This zoo is a LOT bigger than the one in Albuquerque, but we still got to see a lot. Right at the entrance there were these turtles sunning on a log:
Then on the inside they have this Monkey House where you can walk through the monkey habitat. It was so cool!
This little guy was right by the path. Landon and Parker were both very tempted to jump into the bushes and cuddle him.
Landon was begging to go on the carousel so I let him take one ride. The whole time he was just grinning (but trying not to grin). He thought it was pretty awesome.
This is the little kids lagoon they had - it was great for the boys to be able to cool off. They both got pretty soaked!

Parker was super excited to throw something without me yelling "no!" immediately afterwards!
There were quite a few little flies buzzing around...of course, this is Landon's first reaction :)
And this is Parker's reaction to the flies. Do you see the jam and peanut butter all over his face? Every time a fly would come close he'd smash his sandwich into his forehead. It was pretty funny!

And this is what the kids will find in the morning:
Isn't it amazing that leprechaun footprints actually change size with every step? They truly are magical creatures. It's also amazing how tempting it is to make the leprechaun note sound like it was written by a pirate. "Here be a few treats mateys". I'll have to study up on my Irish speak. Happy St. Patty's Day everyone!!

...and Parker thought it was a great idea. He used it as dip for his apples and sandwich. It only makes 'em stronger right?
Rebecca and Andrew are the older heroes of course! Landon, especially, really looks up to those two.
When they get home from school they get super excited. Landon kept running up to Rebecca saying "Hey Becca! Will you come play with the Batman cars with me?". She is always so sweet to play with him for awhile. Landon has decided that he loves anything that Andrew likes - mostly because it means Andrew is right there with him.
