Our friend Heather and her Mom took us to the Brookfield Zoo in celebration of all the kids birthdays. They weren't able to make it to the party on Saturday so we met them on Monday. It was a hot and humid day. Michael was on antibiotic but was still feeling yucky. Diana offered to keep him home and watch him but he wouldn't give up going to his favorite place ever, the zoo.
Learning about turtles

There was a little splash shower area. It was so nice to cool the kids off!
Looking at the reindeer
Jumping in the water. She was soaking wet!
There was an area where you could be with the wallabies and the emus. It wasn't fenced off or anything. The kids were able to pet them.

Attempting to get a picture with all of us.
We asked someone to take a picture of all of us. She got most of us minus a little of Michael
It was so fun to see Heather and Mary again! I think it's been two years. Much too long!
