Beauty and the Beasts

The family - minus my dad - went the to zoo on Saturday. It was so awesome. 

First, Kai took it upon himself to be the map man/navigator and had his map held out the entire time so he could show us where we were and where we were headed. 

I think we all see a future explorer/architect in our midst!

June was so great. She rolled around in her stroller for a bit but mostly wanted to walk while holding hands. Vivi was the one she mainly wanted to hold hands with, but she accepted Daddy and asked for Kai later in the day.

Michael and I are talking about getting a membership. Any zoo members out there? From Phoenix or other? Do you go to the zoo as much as you should considering your membership? I feel like we might not go as much as would warrant it. But man did June love to see those animals.

Probably the funniest part of the day was when we saw the monkeys. One came right up against the glass (June couldn't decide if she was glad or not) and Kai immediately decided to show the monkey the map. That monkey studied that map pretty hard, and it was decided that if a sudden monkey outbreak occurred and they managed to escape the zoo, we'd have a 5 year-old boy to blame for showing them the way out.

  1. What a perfect way to return to AZ1 I had a fabulous time at the zoo with my kids and grandkids! Perfect weather, perfect company, the only thing that could have made it better is if John were there! Thanks for inviting me and thanks for posting all these pictures. They bring back all the wonderful memories!
