I'm simply amazed at how quickly the summer is slipping through our fingers. Thankfully we've made the most of our summer vacation and we've made some great memories. Two weeks ago my mother-in-law stopped by unexpectedly and asked us to visit the zoo with her. We were excited to get out of the house and spend time at one of our favorite places.
Our local zoo is the second oldest in Minnesota and it's undergone major renovation over the past ten years, making it a great destination for thousands of people to visit. Each Christmas, my parents buy us a family membership for the year, so we have the chance to go to the zoo countless times. It's a great gift!
Here are some of my favorite pictures from this last visit. I hope you enjoy this little peek into Minnesota!
|The zoo has a great adoption program and my|
second oldest "adopted" a Prairie Dog a couple
years ago. Here she is with "her" Prairie Dog!
|My twin in green was a little leery of the timberwolves |
(you can see his hand over his brother's arm). When the
wolf came into view he said: "MOVE!" And pulled his
brother away from the fence...
|They both ended up on the ground and I snapped this |
picture as they were getting back up! The next time he
saw the wolf he ran off and said: "HIDE!"
|After the zoo, we went to the adjoining playground. I|
played on some of this equipment when I was little!
|My kiddos have amazing determination - you can see|
some in this picture of my youngest twin!
