Zoo trip with Papa, Elsa, and the Skinner family

We went to the zoo today with Papa and Elsa. It was very hot! We went to the flamingos first. Within 2 minutes Owen had already been pooped on by a bird in the tree. Everyone said it was lucky, but I think it's gross! We got to see the monkeys, baby giraffe, snakes, elephants, tigers, lions, bears, fish, turtles...you get the picture. Aidan was so excited, but his excitement was short lived. He would look at the animals for a second, and then say, "Let's go look at something else." Owen was just taking it all in. This was his first trip to the zoo. He did not exactly know what to think about the animals, especially the monkeys.

Papa and the boys also decided to take a little cool off break, and they ran under the water tower! They were all soaking wet! The boys, Elsa, and Shane rode the merry-go-round while Papa and I tried to get just one decent picture without getting sick. After the day at the zoo, we decided to ride the train back to the entrance.

We ended the day with lunch at Chili's and some air conditioning! The boys passed out on the way home. Thanks Papa and Elsa for treating us to the zoo!
