Jack is into spelling everything these days.  So when I told him we were going to the zoo, he told me he was excited to go to the Z-O-O.  
Well done, son, well done.

This is the second time to the Zoo, the first time was documented here.

Since it was our second time, and we weren't with a large group, we could go at our own pace.  We could stop and play at the playground, watch the guinea pigs try to escape when the zookeeper opened the door to bring them food, and leave before the meltdowns.  

There was only one regret from today.  It has been raining a lot lately and it was quite muddy, and Thomas fell into one of the puddles.  Mud was EVERYWHERE.  I wish I had a picture of that disaster, but alas, I was too busy consoling and cleaning to take pictures.  

It was a good day.

Not from our Zoo adventure, but an awesome picture, from a few days ago, of the clouds over the ocean. 

Extreme eating.

This was one of the more fascinating things we saw today- hooks on a zipline down to the lions.  
Feeding time.

Have you ever seen crocodiles/alligators that almost look dead because they don't move at all while you are watching them?  Well this guy opened his mouth to show off his teeth right when we were standing there.  Good show. 

What I wore.  

After our run in with the mud- you should have seen the other guy.

I desperately need a pedicure, but the Marine Ball is coming up, and I am saving myself so that it will be perfect.
