zoo's who!?

"zoo's who!?" is not random. it's one of jillian's favorite books, so i thought it an appropriate title.

we had been wanting to take jillie to the zoo before it got to be unbearably hot, but every weekend has been filled to the max! we finally got a chance a couple weeks ago (yes, i'm late..these are all my re-cap posts).

and no, we did not go early enough to beat the heat!

we decided to go to the tyler zoo, because it's smaller, and at jillian's age, she really doesn't need any more than that!

neither kyle or i had been in forever, so we didn't remember exactly what it was like, so we were all pumped!

we decided to go on a sunday, because we didn't have an open saturday in forever, so in thinking this would be an all day affair, we skipped church and headed out that morning. took like 2 hours to see the whole zoo! and we were taking our time!

i'm not complaining, it's the perfect size when you have younger kids! we just now know that we can go to church, then lunch at mercados (yum), and still have time to see the zoo!

we had a lot of fun, and jillie, of course, loved it!

her favorite thing was the birds. they were squawking really loudly and she would just laugh and talk back. or just say "oh wow!"

her other favorite thing was the "petting zoo" which was just a bunch of goats.

she went around and touched every single one! and called them all puppies!

{this is her "i'm so excited i can't contain myself" look!}

{this was zoomed in way closer than expected, but i kinda like it!}

{when we got home, we headed to kyle's parents to swim and cool off. check out j's sweet goggles! she wore them for like an hour!}

it was a great family fun day and we will definitely be going back! just maybe when it's a little cooler.

we're trying to squeeze in extra "family fun days" before #2 gets here, to soak up these last few months we have with jillie girl.
