* This post was ready several days ago, but somehow I forgot to post it, and since then we haven't had internet access*
We decided sort of last minute Monday morning to pack up and head to the zoo! It was chilly, but fun, and totally worth it!
We got to the penguin exhibit at feeding time!
Staying warm in my sock monkey hat =)
Inside the aviary
Next, butterfly house... The kids loved that the butterflies were just flying around us, freely.

Love this one
In the underwater tunnel below the polar bear/seal exhibits
The kids trying make handprints on the frozen wall
I left my hand there for a pretty long time, and mine hardly showed up!
Keenan had a great time, making snowballs and throwing them at all of us =)
Haha. Caption pending on this one, suggestions welcome. =)
It's nice to have a buddy to scratch those spots you just can't reach =)
Giraffe in the snow just seemed weird
Moriah "helping" Daddy pull the wagon
The meerkats cracked me up, sitting like this!
And... my Favorite...

This evening, we met up with Grandma Dooley, Aunt Patti, Angela and Joe for dinner...
