The Zoo!!!

I realized later that this is the only picture of Callie from the day! She was buckled in the stroller, so she didn't get posed in the pictures. Oh well - it was probably "safer" that way, right?
This was the first thing we saw - the tigers! They were asleep right below where the boys were standing on the fence! They loved it!! (By the way, you'll notice this recurring pose through this post. The pictures all seem to be of them lined up looking at something - it's hilarious!)
This was as much as we saw of the butterfly garden!
Harrison was asking to see the lions ALL morning! They were way in the back, but we saw them (well, only the daddy lion sleeping in the grass). The baby cubs still haven't made their appearance yet - too new, I suppose.
Always love the elephants - HATE the stink!
Jacob especially loved the giraffes. We were able to see them really close up.
Josiah said he liked this the best - testing out his wingspan!

And at the end, Jacob, Jackson, and Harrison ran through the sprinklers and got SOAKING wet!! Josiah opted to stay out of that one and stay dry!

This should have been the first of these water pictures - this was them just "feeling" the water. It didn't take long for them to take the plunge and get totally soaked!
Josiah LOVED this - they had a giant spider web to climb on. (You know, continue to feed the Spiderman obsession I suppose!)

We had a special fun day today! Beth & her boys were in town visiting while Anthony had some work to do, so we went to the zoo this morning! We haven't been in a LONG time, and the weather was gorgeous! The boys loved running around and seeing everything. It's the perfect little zoo for kids this age - it's never crowded, so they can run around freely, and you can see everything in about 2 hours! It was great!

We love the zoo:) We got pictures in front of the wingspan too:) The spider web sure is fun, but it carries some bad memories for Jake now (that's where the little girl bit him). It was great weather for it (though the water would have been freezing:) Jake would have been running through it right along with them though. That is probably his favorite part:)

I guess it's time to take a trip to the zoo, it looks like such a fun time. I know Ryan would have been right there in the water getting soaked as well. What a great day!

Looks like ya'll had a great time with the William's boys! I know your boys love when they get to see Harrison and Jackson.

So many cute shots of the kids you got. I haven't seen the spider web. That must be new. Even though we just went to the Atlanta Zoo I still want to take the kids to this one.

We LOVE the fountains at the zoo. The boys both find them so much fun, just like the ones at the botanical gardens. That anticipation on their faces is priceless! Looks like a fun day!
