our best zoo day thus far!

What an amazing day! Wow. Lots of crazy-fun stuff! We fell in love with Kelly. And it was soooo good to see Amanda again (and meet her wonderful hubby, Steve). Fed a giraffe! Touched an elephant’s behind! Rode a roller coaster! Met the guys who wrote America’s Best Zoos! Petted sharks! Ate free chicken! Got free stuffed cows! Sweated a lot!

Praise you, Lord, for an incredible day! Wowzers to the tenth power!

    @stephaniedawnbasham – It’s the naturally-highlighted hair, the tan arms, ponytail holders on the wrist, and the pushed up sleeves. 🙂 Your zoo will NOT be boring. I just post really colorful pictures and talk about the highlights, and it makes them all seem outrageous. 🙂

    There’s something about that picture of Livi feeding the giraffe that makes her look seventeen and gorgeous. Well, she is gorgeous but she looks like such a grownup from behind. You know, a teenage grownup.

    I feel like I’m living out the fantasy of visiting a million zoos through you. I don’t have to do it myself, I just have to read about and see pictures of your adventures to get the thrill. It’s lovely.

    Our zoo is going to be BORING after all these amazing ones you’ve been to. I guess Daniel and I will have to be extra entertaining to make it worth your time. 🙂

    Gosh it has been years since I have been to that zoo, I mean, I was YOUNG! One of these times, I am going to stow away in your trunk and come along 🙂 I am glad you had a great time, and I love the pictures!

    Those are some way awesome pictures! I LOVE the one of Livi and the giraffes (I’m so jealous!) and Ava petting the pony. I wish I could’ve gone with you. I’ll post pictures of how we spent Labor Day, soon. Was that the first time you actually met Kelly?

    Did you know that the author of “America’s best zoos” was going to be there?? Were you able to chat about your book? I think that is so cool you ran into them!

    I LOVE that your girls are still smiling and loving all this “Zoo Mania”! I think it is awesome! And what an incredible memory for your whole family!
