They were so excited! They were attending Madelyn's 4th birthday party at the zoo, but she got sick last minute (poor thing, we felt so bad for her and her sis) and we were already there so we decided to stay. The kids enjoyed the large marble ball rotating in the water at the entrance.
Sage patiently waiting for lunch, love that serious look on her face when she is anticipating something special.
Sophie mesmerized by the monkeys, and Sage behind, being a monkey. She had to take off her glasses to check out every detail! Nick was such a proud brother showing and teaching his sisters. (The boys were a big help- they were thrilled to show their sisters everything, and with all the walking, I didn't rent a wagon, I really appreciated their help!)
The famous Lion drinking fountain. This is a favorite picture because I have one of each of my boys when they were about this age, with their head in the Lion's mouth getting a drink. Wish I had time to find them and scan them in.
They had a great time and can't wait to go again! Hopefully when Madelyn is feeling better and when Paul can join us (he had to work.)
