on friday, may 6th, we got to go to the zoo with some of the boys' cousins. they had a blast! and canon had looked forward to it for days. as the day got closer, we started getting word that a lot of area schools were also going to be there that day! so instead of going first thing in the morning, we chose to wait until about 2:30 that afternoon in hopes that it would be a ghost town then. it worked! despite no naps or short naps, i don't remember any significant melt downs! we are so thankful to live so close to family who are close friends! canon loves seeing ella and "orna" (nora) often :)
canon checking out his favorite animal, the snowy owl. isn't this the sweetest pic of ledger?! he loves petting any animal and would've sat there all day if we would've let him.
daddies and kiddos...
canon only gets close to fake animals!
we headed back to our house and grilled out and let the kids play some more. it was such a fun day!
