Day at the Zoo

Tuesday we met Rebecca, RJ and Rylee at the zoo. They have a membership so we got in free which is always great! My mom and Rebecca's mom came along to help. Having the extra hands is always good! Izabel and RJ had a great time looking at all the animals. Izabel told us what they said as we pointed them all out and she would look at the picture and then point to the animal at each exhibit. Then we would walk to the next thing and Izabel and RJ would hold hands while we walked. It was too cute!!! She'll be endlessly teased by us when she is older about her "first boyfriend" but right now it is adorable. We had snack/lunch and fed the goats in the petting zoo and then headed home for nap time. Of course Izabel fell asleep before we hit the interstate but she ended up laying down for a little while at home too. I'm trying so hard to hold on the afternoon nap! She still needs some sleep during the day but I really need it too so hopefully she'll keep napping. It seems like it gets shorter and shorter and that's if I can get her to nap at all. Tanner on the other hand naps great it's just sleeping at night in his crib he has a problem with! He enjoyed the zoo today by snoozing in the stroller almost the whole time. He was awake long enough to eat and I think that was it! We all had a great time. We love our play dates and it's so nice for both of my kids to have other kids to play with!

She wasn't afraid to stick her hand in there!
Sleeping lions still say "ahhhhhh"
