wild animals

These pictures are long overdue and there are many of them in this post. I didn't have it in me tonight to edit them down to just a few, so I just posted all of them. If you make it to the end, congratulations!
We took this trip to the zoo on June 24 with the playgroup. It's true, I'm a bit behind. As usual, we had lots of fun! These moms and babies are a blast, and the kids all did really well, no nap and all!
Here we are at the entrance to the zoo.

First stop? The elephants.

All the kids with the elephants. We thought we should take a stab at the group picture before any meltdowns could happen.

Next up, the giraffes.

Egan liked the giraffes, and I thought it was super cool that they were so close!

Finally, Egan got eye to eye with the giraffe. He is so brave!

So brave that he also stood this close to lions. Have you heard him roar like a lion?

Although, I won't lie, as soon as the one in front of him stood up, he freaked out.

Marshall and Egan with the lions. Marshall looks a bit concerned.

The next close animal encounter was with a gorilla.

Check out this bird. He's doing a fancy dance.

After the kids started getting antsy, we found a place to eat our lunches and took advantage of this cool stream to let all the kids cool off.

If you know Egan, you know the is saying "That!" in the following picture.

We had a fun time exploring the zoo with our friends, and can't wait till next time!
