First-timers

We have really been enjoying our season passes to the Phoenix Zoo.  Our membership allows us to bring friends for free, so I invited my friend Amy and her kids Calan, Cora, and baby Jenna.  Her kids had never been to the zoo, so they were really excited.  We managed to see most of the interesting animals before it got too hot.  And, ironically, Mason was the most excited when he spotted a common bird hopping across the path, and when that rabid squirrel almost climbed into the stroller.  Who needs exotic animals in pens?

We made a stop at the petting zoo, and my kids were familiar with the routine.  Bree always has to make the rounds to ensure that she pets every single goat in the barnyard.  And Mason's not so much into petting them as trying to make eye contact with them and saying "Hey, goat!"

We ended the visit with some play time at the splash pad.  Amy and I tried to stay in the shade, as the day had gotten quite warm by that time.  The kids had a blast.  I was surprised Mason lasted as long as he did, because he's usually too cold to enjoy playing in the water.  Eventually the shivers immobilized him, and we rounded the kids up to drive home.  Great day.

I love it when you post pictures of your kids! They are the cutest! I love that little Bree has to get to each Goat and I can just hear Mason saying,"Hey Goat!"

I'm the luckest grandma on the face of the earth.

How fun! And I love Bree's stylish sunglasses. She's so grown up already! We miss you guys!

I just had to send a second note. Bree and Mason are adorable and I find myself grinning just looking at them.

I can't wait to see them!
