Josh had band practice at our house the other day, so the girls and I needed to go find something to do for 4 hours.  I have a love/hate relationship with his band practices at our house.  On one hand, I have to get the girls out at naptime and go do something which requires planning and I'm not so great at that.  But on the other hand, it forces us to get out of the house and go do something.  Spend quality time together.  No TV.  No computers. Just us girls, hanging out.

This week we decided to head over to the zoo.  It was a gorgeous spring day and it's been a few months since we'd been to the zoo.  The girls were older and Annie would have a greater appreciation of the animals.

Audrey was very excited to see the elephants.  I think the elephants are a great animal for little kids because they're so big you can't miss them.  And she doesn't have to be held up to see over the railing.  The giraffes are the same way.  But the lions and tigers are always hiding and sleeping, and the enclosure is designed in such a way that she can't see most of it.

Audrey also had her own camera with her and she took some pictures too.

(I apologize ahead of time ... this is a photo heavy post - enjoy)

A visit to the zoo is awesome no matter how old you are.

My two favorite photos are of Annie & Audrey at the fence and then of Audrey sitting on top of that hilarious frog!
