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)
