Today Arin and I went to the zoo with our little kids. We found out that a parent pushing a stroller got in for free, so I only had to pay for Jakob. Sweet! We had tons of fun, and because it was a little cooler all the animals were out, including the tigers and lions. Whenever I've gone they've been asleep in the shade. Jakob said his favorite was the lions, Brock's was the monkeys, and Troy's was the "guy-ger" (the tiger).
Here's my little fam on the tiger statue:
We went to see the goats, and the lady let the kids brush them down. The kids and the "kids" loved it! (Get it? Young goats? Kids? I'm so clever!)
There was a display area there that my husband's company had contributed to. It was playing some kind of drum tribal music. Jakob and Ila started busting their moves.
Afterwards we went to McDonald's, where our starving children sucked down nuggets, fries, and drinks. And of course they played on the really (filthy) fun toy in there.
All in all, a very awesome outing.
Here's a slide show, including pics of the kids with the tigers in the background.
