Point Defiance Zoo

On Tuesday Laura had the playgroup scheduled to go to the zoo. The weather sucked and it ended up being just her and her friend Brooke going to the zoo. The weather ended up being perfect. Cool enough to keep the crowds away but no rain. They went to Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma. I generally hate going to this zoo because it is on this huge giant hill and all the cages seem small to me but they have gotten a lot of funding to improve the zoo and apparently it has gotten a lot better. I'll have to make my way back there sometime soon. The kids had a blast.
After this trip to the zoo Laura dropped Ethan off with Derek who took him to the airport where he got onto a plane with my parents for a very quick trip to Michigan. My aunt recently found out she has Pancreatic cancer so my parents wanted to see her and decided to take Ethan along. He's having an absolute blast out there playing with all of his cousins that I don't think he has ever met. We'll have pictures up from his trip soon. My parents took one of my cameras but that doesn't mean they'll use it. They are even having a birthday party for him on Friday. I'm sure he's going to feel like one special boy.
Ethan is "King of the Toddlers"
Too bad there is glass. They look fun to play with.
Kisses for Timon
Bubba helping Addie see the meerkats.
Addie's a snail that moves at very high speeds.
I'm guessing this is a slide, but it looks like Addie is in somethings throat. Zoo playgrounds can be so strange.
(Laura informed me that this is a sea anemone)
Ethan's caught in the web!!!
I have no idea what this is, but the kids liked it
(Again I got informed...this is a nest)
Addie loves the sand but hates to get dirty
Whatcha lookin' at Ethan?
See the fish? Addie says it's right there.
Did you need something? I was looking at the fish.
Hey Ethan! Having fun at the zoo? I'd say the smile says YES!! She was so proud to be up on here by herself, even if only for a second. And off she goesWhat a BIG girl
He is the sweetest big brother EVER!!
We can't forget a couple pictures of Kason
Down the slide she goes
WHEEEEEEE!!!!She's almost thereAnd all done and to the bottom. I think she enjoyed that.Such a sweet boyI think Addie loves the animals almost as much as Ethan loves animals!!
