Memorial Day Trip to the Zoo!!!

Every year we daydream about camping over Memorial Day weekend and then when it comes down to it..........we look for last minute campsites online and come up empty handed (nothing the 3 p's wouldn't fix :), seems we'd learn our lesson by now. I think we must still be traumitized from the last actual reservations we made for Memorial day weeked probably 3 years ago, we were so excited to go and proud of our pre-planning only for it to pour down rain that whole weekend, so we've been a little skeptical ever since then.

Anywho......we always end up having a nice weekend! This year we went to the ZOO!, cheered on our friends participating in a triathalon and Ryan and Joel made their annual run down "The Waterloo rapid". It was a beautiful fun weekend, oh and my camera broke and my sweet husband allowed me to splurge on a new one (not without me being accused of breaking the other one on purpose, which I did not do)nonetheless he hooked me up and I am grateful!

Bella boo and Lyssa Lou with the resident Zoo bears!

I love the upside down sunglasses and the cheeser grin on Lys! Her upside down glasses get more comments than you would believe, but that's how she likes em best! Everyone needs a "Line Leader" and that's just what Lys was complete with her map and all!
Bella and Daddy! She likes to pull his hair on this ride!
Alyssa showing us Gloria the Hippo!
This was awesome, this little guy curled up in this little box! Too cute.
Me and the girlies watching the bird show, which made me extremely uncomfortable as A) I do not like birds and B) I promise a stupid bird dive bombed my head and almost mamed me.
Ry and Joel goin into the rapid
Whoaaaa nellie, just another day at the office!
Close-ups of the girls! Had fun trying out the new camera!!!



It looked like the PERFECT day for the zoo! Gotta love that sun.
Nice new camera! Way to score. Your man knows how to take care of you.
