"Hold the Gate for the Blonde Family"

People are crazy. Are we the only "blonde family" in the world? I think not. However, for some reason, we attract a lot of attention when out in public. At the zoo tonight, someone literally yelled (loudly) "Hold the gate for the blonde family!!!" At least ten people commented on Brady and Cate's hair and two guys gave Scott a slap on the back and spoke our least favorite line "Can't deny them kids, can you?". Yuck.
Anyway, today was a great day. We started at 9am with a fun three hours at Splash City, lunch- naps- and dinner at home, then off to the zoo for a concert, and Ted Drewes to end the day. Fun!!

The boys loved the lazy river

Cate liked playing in the fountains the best

I think Bennett went down the "big slide" at least 20 times.
Not easy getting a drink out of this water spout

Ahhhh...much better

Petting the stingrays

Two monkeys and a gorilla
This furry creature crossed our path on our way to see the chimps. We don't know if he was on the loose or visiting from a nearby lake. Brady chased it off.
K. Massie in concert. Notice the crazy lady on the right. She "danced" to every song and had everyone's attention. Her moves were outrageous and she danced with a Japanese fan. It was the craziest thing I've ever seen!
Cate dancing to the music
We love Ted Drewes!!!
Catie Bug loves her ice cream!!

saw your comment on MckMama's blog and was stopping by. My twins are blond, too - my son especially! Both my husband I used to be blonds when we were little, too, but both have brown hair now. Everyone always asks where they get it, barely believing either of us were that blond! Our 3rd son was born with darker hair but as it fell out and is coming back in, its looking like it may go blond, too!
