well, you were wrong.
we're pretty much living in a mini-africa.
the truth is i took scotty on his very
first zoo outing today. our friend christia and her sons julian & gabriel took us as their free friends on their seasons pass. unfortunately james had to go to school today, but we tried to have as much fun as we could without him. we saw all sorts of animals! there were giraffes,
and scott's favorite animal was the wallaby (that you can see there in the grass behind him)
probably the most annoying and equally funny part of our zoo experience was the fly that absolutely would not leave scott alone. it kept landing on the poor kids nose! it was so cute though, that i just had to get a picture.
this is christia and julian
as you can tell, scott was having a rip-roarin time.
post-zoo piling in the car. we had three happy (and tired) campers.
when we got home i decided i needed to take a picture of scott's whole outfit. he is sporting his brand new Iowa Hawkeyes outfit and his cute Van's shoes that one of grandy's friends gave him. and of course he's laying on the very cute blanket that his aunts steph and kim made him. he's just such a loved and happy little boy.
oh, and since all the other pictures were of animals more often found in africa, i decided i needed to bring it all home and get a picture of me milking a good ol' iowan cow. okay, the cow is fake, but the feeling is the same.
