Impromptu trip to the zoo

Today, while playing outside with the kids I suddenly remembered that we had purchased zoo passes. I asked Ella if she wanted to go sometime this week and she replied "today!" I thought about it and thought, "why not." So after the kids took their naps we headed out for the zoo. I knew we wouldn't have a lot of time to spend there before it closed but that's one of the great things about having zoo passes and a zoo that's close by :) I picked a few things to see that we missed last time which were, the petting zoo, the lion, and the orangoutangs.

The kids had fun petting the goats. Ella went up to it, bent down and looked it in it's little goat face and announced, "Hello little goat, I'm here to help you!" It was pretty funny! Micah was super excited when he saw all the goats. He was squealing and moving right towards them.

The last stop on our trip was to see the Orangoutangs. I knew my little monkey would enjoy seeing them but I don't think I knew how much! He was SO excited! He started shouting and bouncing which I think was his attempt at communicating with them? Just further proof that my son is in fact a little monkey :) I wish I would have taken a video of it because it was so funny!

Isn't he the cutest little monkey you have ever seen?
