Wordful Wednesday

I am so far behind. One computer is having photo uploading issues and the other computer won't edit my video. SO FRUSTRATING, computers can be.

Anyway, last Saturday Stephen was off work and we had not a thing to do for the day. It was gorgeous, so we headed to the zoo for the morning. Who knew that Saturdays when you don't have to work can be so fun! Family time is highly under-rated! (A bit of sarcasm there, if you couldn't tell. I can't wait for Stephen to get his own practice so that he doesn't have to work Saturdays.)
The elephants are a favorite, especially since they have expanded the space and have more elephants. We also got to see my personal favorite, the giraffes. One had just give birth the night before. How amazing it is that they can walk right out of the womb!
Monkeys are another personal favorite. This is one of my favorites! He's even acting like a monkey!
The mandrill came up close and personal with us and gave us quite a stare down.

The orangutans always entertain as well.

There were a couple of first for Kendrick. He LOVED brushing the goats! The carousel was a first as well, but he was pretty sedate. I'm not quite sure what he thought, though it could have been that he was just tired and he is cutting some teeth.

Wow...we really do have a lot in common. Giraffes are my fave, too, as I mentioned in our zoo post! Looks like a great day!

Great pictures! Family time is definitely under-rated! We don't get enough of it either, since my hubby is in grad school in addition to working.

Thanks for sharing - have a great day!

Looks like a great day! I can't believe how close you were able to get to some of the animals.
