Back to the zoo

What better way to celebrate the start of spring break than spending a beautiful day at the zoo?  It wasn't quite as warm as it had been earlier that week but warm enough!  We had not been to our zoo in so long so it was nice to be back.  I realized as we were getting ready to go that it was our first trip to the zoo in 7 years without a stroller.  Our kids are officially old enough to walk the whole time (and they didn't even complain about it).  Every time I realize how old our kids are getting I am sad and thankful that life is easier at the same time.

These kids love their maps! Well, Will liked looking at it for the first 5 minutes, but then climbing on the fences to see the animals was way more fun.  Isabel kept up with her map the entire time and constantly updated us on which animals were up  next!

We have always loved the gibbons!  They put on quite a show this time too swinging from tree to tree!

My beautiful girl.  When did she get so grown up?

Our zoo added some kangaroos since we were there last.  They were fun to get to see!

This boy is all about his daddy these days.  He wants to be just like Josh, which I am so thankful for!

When we were at the Birmingham Zoo last October Will LOVED the huge tortoises.  He was so excited that our zoo now has 2 as well.  

I'm pretty sure Will brushed and petted every single animal he saw in the "critter encounter."  He loved every second of it!

Isabel was not really interested in touching any animal at first but she eventually decided to brush a little goat and then even started feeding one!

The giraffes didn't come very close to us this time but there was a new baby giraffe that was fun to see!
