My sisters and I loaded up all the kids and headed downtown to the Nation's #1 zoo...Pretty sure the whole town was there too. And why wouldn't they be?? I ran into several friends with their little ones, fun day :-)
McKenzie and Macy sitting on the Orangutan's lap
Macy chowing down on Aunt Keri's subway.
checking out the peacock...
Dylan and Dalton stuck in a web
Kenzie & Anna posing by the RR crossing sign.
I surprised Anna was having so much fun as she has a severe fear of trains. :-)
splashin' in the puddles
now why on earth didn't I put McKenzie's boots on today. She wears them every other day, so of all days, why not TODAY!! arrgh :-( Anna was having fun with hers though!
It didn't take long before McKenzie joined in anyway. boots or no boots
"Mommt, I see you"!
"I spy with my little eye" McKenzie said...
McKenzie LOVED all the people watching the zoo had to offer :-)
lovely...oh well...what are ya gonna do??
in the aquarium
some of the big kids (especially Landon) thought Macy was more entertaining than the stingrays and sharks. hehe
looking at some bright fishies in blue water!
Little Landon was so sweet and just LOVIN' on Macy. He is going to be a big brother very VERY soon. :-)
There's the culprit
She was NOT happy! But her finger's still in tact...so she learned a good lesson today...
Macy was witness to the "attack"...so she learned a good lesson too (and got a chuckle) :-)
Dalton and the baby elephant
oh Anna, you're so pretty :-)
Me & my babe!
McKenzie saying "momma, you're gonna fall". with a BIG smile on her face. STINKER!
We didn't get to see the real butterflies today :-( Not sure why, but it was closed...hmmm. maybe next time.
Ally & Macy...I LOVE her silly expression here. too funny! What ARE you thinking about kid?
Macy lost her sock...how am I not surprised. But she didn't seem to mind one bit :-)
What would have been a very nice "Witt Family" portrait until McKenzie crashed it. haha
Ally, McKenzie, Anna, Danielle, Macy, Dalton, Dylan & Brook.
Unfortunately both Colton and Erika had school :(
aawwww....do you think she's loved by her aunts??
I can't tell :-)
Thanks Henry Doorly we like your zoo :-)
After the zoo we took a quick power nap. I swapped Macy for Danielle and we ventured to gymnastics class...got a yummy ice cream treat afterwards. In february?? YES!
p.s. - oh and the night before Kenzie had her good friend Sarah over for a sleepover party. The two girls were sooo good and had soooo much fun. And yes, they were in bed by 8:15pm. nice, I'd say it was a success :-)
