We took the kids to the zoo. Lydia was so excited!
She really wanted to see a “tomoto drajon”. You know. . . a komodo dragon.

Every 2 year old little girl wants to see a big, scary,  poisonous lizard- right?

She could have cared less about the elephants, giraffes, gorillas and all of the other cool animals.

We got to see a huge komodo dragon and a baby one too. She was a happy camper!

She also loved the birds. Birds creep me out! All the fluttering about and poop falling from above just freaks me out!

She also loved the naked mole rats.  Weird- right?

Maybe because you get to crawl in and out of the dark room in a tunnel?

Maybe because they are little and she loves anything little.

Liam was there too. He spent the day in the stroller or being snuggled by someone.

He just enjoys being outside.

Do you like his little dorky hat? I have to protect that baby pasty skin!
It was a really fun day!

Did I mention that we all got in for free?  All of us. . . my mom, dad, Vicki, Matt, Baby Madelyn, Em, Phil, and us.

Pretty rad if you ask me.

The zoo has partnered with the library system here. All you have to do is go to your local library and check out the zoo history DVD and when you return it they give you a family pass to the zoo for free. It is good for 2 adult and 2 kid tickets. You have to use the tickets within 7 days of returning the DVD. It was kinda a pain to get a hold of the DVD though because it is becoming more and more popular as the word gets out. When we finally got a hold of it we worked the system! My sister checked it out and then the next day my mom went with her to return it so that she could check it out right away. We continued doing this.  It saved us $160 in tickets! We will be doing this once a year. What a deal!
