On Wednesday, we went to the zoo.
There were several reasons for this trip.
The primary reason was that it was a field trip for Zander's preschool. This meant that it only cost $3 per person. Zoo admission is normally $17 for adults and $9 for children - so that is a REALLY good price.
Plus, we had been telling Ady, who is obsessed with monkeys, that if she learned to use the potty, we'd go see real monkeys at the zoo. She's been doing pretty well with the potty thing, so we figured we'd take the opportunity to go.
So, Brandon took the day off work and we went to the zoo!
It was really lots of fun. We did have some time restrictions because we had to meet up with the school group. They didn't leave the school until almost an hour after we thought they would, so that was a bummer. Although it was Zander's first chance to ride on a school bus (daddy went with him - the girls and I went in the van). He thought that was really fun.
The weather was perfect, the kids were pretty well-behaved, and we had a great time!
My cute kids with the zebra - Zander said these were his favorite because "zebra starts with 'Z', just like my name!"
Here's Ady with the monkeys. I thought she'd go nuts when she saw them, but she seemed a little unimpressed. She had a lot more fun in the petting zoo.
The baby was there too!
Zander thought it was so cool that he got to ride the bus. (The sun was in his eyes for this picture)
By the way, the cute purple hat that Ady was wearing came from Pink Alligator. We really like it!
