched the aquariums all day.
Tuckered out after a long day!


  1. Ohmygosh, Stephanie - he is so cute and so big! I love the butterfly picture smile - melts my heart! Bet that sweet thang would never empty the contents of a vaseline jar!

    What a great day at the zoo for all!

  2. Looks like a great trip to the zoo--you know it was fun when the little ones zonk out at the end! That's always my favorite part . . .
