Friday we met Brent at the zoo after he got off work. Croix loves the zoo. We always have a great time when we go. We always end up with great pictures of Croix and Brent, with no evidence I was there. So I told Brent it was his job to be photographer! I'm really trying to be in more pictures. Not out of vanity but for my children. One day when I'm gone they are going to be looking through pictures and want to find ones of us together!!!
|The orangutans were putting on a show for us. It was pretty fun to watch them swing and play.|
|Croix thought he was a monkey too and started swinging around on the fencing.|

|Who needs a double stroller.|
|The baboon came right up to us. I thought it was pretty cool. Trying to do a quick excited face for Brent I some how did this. Its too funny not to share!|
|Miss Maizy enjoying a ride, and gnawing on her blanket.|
|They put food out for the tiger as we got there so we got to see him come and eat his dinner.|
The lions were practically posing for us. We did a photo booth and as we were coming out one of the roared. It was awesome!
|Speaking of the photo booth, aren't they fun pictures!?!|
|We were there until after five which is when they close. We kept telling Croix he had to hurry up because the zoo was closing. So then he started telling us to hurry up because the zoo was closing.|
|We had a blast at the zoo!|
|Croix and I held hands while we watched a water light show|
|Maizy was enjoying the evening|
|Oh goodness how I love these two!|
|There just happened to be a band playing that night. We stayed long enough to listen to a few songs. I'm so glad we did. Croix was absolutely adorable!!! He was running all over dancing and laughing and clapping with the biggest smile on his face!|
After I took some pictures the lady next to me said, that must be your little boy. I said yes, he makes my heart happy! She said, he makes all our hears happy! Is he always this joyful? How how I love him!!!
|He would go dance up on the stage and the sit and bounce up and down. He'd run over to me, Mommy I sure do love you! And run back to his Daddy.|
One of the song titles was Big Cat spit in Little Cats Eye. After they announced it Croix comes running over laughing and repeats the title.
As I sat watching him love life and that moment and the music my heart overflowed with love for him, my life and our perfect little family!
My life is so blessed!
|He crashed on the way home, covered in graham cracker!!!|
