So we jumped in the van and headed out. As we were driving I asked Colsen if this was a good birthday gift (his birthday is tomorrow). He answered, "This is a PERFECT birthday gift! Because it's not even on my birthday!"
And it was a fun day.
Colsen introduced his brother to the giraffes... and the gorillas...
Miles kept asking me to take his picture with the pretend animals:
In the afternoon we headed across the bridge and took a tram ride to the botanical gardens.
|I'm pretty sure they were daring each other to jump in.|
My favorite part of the day was hearing how grateful the kids were on the long car ride home. All of them kept thanking me and telling me what a fun adventure it had been. Then, when I took them for ice cream, Colsen said, "This is just like vacation after vacation!!"
Strider wasn't able to join us since he was in classes all day, so I'll just post a picture of him from the first time we went to this zoo:
|Weren't they so cute??|
