A Rite of Passage

A field trip to the Birmingham zoo is a rite of passage for 5-7 year olds in central Alabama.  Last Friday, the girls and I joined about 20 bazillion other K-2nd graders at the zoo.  We had a great time!  Evie loves to go anywhere and Kallie is our very own little Dr. Doolittle.  Both girls were in heaven and I was happy to be along for the ride and take the pics.

Nothing like starting the day with a little tree climbing...I thought they kept the monkeys IN the zoo!


Riding the carousel, so nice we did it twice!


Kallie's most favorite part - feeding the giraffes.  They are her favorite animals.  One day when she is a vet, she says, she will lasso one and ride it across the savanna.  I do not doubt her!


Evie feed the giraffes, too.  She did not enjoy the experience!


By the end of the day we were tired; but, it was great!

What a way to round out a great 1st grade year!  These girls are awesome!  And just so you know I haven't forgotten him here is a recent picture of Holdyn...

Watch out Daddy, one day he'll be tying you into a knot!

As usual, it's crazy around here.  School ends in a few days, Nana's coming to visit, and the house renovations are FINALLY coming together.  New adventures are on the horizon!

--Much Love,
