Trip to the Zoo with Gray & Ivy

We had a beautiful day for the Zoo. It was warm and just enough wind to cool you down. Gray and Ivy loved climbing on the fence.
To prove we were really at the Zoo, here is a friend I met there. Mr. Ape. He was quite rude and wouldn't look at me. I think he was being a tease.
Gray climbed into this log that goes to the window by the apes. He met a beautiful little girl and you can see in Gray's eyes that he thought she was really cute!
"Lou Lou" as we have nicknamed little miss Ivy, thought climbing on the fence was the best part about going to the Zoo. She wore her squeaker shoes and everyone was asking about them. We always knew where she was by the sound of her shoes.
I love this picture of Gray with the Flamingo's.
Gray with the huge aquarium of fish. He was very happy to be at the zoo, but a little disappointed at not being able to see the sea lions. Their exhibit was being cleaned and spruced up, so it was closed.
Gray sitting on the baby hippo and Ivy kissing the big hippo. Another fun day in Chicago with Steph and the kids. I love spending my days off like this.

what a great way to spend the day off! Kuddos to you Mimi, for grabbing your moments! Gray is looking older everyday and Ivy is looking less like a baby :( it goes by so fast and thankfully you are grabbing it as it is!

I love this post. So cute and fun and humorous although I'm sorry that ape was rude to you.
There's nothing like a trip to the zoo with the grandkids, is there?
So...I'm thinking you got lots of exercise points for that too, right?
