Sun + Warm Weather = Zoo Craziness

When we were walking into the zoo to meet Amanda and the boys an older couple stopped me to ask if kids around here were off school today. It was pretty overwhelming! The kids filling the zoo weren't just preschool age and younger. There were older kids, too, along with moms and dads and even some people who seemed like they were on vacation. I guess it's possible that people are on spring break now, but it seems a bit early.

We met our friends in the Children's Zoo and the boys ran around, chasing other kids while the moms ate lunch. Louie, Benny and Owen have started a game where they are lions (or some other predatory creature) and they chase zebras or gazelles, or some other poor animal. Unfortunately for the prey, they have no idea who these growling little boys are, and at least in one case the little boy looked absolutely terrified.

Ah, I guess this is something I have to get used to with having these boys 'o mine.

Charlie, spreading his love.

Louie and Owen, pretending to have elephant ears.

So happy to be outside!
