The Zoo!

So we decided it would be fun to go to the zoo before the weather chilled down too much. It was a blast. I mean, it was exhausting, but it was definitely worth it :) Ellie and I, Stacy and my nephew Aiden, and Liz with the two children she nannies for, Dane and Cali, all headed to the very large zoo about 70 miles away and spent the entire day there. We were probably quite a site with all four children, three strollers, two baby bjorns, and the various baby accessories. The kids loved the animals! Ellie especially adored the flamingos, meer cats, and cougars. The kids did really well, we were so thrilled. We saw so many animals and rode a carousel and the tram, so the boys loved it :) Yay for adventurous field trips in fall!!!

Here we are in the tram. We asked some poor woman to photograph us while the tram was in motion so we could hurry and get the kids off when we stopped. It was quite the process to get on and off, so we mostly walked the five mile zoo. And most of us are looking at the camera, so I call this victory!

I just loved this picture of Aiden. He is such a little cutie pie!

Liz is so cute with Dane and Cali, and I loved this picture of her entertaining Cali while we stopped to look at some animals. She is so great with the kids, and they adore her!
