The Zoo!

Look at all these super cute pictures!!

Last weekend... or maybe the one before I'm not sure. Rodney and I took Mollie and Miranda to the zoo. Personally, I love the zoo all the time, but it's even better when you bring little kids! (they say Disneyland is the same way) When I went to pick them up I asked Mollie what animal she was most excited to see. She told me the white crocodile and from that moment on that's all we heard about! We got there and she grabs the map, opens it up and says "k, so where's the crocodile?" It was so cute! Of course when we got to the exhibit she wouldn't talk and was done seeing it in about two seconds.I tried to take a picture, but all you can see is my reflection in the glass!

I asked Miranda what her favorite was and she said "all of them". (Although we did get her to concede later that the spiders and snakes probably wouldn't make it to her top 20 list) Rodney was fascinated by the monkeys and I spent the whole day in awe of how fast the sun enjoys frying my skin. I don't know what I did in a past life to cause that big ball of gas to have such a vendetta against me, but within an hour I was the world's largest lobster. It's a miracle they didn't lock me up in an exhibit! ; ) Thankfully my wonderful husband bought me an over priced zoo hat which made things ten times better. I did learn that there are fish without eyes that glow on the bottom of the ocean and find their way around with their ultra sensitive skin cells. How cool is that??

M&M LOVED the train ride of course! And I must admit, although only 2 mins long, I thought it was pretty cool myself! They take you right inside the pens of buffaloes and other such large creatures. All in all, it was a great day! And the girls didn't even argue until the ride home! : )

And as a little side note, we had an awesome 4th of July! We spent the evening with our bestest friends Katie, Rob, and Lissy Lyn(the baby). Thanks to my mom for the coolest bow in my hair. : )
