My mom bought our family a Zoo Membership for Hudson’s birthday per my request… I know, sounds kind of odd for a gift but the kid needs nothing…. and he hasn’t been to the zoo since he was 1. So, we decided to surprise Hudson with a trip to the zoo (Toledo) and Mother’s Day ended up working out best for everyone.
After a rough start to the day…. leaving an hour and a half later than planned, multiple stops to the restroom because Los Tres did a number on Porter’s stomach, Amelia crying because she needed to eat and a pit stop for Porter to puke up the scrambled eggs he had for breakfast… we were on our way and attempting to be in good spirits.
Of course the kids enjoyed the play areas just as much as the animals, maybe even more. We didn’t get to do the train ride in Africa as we ran out of time, but by then we were all exhausted. It was a good day, and the kids had a great time. It was a little crazy though, being a weekend, a holiday and Moms got free admission to the zoo! I’m looking forward to taking the boys– err kids– back this summer during the week and hopefully not running into so many crowds.
Hudson LOVED the carousel. His face was priceless.
This has got to be one of my favorite pictures of the boys. LOVE IT.
