at the zoo with 14 kids

Friday we took a little "family zoo trip." There were 14 kids in all (although 3 of them were old enough to really help out with the little ones). I had a few field trip flashbacks, but it was much more fun and much less stressful :) All of the kids were great! We stayed for a picnic lunch and then headed back home for our swimming lessons. I will definitely rethink the double stroller next time we go. I was worn out!

Looking at the clouded leopard--my favorite

the three babies--Ty, Lexi, and Mamie

Mamie LOVED the goats. For some reason, she has always picked out the goats in her books--"goat" was one of the first animals she knew. I'm thinking most kids go for horses, cows, or pigs...I doubt "goat" is usually at the top of the favorites list for most kids.

Kind of makes you want to be a goat, doesn't it?

That looks like fun! Lots of kiddos, that is for sure. The pictures below from your visit home are really cute, too. What is it with tupperware and jars that babies love so much?

Looks like you have been having fun lately! I have been out of the blogging world for quite a while! Your girls are getting so big! I love the matching swimsuits!
