Caldwell Zoo with Jake & Allison

Last Monday, Carli, Ava and I met up with Aunt Carolyn, Jake and Allison at the zoo. We had a lot of fun and it was the perfect size for a morning adventure!

Our other half got held up a bit, so the girls and I had lots of fun in the sand pit and at the petting zoo. It was not crowded at all - so we had lots of room to build and smash "sand castles!"

Ava thought holding the shovel was the funniest thing!

Carli filled and dumped and filled and dumped her bucket...


Ava LOVES to "drive," so the real tractor was a big hit!

Carli really surprised me at the petting zoo. The fact that she went in was good - and I really didn't expect her to do anything else. But she marched around the pen like she owned it. She petted a couple of goats and then came upon this goat napping. She promptly announced, "This is my favorite!" And got a little upset when another little girl tried to pet it!
When Aunt Carolyn, Jake and Allison arrived, we headed out to see the animals. Carli quickly attached herself to Allison.


Aunt Carolyn and Carli looking for the giraffes.



I thought she would love the giraffes and elephants, but she just glanced at them and was ready to move on...

Turns out it was the huge turtles that kept her attention - they seriously just sat there and Carli would have sat and watched them all day!
Jake was our official map reader, and Carli was his assistant!
Don't tell Jake and Carli, but it was really Ava that told us where to go!

We had an awesome time at the zoo and were so glad to get to spend the morning with some of our awesome family!
