Zoo Trip

It's me again (yes 2 times in one month with a post, I think that's a record for me)!
In my last post I wrote a bit about our trip to the zoo.  We went in the beginning of May (which last year was pretty warm) it was cold this year and the kids, while bundled up, were able to see the animals moving around a bit more then if it were warmer. 

This was Charlie's 1st visit to the Detroit zoo, and I think he loved it.  The kids got to ride on the carousel for the first time, they both seemed to enjoy it.  While Jean has been to the zoo before and has ridden the train there Charlie rode it for the first time.  The kids did really well walking around, they didn't mind being in the stroller or in the wagon or just walking, and neither one of them gave Bill or I any trouble. 

Aside from the train and the carousel one of my favorite things to do at the zoo is walk through the Outback Adventure area.  This is a part of the zoo where you get to walk on a path through the Kangaroo habitat.  We didn't have any Kangaroo's cross our path, but we did see a couple of boxing Kangaroos, (I think it was matting season).  That was something I have never seen before, it was so cool.  I took quite a few photos of the fight, but I didn't have my camera focused right so the photos aren't the best.  I took the best one I had and made a scrapbook layout of it.  (Layout made using Trixie Scraps Designs King of the Pride Kit and add-ons, and June 2013 Templatopia Pack).

Pretty cool isn't it?!?!?! 


I was able to get a few pretty cool picture of Charlie and Bill at the rhino exhibit, (I used Trixie Scrap Designs King of the Pride kit for the layout I created here along with Seatrout Scraps Summer Bytes Template part 1).

I love how Bill has Charlie on his shoulders looking back and the rhino is just chilling out in the background.

We had a ton of great memories at the zoo, and unfortunately I didn't have time to scrap them all, but I didn't want to leave out any photos from the blog post, so here are a few other of my favorite photos.

Well that's about it for now.  Another fun filled weekend is ahead.  I'm going to take the kids to my sisters house for a late Father's Day party with my family, and to enjoy the Red Cedar Festival.  I can't wait to see everyone, it's felt like forever since I got together with my family.  I know Jean is excited to see her cousins and to show off her new "potty" skills.  Which I must add she is doing very well with the potty training, last week while I was out of town for work she only had 2 accidents!!!!  Now if I could only get Charlie out of diapers!

Until Next Time...
