I love free stuff

When I heard that the zoo was having a free day, I just couldn't pass it up. It wasn't too cold once we bundled up a litte bit. The animals were a bit more active than in the summer. And the kids has a lot of fun. I wish I would've taken a picture of the ostridges (sp?), they were running around like crazy and giving us a really good show.
The famous elephant shot. Each kid wanted their turn sitting on the trunk

So they got their wish

I loved that it wasn't too crowded. I was disappointed that the tigers weren't more active. They were takinga nap. But still cool to look at.
My little man, all bundled. He was chill & loved watching the animals. Kyler is now walking! I'm glad he finally did it, he's been trying for weeks now. He entertains himself so much better. I rarely see him, he's off playing with the other kids, but comes and finds me when he's hungry. Wow, I have awesome kids! They let me get my stuff done & wait patiently for me to be done, so they can have mommy time. They were all so helpful in getting themselves ready one morning when we were in a rush to get out the door, no whining, no tantrums, no fighting. I am so grateful for that morning & pray I'll have many more like it!
