Not even a week after Eddie and Lydia arrived in the States we attempted our first family outing to the zoo. Eddie and Lydia had seen many animals in the wild, but never so many and so close without being in danger. The kids' joy was so wonderful to share! A great family memory to treasure!

Mommy and her girls
I think Daddy's in trouble with these two :)
Not so sure about all that he sees
My handsome fellas!
G could stare at the "tar pit" for hours if I and the rest of the family let him
Exploring a statue of an American lion through hands-on interaction
A lion, a lion!!!
The cause of the excitement
Needless to say, I believe our zoo membership is well worth its cost -- we've already been back 6 times and summer break hasn't even begun!
