The week after Christmas, I was still off work and was feeling accomplished since I got all my Christmas decorations down and put away so the girls and I decided to go have some fun at the zoo. We invited Jenn and Nolan and offered to take Zayden as well since Deanna had an appointment, and he was in town visiting. I was a little nervous about our adventure as we drove to the zoo bc it was pretty chilly and drizzling, but when we got there the rain stopped, and we had a great day. The animals were all up and moving around enjoying the brisk weather, and the kids held up great. All in all it was a successful trip.
Bundled up and ready to start our zoo adventure

They all loved the fish tunnel and crawled through several times while Nolan was taking his bottle.
Nolan made a short appearance outside his stroller while we were inside the natural encounters bldg.

Ad and Zayden wanted to take a picture with every animal monument in the zoo. haha
Nana offered to let Ad spend the night with her that night since we were all heading up the next day to celebrate Christmas. As soon as we got home from the zoo, we packed her bag, and she sat looking out the front door anxiously awaiting for Nana to come pick her up.
