It's a Zoo Life

We've been enjoying the creativity of asynchronous days this year, and this time, it was a trip to a petting zoo that's so crazy, it's even been on a TLC TV show! It's the most hands-on zoo we've ever gone too, and we had so much fun making memories with our friends! It was kind of crazy too, because it was out first outdoor outing with the mask mandate lifted! Some of us were more comfortable with it than others, but we'll all get there!

They have several kangaroos and wallabies, including some new babies that like to be held and bottle fed!

The lemurs LOVED climbing from shoulder to shoulder!

Ben was shocked to find out we could go IN and pet the wolf pups, and climb around their cave!

We completely forgot what this little guy was called, but he LOVED snuggling with Abby!


We visited with a hungry mama pig before chasing after her piglets...

Emily was the first to catch one of those fast little piggies!

The two week old baby bunnies were SO tiny!

Apparently, Emily LOVES chickens! Who knew?!?!?!?

Before heading home after this hot day of fun, we passed the sloth who was done hanging off the jungle gym and decided to go in for some shade too...

What an awesome day with so many fun memories!

Prom Time!

It was prom weekend here, and Abby had an amazing time with her friends! When did we get old enough for this?!?!?!?! My awesome assistant an...
