Detroit Zoo was a "zoo" today!

I took the kids to the zoo today and it was sooooo busy. Of course it was Friday and a beautiful 75 degrees outside. We had so much fun. We went with our friends: The Mayfields, Rhodenizers, and Allisons. Going as a large group makes for large amounts of fun, but also large amounts of chaos... e.g."Where's Grayson?" "Does anyone see Thomas?" "Get back in your stroller!" "Do Fin and Kivi have Zack with them?". These questions and statements were recited repeatedly throughout the day. We took the train at the end of the day, but our group got split up in all the chaos, so I didn't get pictures of that. Maybe next time.

Sleeping Polar Bear

hmmm.... what are these seals doing... anyone?

We got real close to the hippo, but he wasn't that interesting.

Grayson really dug being in the under-seat of Aiden's stroller. Aiden's sister, Madeline ended up in our stroller.

Sofia, Aili, and Elise were so happy to meet eachother at the zoo. They were so cute. They were all wearing braids too!

Grayson's favorite exhibit was the penguinarium.

Grayson and Aiden were so cute holding hands for a while.

Taking time to stop and smell the flowers.

Scarlett stayed in her stroller or course. Here she is with her "friend" Madeline.

What a fun day! Look at the bright side, your little ones are not old enough to ask you to explain what the seals were busy doing!
