The Zoo.

Yesterday we headed up to the Portland zoo, where we met up with my Birch and Sara and family. The kids were so excited to see their cousins. Malia is somewhat infatuated with Alex and loves to follow him around, so she was especially excited. They were so excited that they ran from exhibit to exhibit and us parents struggled to keep up with them. By the end we were hungry, sweaty and happy. It was a great trip. Cole's favorite thing was the penguins, Malia's was the hippo and Jacob's was the black bear. Claire did great despite not getting a nap until 3:00. In the picture below, I told the kids to "Look scared". This is jacob's attempt to look scared. It looks more like he just ran a 5k.
All the cousins...(except Claire and Chloe)

Looks like fun. We took the kids to the zoo last summer and I can guarantee you the parents were way more tired than the kiddos! (Mostly because we got one of those wagons and ended up pulling them around the entire time!)

Looks like fun. I think it is time for a trip to the Zoo it has been 2 years since we have been!

Glad you had fun! We are going to check out the zoo and the dinosaur exhibit when we are on vacation next month. Tuesdays are $2.00 days (I'm assuming the dinosaur thing is extra, as is the trains and stuff) but we are hoping Koben has a great time. Chloe thinks the zoo is for "babies" and is more excited about the trip to Omsi we will also be making. Jeesh, just can't make a nine year old happy.

We had a great time, too! Thanks for meeting us up there. Having the cousins get together is always a great thing.
