Again with the Zoo

This past weekend we decided that we needed to get out of the house, so we took the kids to their third trip to the zoo in a week.  They didn’t complain, though.  First we went to see the sea lions, then we stopped by to see a show where they brought out a big snake and an owl.  To my shock, the kids sat mesmerized for the show.

For some reason, the zoo just never gets old for any of us!

Cute! Our kids adore the monkey exhibit as well. Who needs elephants when you've got a monkey house. :)
