Field Trip at the Zoo

Today was a busy day! I chaperoned Kindergartners at the Boise Zoo. I got to meet some of Jacob's friends. I also got to meet the little boy (and I won't say names) who likes to pick on my son. I was extra nice to him :D I don't normally say mean things about people but after meeting his mom at an kindergartner event I realize where is personality comes from. They are just not the nicest family! But regardless of my momma "drama" we had so much fun!

I think that naturally I just want to have a little talk with him and tell him to be nice, but I am not going to be one of those kind of moms and I will let my son stick up for himself...
My two sisters joined us with their kids. The zoo opened a new exhibit this last year and now we have lions and giraffes (please don't laugh) I know that it is pretty lame but we were excited here in lil ol' Boise!

My shot of the day... This tiger was inches from me! I just wanted to snuggle with him... Considering this was taken through glass... I think this turned out amazing! He is so beautiful.


The whole clan....


Here is McKynlee chasing after the geese
Jenny always ready to strike a pose for the camera.
Taking time for a carousel ride with the kids.
She could totally be a mommy of twins! Look at her handling both babies!
My handsome little man! He had so much fun today.
These penguins were hard to capture through glass but this one turned out kind of neat.

Another one that I like. They are so neat to watch.

Here is Jaedon staring off in the distance. He reminds me so much of his dad here.
This shot was so hard to get! These giraffes were inside and we had to look at them through glass. They were pretty far off in the distance... so thankful I had my telephoto lens! The reason it is in black and white... is because it wasn't a very good picture. The giraffe on the left is licking the wooden wall!?!?

I love this tortoise! He has been a part of the Boise Zoo for so long now!

Here is my niece Mckynlee.

Great zoo pictures! I love the giraffes in B&W. I looked at your other pictures too, how fun that they have a big nest that they can sit in. We're taking Taylor to a big zoo this summer, I can't wait.

Hey Steph. Thanks so much for your kind words. Love the zoo photos. I can't wait to take my little guy to the zoo. Hopefully we'll be going soon. And about that little bully....it's a shame he doesn't have someone positive to call mommy. I can also tell that you're a wonderful mommy and your kids are so fortunate to have you.

I loved this post! It did make me feel a wee bit guilty because Kaishon's favorite place in the whole world is the zoo. And I can't stand it. Just because it takes forever to drive to the city! I really should take him though. All of your pictures are so lovely!
