♥ A Trip to the Zoo ♥

While my nephew and his wife were here last week, we were on the go all week!  I have several things to share here but it would be picture overload to do them all in one day, so I'm starting with a few highlights from the zoo!  :)

Last Thursday we enjoyed a beautiful day at the zoo!  It was overcast and breezy.....just THE perfect day for the zoo!

Luke had never been to the zoo before so it was fun watching him.  When we were in China, we went to a safari, but he doesn't remember it.  He was so excited, but since he walked all the way through (no stroller for him), he was ready to go home towards the end!



There is a special exhibit going on where the kids can pet stingrays (Stingray Bay).  That was a highlight!

Joy and Luke enjoyed it....



So did the big kids.....Colt, Amber, Trey & Shauna!



Luke with YaYa, the panda......





Jason and I doing what tuckered out parents do best....sitting on a bench catching a rest.......  :)



Joy and Luke rode the camel....Joy says it's so rhythmical that it just about put her to sleep!



At the farm petting zoo.......



Love this one......it totally sums up the relationship of these two!



We caught Luke sitting (resting) "China style".  If you've ever been to China, you'll total get this one!  You especially see the men sitting this way on the sidewalks in China....even the older ones!



Luke enjoyed dippin' dots compliments of big sister.....



It was a fun day!  We headed to CiCis pizza afterwards before calling it a day.

Lovin' these summer days!  :)  Hope your summer is wonderful so far!

Thanks for stopping by!

Mama,

The zoo was so much fun! Stingray Baby was so fun. I mean, who gets the chance to pet stingrays and mini sharks? :) Thank you for taking us! :)

Love you! 8!

Love,
Joy :)

What a fun day at the zoo...thanks for sharing all your fun.

I am amazed that Luke picked up this 'trait'
from China....even though he's never really been exposed to this - guess 'culture' never really leaves a person. I find this very endearing.
Blessings,
karen
