We were actually planning on having a quiet weekend at home with no plans at all for the first time in as long as I can remember, but one of Crystal's coworkers invited the Trioux to the Zoo for their little girls birthday party. On Friday night we talked about it and agreed that it would be a good opportunity to take them and we couldn't pass it up. It was all paid for so we didn't have to worry about dropping $60 or $70 for their first trip.

Sweet little Addi Jack could not get enough veggie straws!
The Triouxs first Merry Go Round. Addi and Jack sat with Mommy and seemed to enjoy it.
Addi hung out with Daddy of course. We had fun riding the Lion.
After riding the Merry Go Round, we ventured out to look at all the animals and go check out the Train ride.
It was pretty hot out so we had to keep the Trioux hydrated. This little Trioux LOVES cold water.
Kate rode with me on the Train. We had a great time looking at all the animals.

Who is that handsome devil with those three little Angels? Elephant
Addi was very intent in finding all the animals
Their favorite, the Giraffes and gazelle
The Trioux actually asked me to take this picture.
Kate's favorites, the turtles! She kept pointing and yelling.

The Trioux did so good that after we left the Zoo we took them to lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings for some wings and fries. Ok, maybe it was grilled cheese, chicken tenders and corn dogs, but they were very good and we had a great day. They slept all the way home and went straight to sleep when it was time for bed!
