We fit right in at the zoo!

On Sunday after our much needed Date Nights, we decided to take the kids to the zoo. We try to get out of the house and take the kids to go do something every single day. Some days it's harder than others, but either way it's a break from the squeals of "she's touching my toys" and "he won't give me that back!" 
 Seriously, be still, my heart.
 Off to the zoo we go!
Connor gets so excited and tells us all about the animals he's going to say hi to at the zoo. He makes all sorts of connections to movies likes Madagascar and Lion King. He calls animals by their character name. Pumbaa, Marty the zebra, Melman. So funny.
Okay, do you see Connor's face in this photo?!? I have NO idea why he was making this face. He wasn't unhappy about it. I thought it'd be such a cute photo. Hmm.
That face again...
We have year memberships and we've had them since Connor was a baby. We use them all the time.
 This was our attempt at a self pic. At least we got everyone in the picture.
Oh goodness. Connor's face. I swear I'm not pinching him or anything.
They block the flamingos for part of the year during mating season and it's been a while since we got to see them. Connor kept calling them "chickens" and Aiden kept calling them "doggies." Oh lordy. The people around us were getting quite the comedy show.
For me, the measure of a successful zoo day (or any outing, really) is how well they take naps afterwards and let me tell you, the kids took PHENOMENAL naps (over 3 hours!). If that isn't reason enough to get out of the house and walk around, I don't know what is!
