The day the dinos came back...

Today we took a trip to the zoo!!  They have a temporary dinosaur exhibit and it was definitely the highlight of our day.  The kids enjoyed every single second of it!!  Aunt Andi even met us there!!  What a special treat!!  I will let the pictures do most of the talkin'...and get ready for it, because there are lots of pictures!!

Let's roll...
 First stop, reptile house!!


 HUGE turtles...




 Overjoyed she exclaims..
"He's lookin at ME, he sees ME!"


 Madelyn's explanation of what a lizard does...
 Papa look at your girl right up in there with the snakes...
 and Collin too...
 Next stop...
Dino land!
Such a cool 1/2 mile exhibit!  All the dinos move and make noise, very life like!!
 This child was not afraid of these huge life like creatures...
 This boy was also in his glory...
 She looks around and happily tells the little girl behind her 
"that dino is gonna getch you"
 This is the stop where one dino is eating another...
Madelyn blew many kisses as she was sad "he has a owie"





 Most of the time Collin was strides ahead of me, making it near impossible to get pictures of him and Madelyn was just as eager to keep up!!

 Get ready for it dude...
 this dino spits...




 Madelyn what do dinos do??
 They were so close, and very intently watching when all of a sudden ROAR....

 Seeing him so happy made my heart overflow...
 We are in dino land not the chimp house but whatevs...
 So cool...

 Hot dogs for lunch...

 Next stop, chimp house...



 And then suddenly the heavens opened and down came the rain, pouring rain that is...








We were soggy but we sure did have FUN!!
