Some Notable Firsts...

Today we met our friends at the Brookfield Zoo. We'd never been there before, but it is so much fun!!! My friend, Katie, was able to check out passes at her library so we all got in for free! Even better! The kids had a blast!

Owen's first carousel ride. He picked the snow leopard and loved it!

Auto dryers... another very big highlight of the day!

Another highlight of the zoo was a giant misting flower. The kids had a great time and stayed in the spray so long they got soaked.

Dryin' out on the bench

Getting a little tired

Look at what the kids were looking at in the monkey house. I didn't even realize what the sign said. I hope it was appropriate for 2-3 year olds!

So hard to get a nice pic of three little ones... they're all smiling, just not at the camera!

And a major first for Owen... First ice cream cone!!! He really did pretty good and he ate it all :o) I just wish I would have thought to take off his shirt first!!! That thing will be soaking for the next month :o) Enjoy!

And, the ride home. It was quite peaceful. Owen fell asleep almost before we were out of the parking lot! What a fun day!
