First #ZooDay of the Year! {Photo Dump}

Have I mentioned that I love going to the zoo?  It’s true.  It’s one of my favorite things: outside, awesome animals, kids LOVE it, and because my lovely mom gets me a membership for my birthday every year, it’s pretty much free.  We *did* buy those ridiculously expensive souvenir cups for Hobbs and myself on our first visit, but that was only because we can bring them back every time in 2015 to get free refills all over the zoo.  Since we go so often, we’d be losing money NOT buying them.  I’m excited.

Anyway, for our first trip to the zoo, we didn’t tell the kids (mainly, we didn’t tell Cupcakes.  We could have told TR and he’d have no clue, but we wanted to surprise Cupcakes.) we just put them in these outfits and told them we were going to a surprise place.  Hobbs and I wore dinosaur shirts too – his was Jurassic Park and mine Yoshi.  The shirts didn’t clue her in, nor did the drive.  When we started seeing the Zoo Signs, however, she started to put the pieces together.  She was SO incredibly excited!

TR seemed to really enjoy the zoo as well.

TR was really interested in the things right in front of him that he could reach out and touch – this wooden fence in the Gorilla House, a bush, logs, etc.

And this is the best shot we could get of our little family, selfie-style.
