Lions and Tigers and Bears...Oh My!

I finally got to take Colton to the zoo for the first time. I was a little worried because he is teething and is the fussiest he has ever been but of course he was great as usual! (Yes i realize I'm lucky!) We went with Grandpa Vance and Grandma Margie. I'm not sure who enjoyed it more Colton or Grandpa. I think we went at the perfect time, Sunday morning before it got hot and before the crowds showed up! We saw the whole zoo in two and half hours and left as it started getting crowded. Colton was very intrigued by all the big animals (especially the elephants) and loved to mimic the Monkeys! I didn't get a ton of pictures but here are the best ones I got.

I tried to get him to stand still by himself but he kept walking away! Oh well...maybe next year!

All pooped out...

I am so grateful to share these experiences with Colton and want to take advantage of every day I have with him because you just never know if that could be taken away from you. I keep hearing tragic stories and one has hit a little closer to home than normal. As I have sat and thought about it it has made me realize how lucky I am to have such a wonderful child and great family.
