Best Place On Earth…& randomness

Last weekend when we were all among the land of the healthy we went to the Phoenix Zoo.  The kids & I had been several times, but Matt had never been able to go with us.  He LOVES the zoo. Probably his favorite thing to do with the kids.

The giraffe/African exhibit is really nice.

Isaac wanted to consult the map at all times and used his hands on his eyes to search for animals as we walked. :)

I found this old palm tree trunk to interesting.  It was like an apartment complex of bird holes/nests.  This relative of a baboon had very unique coloring on his face.

Our attempt at a group shot. Between these 2 photos you can see the personality of my kids.  1st find my drama queen.  2nd find my lack-of-attention-span. 3rd find my one ready to move and find his next dangerous adventure. Seriously kids.

The Phoenix Zoo is the same as the Sedgwick County zoo in one regard…the tortoise exhibit.  Oddly enough one of the slowest animals is consistently the most active of all animals in the zoo.  Luckily I took photos at the first exhibit, because the male/female pair in the 2nd exhibit were putting on a show that I felt like a perv to take pics of. OH MY!  The kids are all “they’re playing”.  Some guy walking up to the exhibit (unaware of what they were doing) says to his kids “hey look they’re moving!” Oh.yes.they.were!  Matt was all “you see how long they live honey…they must know a key to a long life!” DSC09447

Speaking of the Sedgwick County zoo found this at the Komodo dragon enclosure….


Aidan was VERY unsure of this statue…DSC09450

We followed a beautiful day at the zoo with an oh-so-yummy lunch.DSC09454

One of Isaacs favorite things to play involves weapons, wrestling or hunting…I suppose you could say anything to do with “violence”.  His new skill is dying…or playing dead…in dramatic fashion…

The rest of the weekend was full of relaxing.  Isaac also loves to play dress up as super man or HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLK (as he says it).DSC09428 

Aidan our perpetually difficult pooper showed that a mans “library” starts at a young age.  Silly boy!
