Zoo Day with Elias

We went to the zoo today! Uncle Scott dropped off Elias around 8:30 so the boys got to play together for about an hour before we headed to the zoo. Declan was so thrilled to have Elias at his house that he danced so hard he ran into the wall. Here he is giving Elias a hug! 

The boys really wanted to read some books with me. After I read to them, they read to each other! 

Grammy came to our house and picked us up to go the zoo. Here we are at the zoo's entrance! 

Of course Declan is gazing at Elias 


When we first arrived to see the lions, the three cubs were lounging in the grass. They got up and walked right up to the glass so we could get a close up view of them. The dad stayed on the rock and snoozed.

Next we went to go see the tigers. Grammy's friend Sharon joined us! Here we are learning about the sloth bears

Next we went to see the otters and the bears! It's always a favorite.


After the otters we went to eat lunch and Sharon went home! 

Next we visited the penguins, another favorite!

Then we visited the gorillas! 

Declan loves to hug Elias 

We left the zoo and stopped by the rose garden on the way back to the car. Declan ran all over the garden sniffing flowers, rolling in the grass and having a grand time. Elias took a snooze.

Elias, wake up and play! 

Running to Grammy

Elias finally woke up to play! 

And that was the end to our lovely day! Two tired boys slept in the car on the way home and woke up to chase each other while we waited for Uncle Scott to pick up Elias!
