Zoo Trip #4,587

We made a trip to the zoo with the goal of seeing the sea lion show and to feed the giraffes.

The sea lion is very well trained.

Luke needs some practice with how to take a picture in one of these things.

Luke wondered why this giraffe wasn’t moving around much.

Gwynn is ready to feed some giraffes.

“Heyyy guys.”

The giraffe anxiously awaits her mid-morning snack.

Gwynn was a little hesitant to feed the beast at first.

Gwynn warmed up the more she fed her.

“Gimme some more!”

Luke’s turn.

Luke thinks he’s about to lose a finger.

DSC_6916

“Weeeeeee!”

DSC_6917

This girl could easily eat Luke’s forearm in a flash.

Now that she’s had her fill she’s off to do whatever it is that giraffes do.

“That. Was. AWESOME!”

No one in this picture was ready for it to be taken.

Camping (not really)

Mimi, Aunt Sherry and Uncle Kenny went camping at Oak Mountain and we decided to visit them to see if the kids might want to go camping themselves.

Checking out Mimi’s tent.

A view of the set up. They’ve got running water, electricity and a building with a shower and bathroom 50 yards away.

“Who wants to go camping?” Gwynn isn’t so sure yet.

Kenny grilling while Gwynn looks for firewood, which for her was a bunch of pine straws.

It doesn’t take much to entertain Luke sometimes.

DSC_6834

Luke is happy about his hamburger.

DSC_6836

Gwynn is more of a cheese puff person.

Luke prefers his marshmallows raw.

The campsite was next to a playground with several swings and perhaps the scariest slide ever. It must be 30 years old and was narrow at the top with no barriers on the sides so the kids could fall down about 10 feet fairly easily.

“You better gimme that marshmallow!”

Friends…

It’s so nice that Gwynn and Luke are close in age and enjoy a lot of the same things. They’ve started getting along recently and really playing with each other, which is nice.

Here they are eating some Fun Dip…that was fun to clean up.

Grandma and Pop came for a visit

Grandma and Pop came up to watch the kids for the afternoon while Mommy and Daddy met with their realtor (we’re in the process of trying to buy a house). The kids had fun showing Grandma and Pop the lake and playing in the backyard!
