I'm wrapping up our pictures with Caroline today and tomorrow. Making last minute plans for San Diego and still working on our itinerary. A two week trip requires lots of research.....coordinating schedules with family and close friends....ironing out the route cross country....booking our cabin at the Grand Canyon....planning a special day at Disney.....so much to think about!
Back to the zoo.....we had a fun visit with Caroline while she was in town. Love this first pic:
We caught the end of the KC Live show and I made a HUGE mistake by asking the snake wrangler to give the kids a closer look. Jack's had nightmares ever since. Worst. Mom. Ever.
But, with Carter asking to hold the snake, how was I to know Jack would be frightened just seeing it?! Lesson learned.
I swear, I'm still working on getting this parenting gig down.
The Koi Pond.....remains our favorite spot.
A snake is spotted.....
Balancing on the branches of the tree!
Carter had to hold himself back from jumping in after it.....just beyond him in this picture.
Into the Discovery Barn. Meerkats are always entertaining......several of them are sunbathing here.
Caroline and Jack watching them.
Love the opportunities for the children to learn about environmental responsibilities.
Another favorite spot.....the kangaroos. Check out the guy to the right guarding his tribe. Remember - no fences or cages.
Obviously, you can get pretty close to them. Notice, this is not my kid. Makes me nervous! I just know one of them is going to hop on over, tuck Lainey in her pouch and take off!
