Yesterday morning we packed a picnic, loaded up, and made our way downtown to the zoo. Our neighborhood friend, Lauren, went with us and was such a great help. She adores Ethan and Caden and they adore her! It was hot, but we had a blast and even made it home in time for much needed naps!
Ethan loved the elephants
Lauren was Caden's right hand all day :-)
The highlight of Ethan's day was seeing the giraffes and zebras!
Caden was such a trooper in the stroller and of course Ethan wanted to walk the whole day but the jogger definitely came in handy getting to and from the car.
Mommy's favorite part of the day!
The pandas were so sweet and love to climb, roll around, and play.
We had to take a ride on the carousel on our way to the train.
Our final event of the day. What would a trip to the zoo be without a train ride! There's Ethan's cheese face and poor Caden with his thumb in his mouth and a black eye from taking out the corner of our bed while he and Ethan were playing the day before.
Thanks Mimi for the birthday present!
We love our Zoo passes!
