we took the boys to the zoo on sunday, bright and early so we could see all the animals before it got too hot. it was a great time to go—the snakes were slithering, the pandas were rousing and the goats were grinning. seriously, they were grinning.
see? grinning. and that made for one happy alex.
alex was fearless. he looked that sheep right in the eye …
… and grabbed a goat by the ear.
max was a little more hesitant …
… but eventually he just had to touch that goat.
at the rhinocerous habitat, the boys picked up chicks. this one’s name was stella.
they loved the panda bears. they even got panda tattoos and brough home two panda cubs for their room.
alex got tickled in the bird house.
and max pranced and preened on the many curbs.
and the train. the train was a huge hit, naturally!!
choo, choo! let’s go to the zoo!!
