Family Day at the Zoo!

It was a beautiful day in TN on Thursday last week and Jeremy took the morning off so that we could take the kids to the zoo for the first time! I’m pretty sure it was more fun for Jeremy and I but the kids had fun too.;) It’s just so exciting to be able to see it through their eyes. Liam was given a Baby Animals DVD from my grandparents a couple years ago and it features animals from the San Diego Zoo and Liam has watched it least 50 times! On the DVD there is a song that describes each animal, so as we saw the different animals of course I had to sing all the songs and I’m pretty sure he loved it! Liam also received a tiger shirt for Christmas last year (he loves tigers mostly because he can growl like one whenever he sees one) so he wore it and I couldn’t take enough pictures of him.

The bamboo was just so neat that I couldn’t resist putting them in the thick of it for a photo. πŸ˜‰

A sweet lady came along and saw me taking that photo of the kids and offered to take a family picture. How nice!

Liam loves meerkats and I think it’s because I sing the song about them from the DVD all the time. πŸ˜‰ He also has a book with meerkats in it so he enjoyed smiling and pointing at them as they ran by us.

Here is a good picture of Jeremy sporting his Chuck Norris look. πŸ˜‰ Β I think he wears the beard well!

Liam is growling like a tiger in this picture and little does he know there are 2 tigers over his right shoulder in the background. Unfortunately they were too far away for him to really care.

Admiring the new flamingo exhibit.

As soon as he saw the elephants he did the sign for ‘elephant’… melted my heart!

Just a cute shot of Liam enjoying the elephants.

The zoo has the greatest play area for kids! Unfortunately it was nap time before we got to play but we will be back to take advantage of it at some point!

One more shot of Liam in his tiger shirt!

I took this as we were leaving the zoo… spring is here!!
