Zoo Fun!

I love this weather we have been having. I knew it wasn't going to last long though, so I decided to make the most of it. On Friday, I went to the zoo with Riley, Lily, & my sister Amy. Well, when Zach heard, he was a little upset. This was the first time we went to the zoo without him. So, since it was such a nice day again today (and Jeff missed out on all of Lily's reactions to the animals) we decided to go again! Here are some pictures from both of our trips.

The last time we went to the zoo, (in the Fall) Lily hadn't been walking for too long & wasn't too interested in the animals. This time she was very excited about them. It was so funny to watch her get excited. Riley loves the sheep. I think this is his favorite part of the zoo.

Riley (and Zach) love climbing on the statues at the zoo and getting their picture taken. We joke that we go to the zoo to see the statues. Here is a picture of Aunt Amy bravely getting up on the lions too.
Here are pictures from Day 2 at the zoo:
Here is Lily in her shades.

I love the peacocks at the zoo. Here is one that was literally posing with Zach. It moved away after I stopped taking pictures.

This peacock let both boys (this is Riley) feed it out of their hands.

Jeff & Lily petting the horse.

I know there are no kids in this picture, but I have never seen the hippos up on the land!

Here is Lily checking out how tall she is.

Here is Zach with the real lions......

and here are the fake lions again....

We had a lot of fun at the zoo and I can't wait for more nice weather!!


  1. Awe, Lily got to pet the horses after all. :-)

  2. I'm surprised jeff didn't want to see the sheep :)
