The night before we stayed out too late at a baseball game. We were all having so much fun and we didn't have to get up for work or school the next day so we stayed until the end.
|It was Firefighter Dusty from the new Planes movie.|
|I still think they're awesome. Moody, but awesome.|
|I don't think anyone was going to forget how old he turned that day!|
|We seemed to have caught the lion during his afternoon nap.|
|Grant thought this monkey hanging out way up there was too funny!|
|Grant & Daddy checking out the monkeys|
|And we saw some zebra butt.|
|What boy doesn't love a helicopter he can climb on?|
|The elephants are my favorite :)|
After that we wandered through the trails, had lunch, saw a bunch of stuff, and enjoyed our day together.
|I love this picture!|
|Grant thought the giant eggs were so fun!|
|He loved all the big bugs (they moved too) and waved bye|
to all of them as we moved on to the next one.
|This one you could move with controls, he really liked that.|
|He loved the dung beetle poop too!|
|This geyser was a bit attraction for Grant. I think he could|
have watched it all day! And it sprayed a nice mist too.
It was a nice cooling off point :)
|Grant was point out the seal to a woman standing nearby.|
|Always a favorite with Grant.|
We left the zoo just as they were closing and took the bus shuttle back to the truck. A ride in a bus was the topper to the day for Grant. Husband and I were exhausted but Grant was a little bundle of excitement on that bus. Then he was asleep in the truck before we left the parking lot (I napped too!). When we got home, he got to open the rest of his birthday presents (one of which was a new board game that is now his favorite game to play).
|He told me he wanted Boulder from Rescue Bots...he's loves|
his new Boulder!
