Anyways, here are the pictures we took on the weekend. It wasn't exactly the trip I had planned. I had envisioned us going to all the fun projects and animal shows the zoo had set up. But, in the end (and beginning) we decided to just go with what Ash wanted. And what Ash wanted was to run around, looking through each glass and set of bars. That's all. So, we did. And she loved it. I would like to say Britt loved it too. But that would be a lie. Britt prefers being at home with as little people to compete with for her mother's attention as possible. It's a good thing that Britt is the second child. She wouldn't have moved over to make room for a sibling as gracefully as Ash did.
Here is how the antennae worked out. I was/am very pleased.
On our way in. The butterfly and her flower. Teehee.
Sweet little Britt. Her head gear is too big. I kinda rolled it back at the top to help it fit better. If I make it a priority, I may try to take it in a bit before the next festivity.
Ash, watching the polar bears swimming around. She was just eatin' it up and takin' it in!
Butterfly under water. Watching the seals.
The only picture we took of an animal without one of our kids also in the shot. Ash was quite mesmerized by this Arctic fox. It is very pretty.
This is how to keep a baby happy when you forget to bring any toys.
Saying bye to the peacock on our way out.
That's it. So cute, right?
