Yesterday we went to the zoo with Lauren
It turned out to be a pretty nice, low key day. 
We have a zoo pass, so we will totally be going more on the weekdays vs. the weekends now. 
I won't miss that craziness!

looking for the bears:

checking out the big cat:
(I'm so bad about catching the actual names of the animals)

he didn't want to pause for a picture:

running through the bridge:

the bald eagle:

'mom I don't want to stand in this thing':

just to compare...this was last August:
(stop growing!)

I love this one:

checking out the fish:

and the sleeping duck:

da bears:

headin out to mow the fields:

Going to the zoo with a toddler is funny. He found the flashing light on the smoke detector at the top of the barn and kept watching it. He also was way more interested in all the kids around him than the animals themselves.

He really enjoyed kicking this little red gate because it made a big sound with his boot.
Silly boy.

giddy up:

Lolo and little bubs:
(he loves her)

checking out the lazy polar bear:

we could take 'em:

we saw the hippos!

one of these fish had only one eye. 
Bennett didn't seem to care, but Lauren and I were weirded out.

Afterwards, he was throughly pooped.
He fell asleep on the 5 minute drive home.
It's a rough life.

    Fun! I bet the zoo is so much more enjoyable on a weekday.
