Zoo with Papa

My dad came to visit for a 3-day weekend. Alexander had school Friday morning but that afternoon we were able to make a trip to the Zoo.  

Baby Elephant Statue. Alexander just can't get enough of those statues.

Jacob looking cute while refusing to look at the panda right behind him.


Papa spotting the little man in a climb.

Here is Alexander actually expressing mild interest in the animals for once. Most of the animals at the zoo don't move very much and since you can't even climb on them like you can on those awesomely fabulous statues, they hold little fascination for my logical boy.

(The penguin hats are a Christmas Card "Costume" attempt. One of these days I will get a picture of my sons dressed cute and looking at the camera at the same time. I swear it!)

We found out adults ride free with a paying child (under 42") on the zoo train. I totally didn't know that before or I would have taken the boys a long time ago.

Halloween (1.5 Weeks Late)

We were sick the week of Halloween so I wasn't able to get any pictures of the boys in their costumes the day of (although we did Trick or Treat for about 30 mins just in our cul de sac.) So, a couple days later I dressed them back up and went for a visit/photo session with Grandpa. May I just say, I've got me some cute kids!
