Caroline's Arrival And Our First Zoo Trip

Friday afternoon brought Caroline into town and we're just now calming down from the excitement of it all!

The fam waiting for her to get off the plane....

She's here!!!!!! We waited 18 months to pick her up at the airport again. Couldn't have been happier.

Pictures from our first zoo trip on Saturday....the boys on the tram on their way out to "Africa." We learned that our kids are total sweat hogs during this visit. Perhaps it's the humidity and the fact that they're not used to it. We moved to Colorado when Jack was 5 months old and are just now living in it again. He, more than anyone, starts sweating immediately and looks like he took a bath 10 minutes into the day. Carter and Lainey are right behind him.

Lainey bug and Daddy.

The KC Zoo has a very natural setting.....lots of water.....lots of trees.

Can't wait to try out all they have to offer, including a boat trip, pictured here.

Jack on the "pippo."

On our way out....melt downs approaching...look closely at Lainey throwing a fit!

More tomorrow from our Weston, KS visit and lunch today at the Plaza. Had so much fun!
