First Zoo Trip of the Year

a few days before Mike came home we went with some friends to the zoo and took advantage of the beautiful spring weather.  
3 mommies, 5 kiddos, 1 toddler, 1 infant and a Pop Pop 
it was a really fun day!
the bigger kids were much more interested this time around in climbing the rocks and playing with all the special activities and hands/on exhibits than they were in the animals
 but of course you gotta stop and watch the lions 

 Davis loved the animals though! OO OO EE EE :)
 Pop Pop hung back with Davis and made sure he was able to see everything.  They are best buddies :)
 rhino rides

 The zoo had just opened it's new bug exhibit and everyone was excited to see some HUGE BUGS!
 well everyone but this princess...she wasn't too into the big bugs...reminded me a lot of taking her to see the dinosaur exhibit 2 years ago. 
 The Bug Man...

 grasshopper faces
 and everyone's favorite part was the dung balls!

 we always gotta ride the carousel 
 The new play area is also open now and we thought it was great!  The kids had a blast playing in the water.  This will be perfect as it gets hotter this summer.

 brody's bfast shirt got lots of attention.  
 water painting

 and of course the seals are always fun to watch too!
