after the USC game, we stayed overnight and headed to the zoo the next day!
about 10 seconds after this picture, this bird pooped on wil's shirt. womp womp.
i love ella's face in this picture. the kids loved feeding the birds.
they found this little hole in the tree and wanted to hang out there for a while, but they had to get out and let some other kids in too.
time to feed the giraffes! this guy almost took a bite of toby's hand.
the bigger kids got a chance to pet this nice fella.
gianna kept saying, "momma, i want to show you the spinny thing", and i didn't catch on until about halfway through the zoo that she was talking about the carousel. it was at the entrance and she just couldn't wait to get back there and take a spin. doesn't she look so much older here?
roman tried his hand at climbing a tree. it was tougher than it looked.
the rock wall was a little easier. for him, anyway! i would have probably only gotten about 2 feet up...haha.
finally, one last thrill before we head home.
she fell asleep about 10 minutes after we got in the car. she was pooped from all the fun we had. roman stayed awake, but i think he was just thinking of all the fun he had over the weekend with his best girl, mady. it was a really fun weekend, hopefully, we will do it again!
