If you live (or have previously lived) in Utah, you know how fickle spring weather can be. Massive snowstorms in April, 40 degree weather and way too much rain in May. You know - sucky weather. So when we finally have nice days (sunny and 70 degrees), we have to take advantage of them. Zoo, anyone?
Justin had to work that day, so I went with my OTHER family, aka Ashlee and the babies. And we let her husband tag along with us, since we're nice like that.
Aren't these girls so cute?
The answer is yes. Yes, they are.
We saw the adorable new baby elephant, Zuri. Shortly after this next picture was taken, little baby Zuri walked behind the mother and stood directly under her tail. The mother then so lovingly dropped some mother-load-elephant-sized turds on her daughter's head. Kennedy was quite grossed out. Baby elephant didn't seem to mind. But I assured Kennedy I would never do that to her.
We tried to get rid of that disturbing image by taking cute pictures.
The animals were quite playful, that day. It took everything I had to resist the urge to jump over the fence and go cuddle with this giant kitty-cat.
Here's the fam:
And one last picture of Ivy dancing, just because I love these girls.
