Oregon Zoo or Bust!

Mezmorized by the fishies!

On the zoo train! ALL ABOARD!
Nana packed Mason for a bit!
Just relaxing!
There's a bear behind us--he just didn't seem to make it in the shot!
I can sniff out a tractor anywhere!
A quick short-cut....but a little small for one of us

Yesterday I sort of got a bee in my bonnett. I really wanted to get the kids out to enjoy what's left of the nice weather, so we packed up and headed to the Oregon Zoo (with Nana in tow--). It takes almost an hour to get there, and we didn't really get out of the house until close to noon, but it was worth it. It was warm and the sun was shining (I use the word warm loosely and in the Oregon sense). When we got to the zoo, we hustled right into the gift shop to get Logan some socks--somehow he was barefoot when we showed up at the zoo and his socks were MIA. From there we did a little exploring, grabbed some lunch and went to check out the new baby elephant...cute, but still huge! It was great to check out the animals and ride the zoo train. Mason and Mya seemed to really enjoy the zoo too. They hardly made a peep as they took in all the sights, sounds and smells (I wish it were only the smell of popcorn) the zoo has to offer. All in all it was a great day, and I was so glad we went-- and yes, Logan found a tractor to drive even at the zoo!
