Family Trip to the Zoo

On Sunday, June 23rd, we got to go to the zoo with the Foster clan after church!  Uncle Ron’s work, Williams Co., was having a company picnic.  This was Cash’s first trip to the zoo and the first trip that Foster really remembers!  It was a hot hot day but we had a blast!

Ron, Christi, Judy, Jill, Emma, Robin, Foster, and Nana (we were missing Boom but hopefully he’ll join us next time!)

Nana made these awesome neck ties that were frozen.  She found the pattern on-line and made them the night before.  The adults thought it was a little bit unfair that she only made them for the kids! :)

We loved watching the chimps from a distance!

Cash and Aunt Judy.  Cash was a good sport, he didn’t fuss at all until we were just about to leave- he finally told us he was hot and tired!

Foster checking out the giraffes- I love this new giraffe exhibit- it would have been even cooler if the giraffes had stood up!

I always LOVE the penguins!  Aren’t they so funny?

Flamingos- Nana talked to them about the fact that they stand on one leg- although none of them were doing it at the time!

Emma loved looking at her zoo map and choosing where to go next.

Foster was SO excited to ride the zoo train.  Can you tell by the sweet look on his face?

Waiting to ride the carousel- we could ride as many times as we wanted for free!

Thanks Ron and Christi for a very fun-filled day!  The kids are still talking about all of the animals.
