We woke up to thunderstorms and massive rainfalls this morning.....for some reason it seemed like the ideal conditions for a trip to the zoo. The rain had mostly stopped by the time we got there and lucky for us, there was hardly anyone else there. It took a lot of bribing to get Bennett to go and even more begging to get Carter to join us. The good meal afterwards (only if they were good little boys) sealed the deal. An entire family fun day....miracles do happen! Anything before noon is early for Cate

The kids love the stingrays/shark exhibit. Carter and Ben were afraid to touch the sharks, but Brady and Cate nearly fell into the water trying to pet everything that swam by :)

Listening to directions on how to feed the stingrays raw shrimp

The zookeeper lady kept talking to Scott about how fearless Cate was...he literally had to hold onto her legs to keep her from climbing into the water. I think fearless is a bad thing...wasn't the Crocodile Hunter killed by a stingray?!
These Somalia Wild Asses gave the kids a little sex ed lesson...it was like an orgy for a few minutes. (Carter of course snapped a few pics with his phone) When Brady was reading the sign to identify the animals he said (very slowly) So-mal-ee-uh... Wuh wuh w-eye-ld... Assholes. Still makes me laugh out loud when I think about it!!!!

This was a great trick Ben played on Carter. The ole "throw my brother into the grizzly bear pit".

After we left the zoo, we headed to Fitz's Rootbeer for lunch.
Our waitress thought it was funny that the "boys look exactly like their mom and the girl looks just like her dad". She must have commented on it a million times. The boys think it's because of our eye color.....boys/mom green...dad/Cate blue

Team Green Eyes

But Brady's eyes are more brown than green and we all know what creates brown eyes...it's no coincidence his initials are b.s. ;) And seriously, could he look any more like his father? That waitress was crazy!

No mistaking the color of these eyes! (love the ketchup smeared across her face)

Another adventure marked off the summer list!!
