The Zoo. (I'm saying this with a foreboding tone...get ready.)

Ces and I took the children to the zoo-which was awesome, as always. If you haven't heard, there's a new baby elephant and it is adorable! Seriously, where can I get me one of them right? Anyway, we bought tickets to the train and the carousel, but we were jipped on the train. For reals, do they purposely hide all the animals, or do they really not have any on the train route? Good questions. Discuss amongst yourselves while I upload some pictures.
Tessa, Sebby, and me on the train. Sebastian has no idea what's about to hit him. (Don't worry Sebs, nothing's coming.)
Who doesn't love bronze statues of animals? I know I do! The kiddos on lions. Obvi.
We hit up the carousel after having some sketchy chicken at The Bistro (not to be confused with The Beastro, which is a common mistake.) Ces snuck in the picture. She loves her some carousel-ing.Stone was not happy to leave the carousel, even though we rode it twice. We got some free tickets from some lady who had brought her 17 year old son. She told us he was too depressed to ride on it, and we were like, "well yeah, he's 17 and his mom just bought him some carousel tickets at the zoo-then told complete strangers with toddlers he wouldn't ride on it. I'd be depressed too." But I really wanted to show how desperately Stone wanted back on that thing. He's crying and we are leaving him. He didn't even care.Everyone loves to measure up, but I do it in a more fierce way. A little pop of the hip and it's like Vogue meets Gorillas.This bronze gorilla is always good fun. Sebastian hated it!Tessa was ok with it.And I loved it so much I curled right up in it's lap. (There were two guys that were taking pictures like this before us, so we thought 'Hey, us too!')
Anyway, that was our zoo day in a nutshell. I'm pretty sure we saw some animals and met a crazy little 5 year old in between the picture moments.

You make the zoo look like Disneyland. And that story of the depressed 17 year old guy, ya that's funny.

Jason and I were there with the girls and Zeddy on Monday. I have to agree that the elephant is sooooo cute! Sara asked if she could get one just like him to bring home! Did you see the cute little baby monkey. It's one of those ones that look like a skunk. Is was so tiny! Probably only days old. They didn't even have a sign up announcing the birth yet! Too cute! So many new babies at the zoo this year!

Oh man wish I would have been there... Sad emoticon. Well thanks for at least inviting me. Oh wait, I wasn't, even sadder emoticon.
