Preschool fieldtrip to the Zoo.

This past Friday was our preschool's fieldtrip day to the zoo. The kids talked about it all week and the day finally came! The weather looked questionable that morning but I wasn't about to let the kids down after telling them all week we were going. It rained all the way there and I thought to myself this might not be much fun.  But when we actually got to the zoo it was blue skies and beautiful!

The kids all had so much fun and I was so happy that the other mother that went had brought her older children with her. They helped out a ton with the kids so that I didn't have to make my pregnant body keep up with my little runners. I was also happy that she had brought her stroller so we didn't have to carry all our bags and jackets.

Here are just a bunch of pictures I took while we were there.

We had packed a lunch and ate there at the zoo as well. It was a very fun and busy day. By about 3:00 the kids were exhausted. They had walked a looooong ways. They were so tired that we ended up skipping a bunch of exhibits just so we could make it back to the zoo entrance. The kids took turns riding on the shoulders of the two older boys that came and also took turns riding in the jacket-filled stroller.

Here's a picture of Kiera pretending to be asleep for the camera.
As soon as we were in the car Ethan crashed and was out for most of the ride back home. Fun day for the kids! 
And as for Dan and I.... we were able to go out with a couple friends that night for dinner at Famous Daves BBQ. I love Fridays!
