The Zoo

 Yesterday we drove to Salt Lake and we took the kids to the Hogle Zoo.
We love coming to the zoo when we are in Utah. It is small enough that you can see all of the animals before the kids get too cranky.
The last time we visited Zack was just 5 weeks old!
He really enjoyed seeing all of the animals.
 The elephants are a favorite of mine. Especially when there is a baby elephant :)
 The kids got to ride the carousel.
 Everyone picked out their very favorite animal to ride on.
 The monkeys were Zackary's favorite. Max and Mia were pretty impressed with the gorillas. They posed with this statue after we had visited them.
 Each of the kids had their own map. They had a great time trying to figure out where we were and where we were going.
Zoey fell asleep and she and I enjoyed some quiet time while everyone else watched the bird show.
After leaving the zoo I had wanted to enjoy a nice lunch somewhere in Salt Lake, but the kids were starving and not cooperating, so we went through a drive through and got them all corn dogs and root beer. They were thrilled.
Maybe when they are a little older they will be a little bit more gourmet!

We had a great time. The kids talked about the animals for the rest of the day.
