Zoo Fun

We normally go to the MN Zoo since we have a season pass and it's a lot bigger with more stuff to do, however last weekend we decided to go to the other zoo in town to switch it up. It also has a little mini amusement park thing which we ended up spending a lot of the day at. Matt and Alexa both got wristbands and I think she made him go on like 200 rides. I had to post pictures because they are just kind of funny. There's something about a 6'1" man sitting in a kiddie ride that looks comical.
He is such a great Daddy!




The Frog Hopper was definitely Alexa's favorite ride.  At one point they just let her stay on it because she just kept getting off and running around to the entrance gate again.









Alexa's favorite animals we saw...the penguins.



This is how Braden fell asleep halfway through the day, going to the zoo is exhausting!

She looks so happy on that ride! Even if you hadn't said it was her favorite, it would be obvious. She has a great smile!
Poor Braden. I always feel so bad for them when they get that tired. But it's kind of nice to wear them out too. :)
Matt looked like he was having fun. There's nothing better than a Daddy and his kids having fun together.

Your zoo has an amusement park? No fair! What fun you all had! I love the look of complete bliss on Alexa's face, and how sweet is Braden? I never really knew what plum tired looked like until I saw a child fall asleep in the car seat or high chair. Those are the best pictures!

Yay for Como Zoo! Love the pics, what a good dad! The old fashioned cars are my boy's favorites too. I have a similar pic of them.

Awww, look at little tuckered out Braden with his cute green Crocs. I bet he slept good that night!

A zoo with rides...awesome. Love the little baby green crocs.
Fun photos. Kiddies rides are for big and little kids, huh?

Hope the homeschooling is getting easier. I know I am not cut out for that.

Arizona Mamma said...

What a ZOO!! Wow. My kids would love that. I think we'd be there a few times each week. We have a membership to our zoo, but it is just some little rinky dink thing. Nothing like that.

Matt is such a great sport! Braden has it made...don't you sometimes wish Mommies had a stroller to fall asleep in at the end of the trip? I know I do! ;)

Great pics, Laura!
