The Zoo!!

It’s been a little while, huh? I had to print the pics I had taken in the past two months and it was a bit overwhelming to upload them all to the place that I have print them, order copies for all the relatives, sort them all when they got here in the mail, etc…. so as a result I didnt take any pictures for about a week! LOL. It was 212 pics, I think, and with reprints it was 368! But this weekend I got the camera back out for our trip to the zoo:

All ready to go and SO excited! We left the house a little before 10am, and Joshua was asking me since he woke up at 6:00 if it was time to leave yet!

Joshua was a little apprehensive about touching this boa constrictor named Slinky. He needed a little coaxing! It was hard to get a good pic, too, because of so many people crowding around.
We had just painted Joshua’s face like a tiger. 🙂

Dominique didnt need any coaxing at all and couldn’t seem to get enough of Slinky!

Dominique and the zebras

Me and my children. 🙂 You can hardly see my belly from this angle and with this shirt, huh? I’m thinking that maybe vertical stripes are a good thing for pregnant women. We were in the monkey house here, even though you cant see the monkeys. Dominique LOVED them!

We went with our friends the Tymms and the Cummings. The Tymm’s have 5 little ones and the Cummings have 4, so we had quite a crowd of little people. I was hoping to get a nice pic of all of them here, but as you can see, that was a hopeless cause! This was the best of the five that I took.

I couldn’t believe that Joshua stayed awake all the way home, but this was the result! He fell asleep at the dinner table at just after 5:00!! He has NEVER fallen asleep at the table before!

Dominique did have a short nap on the way home, but it wasn’t nearly long enough! She was rather crabby at dinner time and didnt want to eat anything but pico de gallo! I didnt want to fight with her about it under the crabby circumstances, so she just ate Mexican pico de gallo, complete with raw onions and jalapenos!

This pic was a little blurry, but I thought it was cute and shows how much she loves pico de gallo!! 🙂
