Last Saturday our local zoo opened early to do a little breakfast event. They provided some bagels and donuts and orange juice, etc, and then you could walk around and watch different animals having breakfast! Best of all, it was free to members :) So we met some friends there and had a good time :)
Some of the children snacked on the food for a bit....
...but the call of the tiger was too strong to resist for long!
Avery and Kayla :)
Brogan pointing out the goldfish in the pond.
Standing on the fence. I'm sure there are rules against standing on the fence, but look how big and strong she is :)
Brogan wants to be just like his sister :)
Brogan found Timmy's pacifier in the front seat of the stroller, and insisted that he needed it! Timmy did eventually take it...probably just to make the annoying boy go away :)
Kayla being helpful and bringing Brogan back after he ran off towards the cougar area.
Climbing on logs, enjoying the view :)
Brogan, Avery and Trevor.
Later on that day, we were all back at our house and the children did some painting in the carport.
Brogan was having a great time painting too, but then he started having a hard time resisting the siren call of other people's paint plates and paper...so he went and played in the sand pit while the girls continued to create masterpieces :)
Then of course it was trampoline time, which involved a lot of squealing and screaming!
Then, before letting them come back into the house, Gabe had to blast the sand off them with the leaf blower, which is something he'd been dying to try out for a while, apparently :)
