    Last Fall at the Zoo with Friends ~Tulsa Zoo

    Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

    The closer we got to our adoption date last year, the more I did not like editing photos that I could not share.

    So a lot of photos were forgotten.

    Including these photos I took when on a trip to the zoo with friends last fall.

    Toddlers interacting is so funny.

    Oh good, she likes us.

    As a mom and photographer, I always try to get pics of my mom friends with their kids.

    We don’t get in enough shots.

     I am thankful for flexible friends during this journey.

    Busy Mornings and Pool time.

    Monday, July 31st, 2017

    I took the kids to our church’s campmeeting for the morning services last week.

    Which meant our afternoon’s were filled with getting school done(we are doing year round school).

    We listened to a lot of audio books going to and from the morning meeting.

    Thursday we ended up staying home and some of the kids played in the kiddie pool in the afternoon.

    We have a LOT of cicadas right now.

    It was a busy week but the kids had service also.

    The kids enjoyed their service and I got a break almost everyday last week for an hour or so(which has never happened).

    Win win for everyone.

    OKC Zoo ~Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

    Thursday, July 13th, 2017

    My husband needed to go to OKC for work for three days so we decided to join him for a few of them.

    We had not been to the OKC Zoo in a while so we stopped there first after dropping him off.

    Those water bottles were in their mouths 90% of the time…

    We basically go to the zoo to sit on animal statues.

    Do they have an animal statue zoo?

    That would probably be a big hit.

    The zookeeper tried but could not get any birds to go on “M”.

    Lots of little fingers were pecked.

    Ha

    It was a pretty hot day(in the 90’s) but the kids drank a lot of water and they had misting stations everywhere.

    azooDSC_1489 azooDSC_1507

    The twins favorite thing to do at zoo’s is feed fish.

    Thankfully this zoo had fish feeders like the Tulsa zoo.

    I feel like the Giant Anteater should be something in a star wars movie.

    So odd looking.

    azooDSC_1528

    The misting station was making her hair look white since the little droplets were just sitting on top of her hair.

    azooDSC_1539

    Snakes!

    I really like their Oklahoma exhibits.

    It helps the kids know what animals we have in our state.

    azooDSC_1570 azooDSC_1576

    The girls liked the prairie dogs.

    This boy likes to read every sign.

    He reminds me of the robot in Short Circuit.

    “Need input”

    azooDSC_1586 azooDSC_1589 azooDSC_1593

    This bear was sprawled out on the glass, to keep cool I would assume.

    azooDSC_1596 azooDSC_1608

    I was reminded why I don’t go often alone with five kids but we survived!

    That’s the important thing.
