a day at the zoo

This last weekend we went to the Point Defiance Zoo with my sister. We usually go the Woodland Park Zoo (it's a little closer). But I'm glad we went to Point Defiance because it was really beautiful. Look at the view! Gorgeous.

Bennett didn't really know what was going on but he loved all of the different animals and people. He is so much fun to go places with. He's always so curious about every thing.

I did my best to get some shots of the animals but it's hard when their all behind glass and fencing!







Bennett's hair in the righthand photo looks like Sloth from "The Goonies" Ha ha.








{oh and how many of you have jungle/safari themes in your child's rooms? i was thinking of putting together a little collage of the photos i've taken at the zoo's this summer as a gift for my really good friend (who's has a "sarafi" theme in the nursery). would that be something you all would like to receive?}

Beautiful pictures! My favorite is the one of Bennett reaching up with his mouth wide open with Philip!

BTW, Logan has a jungle themed room! I think you saw it? I would buy some pictures from you! :)

The one of him in his Daddy's arms, making that face. So cute! His little fuzz on the top reminds me of a baby orangutan.

I got my Nephew a zoo pass for Woodland Park for Christmas. They've used it once. I'm kinda disappointed in that. Look how much fun Bennett had!

I love the pictures of Bennett and Daddy looking through the glass at the water. The colors came out amazing in the pictures! What a fun day! Makes me want to go to the zoo!

Your photos are beautiful! I too went to the zoo with my family over the weekend and have put up two photos thus far. My husband was the one who took photos of the animals over the weekend and most of our zoo shots, but I got the chance to take a few. I absolutely love your shots! My favorite is baby in the window on daddies lap. You can see the reflection! That's great!

Looks like a lot of fun. I think that idea of printing photos is a great idea.

yes! we did go to the same zoo! i had never been to the point definace until tuesday, it's a pretty awesome zoo! your pictures are much better than mine though, you captured that tiger beautifully.

i had so much fun meeting you and the other bloggers. you are so sweet and bennett is even cuter in person and i just loved both of you so much. if we lived in washington agian i would want to hang out with you two all the time. hopefully we'll be back so soon (for good!) and we can play whenever we want! miss you two already!
