One of the things that the rest of her family did while she was gone was go to the Denver Zoo. We go to the Denver Zoo a lot, and if you are one who has been following the blog for awhile, you've seen lots of pictures of the kids at our Zoo over the years. We are "members", so when we go, we just show them our card and they let us in "for free". Obviously, we pay yearly, but trust me. It has saved us a small fortune to be Zoo members rather than paying each time we go.
Here are some pictures from this time:
This is actually one of their favorite parts of the zoo.
In front of Dolly (the elephant)
Another of their favorite parts of the zoo is climbing on this hippo.
And they like to spend time jumping.
Action shot. I'm sure Tyler took a couple steps after he landed and claimed that he can jump as far as the ostrich.
This bird and I had a conversation about women and how sometimes they desert you for a week making you take care of the kids.
This guy was pretty grumpy. Just like me. I wonder if his wife had deserted him so she could sail around tropical waters.
This is one of those binoculars to see lions better. Connor looked at me instead.
We see peacocks all the time at the Denver Zoo, but rarely do we see them showing off like this.
Big kid attacking the bears.
Little kid being attacked by bears.
Connor just wanted me to take this picture.
Here is what mama was doing while we were wandering around the zoo: Drinking.
The SheppyBrew Beer Model endorsing a non-SheppyBrew beer. Traitor!
