Going to the Zoo

Hello, November! Thanks for having better weather than October...seriously, we do appreciate it greatly. The kids and I are soaking up every beautiful day we have been having this month. I thought for sure we were doomed to have a 9 month winter when it snowed in September. But apparently someone loves us and decided to give us the Fall we never had here in the Midwest.

Last Friday was way too nice to sit around our house so we packed up and headed to the MN Zoo. We have a membership there and we have been taking full advantage of it. Besides, if the kids could pick anywhere to go it would definitely be to see the animals. Unfortunately some of the outside animals (giraffes, zebras, wild horses) were gone for the winter and the bears were already hibernating (in a glass cave so we could watch them sleep) but it was still fun. Braden has more fun watching the people there and Alexa likes the park best anyway, so really the only person missing the animal action was this girl.


Braden is in love with the dolphins, we sat and watched them swim around for like 20 minutes and the whole time he kept saying "Ohhhhhh" and "Hiiiiiiii"

Isn't it fun when you can enjoy outdoor activities in the late fall? We love the zoo so much. Big fun! Cute pictures of your little birdies.

what a great idea! I love the pic's. I was (don't throw anything at me) hoping for a LONG winter. I love it and I feel it's TOO short. There, I said it out loud, and yes, I am ducking. :) It's crazy, I know...But, since I didn't get my wish (early lasting snow) I am so glad you could enjoy the day at the zoo with your kiddos!

Looks like a FUN day. It's been nasty (rainy) here, but we had a wonderful weekend. I hope you get a few more outside days before winter sets in.
I love the last wet of pictures. They are so cute in the nest.

So fun!!! It has been YEARS since I was at the MN zoo! I don't think my kids have ever been there! I should definitely make sure that happens next year when all the animals are out & awake again!

so much fun! I love going to the Zoo. Sadly the one here in KC isn't anything to write home about but the Omaha and St Louis Zoos are fantastic. We just have to make a special trip to go to either one of those. :) Next Summer we will. I can't wait to take Lauren to Omaha and see the penguins swimming and diving around.!
