In front of the conservatory at the zoo, they had beautiful flowers, giant lilly pads and a wonderful waterfall. We saw someone getting their wedding pictures taken there. It was a hot day to be dressed all up with makeup and all....
Ella and Jack were looking at the giraffes and Crystal asked them if they could stretch their necks as long as the giraffes (great opportunity for a Kodak (ahem, Nikon) moment).
We did not bring a stroller with us for Jack and Ella. Crystal had one for Everett, but it was a good opportunity to burn all of their energy for the afternoon. This is after taking an ice cream break.
"I'll beat you up the stairs", Ella said to Jack. Seems to be her new game now. She will beat Keith and I to the bathroom, to the bedroom, to the kitchen....anywhere she has to go. Oh, and she always wins (whether she does or not), or there is hell to pay.
They had a big tent at the zoo full of butterflies. It was the coolest thing. They were flying all around us. Unfortunately, this is the only shot that seem to come out decent. Too bad, I didn't get the back of him to show off his beautiful wings. Don't miss him on the flower there to the left....
Everett sat right down at the little pond in the conservatory. Stuck his feet in and all. He was not afraid to get his feet wet. HA! Sorry, couldn't resist.
There was huge goldfish in the little pond there. Jack and Ella were splashing the water and pretending to catch the fish.
