The Zoo

Monday, June 8, 2009

Saturday, we joined up with members of my side of the family, for a fun-filled day at the zoo.Here's the clan from left to right:
{Back Row}: Mike, Cayman, Me, Laura, Aunt Linda, Uncle Martin, Tyson, Paul, Angela, Grandma, Ben
{Front Row}: Dan, Shon, Grandpa Kary, Madison, Grandma Cindy, Stacey

We had a blast!

Of the 230 pictures that we took, here are my favorites:

A baby monkey hanging on while the Mama swung from rope to rope.

Our picnic area!

Penguins, my personal favorite!


We rode the carousel...


then the train.


The traditional picture of Madison and I standing on the fake dung pile.


Tyson was the videographer. With his witty sarcastic commentaries, I am sure this will be a much need-to-see film (with popcorn, of course).


How did Cayman like the zoo?

She wanted to touch everything!

The door way chains...

the fish...

the jellyfish...


But all that touching was so exhausting, but no worries because...

she has the life of luxury.

AAAAMMMMAAAZZZIING pictures!!!!

That zoo looks great! I wish our closest zoo had all that. We have to go to the zoo(2hours away) for some and the aquarium (4.5 hours away) for the rest.

I am so glad you had such a great time. I love Cayman's dress...so cute!

Looks like so much fun. We took Jonathan to the zoo around 1 and the only thing that got his attention was the tiger pacing. He could have cared less anything else. Cayman looks like she had fun and you do you and Mike!

Cayman is sooo cute with he fit up in the air like that. Of course Kadyn does the same thing. haha.

Alice said...

Were those pics of the Cincinnati zoo? I heard that that is a good one. We go to the Louisville Zoo alot, my kids love it! Actually, the train fell over last week and hurt a bunch of kids, that was so scary hearing that! Glad Cayman is doing good!

Michelle said...

Oh, I love the zoo!!! It looks like you had a wonderful time. And who doesn't love the penguins? It's great to see you taking a break from all your hard work and just enjoying yourself for an afternoon!

Jerry, Tia, Kaiden And Hunter said...

Looks like so much fun! I wish I could live the life of our kids again and get pushed around. I am sure then I didn't appreciate it! I tell them to enjoy it now, but they never listen! What do I know...I am only mom! haha

Monica said...

I loved seeing Cayman sitting up so tall on the merry go round!

We love the zoo and can't wait till our Florida trip to hit the Tampa Aquarium.
