A Beautiful Fall Day at the Zoo!

Today was a beautiful fall day so Jen and I decided to take the kiddies to Brookfield Zoo. We were so lucky to have fantastic weather and got to be up there for Boo at the Zoo. Alot of kids (including big ones) were dressed in their Halloween costumes; as well as all the employees.

We rode the tram around the park to start our day. Although we didn't take a path that allowed us the chance to see too many animals, it was still fun to ride it around and enjoy the beautiful day!

And of course no trip to the zoo would be complete without a ride - or two - on the Merry Go Round. Addie was trying to decide which animal to ride with Mommy and chose the Lady Bug.

Here she is all ready to go round and round!

Nana always wants to buy the kids a stuffed animal when we go to the zoo. They are getting quite the collection. Today Addie and Blake both wanted a Polar Bear. But Addie's favorite treat this time was a long sucker! We have never let her have one on previous trips but since this was probably the last visit this year, we decided to treat her.

Do you think she is enjoying it?

On our way out she wanted to carry her Polar Bear AND her sucker AND walk like a big girl! Whew, lots to do at once. But I have to admit that this was by far the best trip to the zoo we have had. Both kids were absolutely perfect.

And to end the day I had to capture a picture of the loves of my life! Good Bye Zoo....see you in 2011!!!!!

It was such a WONDERFUL day!!! I am so glad we went again before the season is over. But...I don't think it will be our last this year. I heard the Christmas lights they set up are beautiful. And you know Addie and Christmas...Ha! Love ya mama!
