Goin' to the zoo, zoo, zoo...

We had our first BEAUTIFUL spring weekend this past weekend, so we packed up the kids and headed to the Brookfield Zoo! We met two of Matt's sisters there with a whole bunch of kids (lol). There were 4 adults and 9 kids! We had a blast! I am so looking forward to a spring and summer filled with fun outdoor activities.

We're here!!! Now lets's go see some animals! What...we are waiting for Auntie Laura!?!?!

Cousin Kyle posing for the camera while waiting for Auntie Laura.

I think this has become an all=time favorite photo of our little princess! It shows the tomboy side of her...she's not always ALL princess.

Cousin Emma hamming it up for the camera while waiting for Auntie Laura!!!

Cousins Joey and A.J. looking extremely bored while waiting for Auntie you see a theme Auntie Laura...ha ha...just kidding. You know we love you!

Brayden looking too cool while checking out the lions.

Cousin Joey consulting the map to decide which way to go.

Layna enjoying a refreshing drink while wondering if she will ever be able to get out of the stroller.

Cousins Emma and A.J. looking at the animals together. Twins really are inseperable.

Getting tired of walking, but refusing to sit in the stroller probably knowing he would fall asleep as soon as he sat down. It was WAY past nap time!

Cousin Abby in all her seriousness! She always looks deep in thought!

Both kiddos passed out almost immediately upon sitting down in the car. They had a great time, but sure were tired.
