Gracie had fun soaking up the sunshine. Maybe she might actually get some color!
Gracie was the supervisor, making sure Bub didn't throw any of the rocks.
He tired eventually and decided to sit and watch his sisters.

After walking around for just a short time, the kids decided to hit the splashpad. Gracie was enjoying it and came out pretty wet. The other 2 weren't quite sure. Then we always stop by the wall to take pictures as animals and yet another surprise.....it was a brand-new wall! Cool! Gracie wanted to be a giraffe. Then we went to see some penguins. And some wolves. Then some giraffes. Then it was time to hit the Children's Zoo and pet/brush some goats. You know who else we ran into at the zoo????
Our BFF Jackson. We had so much fun with him, I forgot to turn the picture around! Meanwhile, we went to pet the miniture pony. Then we went and saw some sea lions. I love that they swim right up to the glass. And of couse what zoo trip wouldn't be complete without a trip on the carousel? Gracie of course rode her favorite, the panda bear. Evie rode a bug. And this guy? He didn't ride anything. He rode the bench!After a brief incident of Evie kicking off her shoe, not being able to find it, buying her new zoo crocs, and then find the shoe by the carousel, it was time to head home. But not before I took a pic of the girls in thier animal shirts. And then Bub felt left out so we took another one. We waited for Gracie to pick out her animal figure, which is a zooly thing, so Evie tried on her sunglasses. And Presley said "Let's go already. I'm tired!" We weren't even out of the parking lot and he was out. With his chips and craackers still in his hand! Evie was out quick too. Gracie fell asleep shortly after. We love the zoo!

We also had to make a safari hat too.
And then Miss Sylvie read us the book "Giraffes Can't Dance." If you have never read that book, you should. It's really cute. It's already in the Weiss library.
