Zoo Trip

After renewing our LA Zoo membership for the year, we finally made our first trip. Taking all three boys to the zoo seemed a bit daunting, but after being reassured by DH that the weather was only supposed to be in the 80's, we packed everyone up and went. Well, by the time we got there at 11:00, it was already 92 degrees and the zoo was packed! I don't think we've ever seen it so crowded. James had fun looking at all the animals, with the zebras, giraffes, and elephants making it onto his "must see" list. After seeing the absolute necessities, we decided to pack up and call it a day around 2:00. I don't think that John really got the whole "zoo thing" since he really couldn't pick the animals out from their surroundings, and Peter was wide awake for the first part, but after lunch fell fast asleep. We must have made quite the impression with our single and double strollers! At least I only had to push the single; I'm afraid I might have fainted if I would have had to push the double (with James, Peter & his carseat, plus the weight of the stroller, it must have weighed close to a 100 pounds!!) Here are some of the best photos from the day (no animals since everyone knows what they look like!) :)

John fell asleep before we even got there.

Here's Peter at the beginning of the day.
