sunday @ the zoo

I'm not sure what the weather looks like across the country, but we had an absolutely beautiful weekend. It was mid 70s on Saturday and up to 79 degrees on Sunday. We're still in March, people! But as if we needed to be reminded, we're in for a colder week with a forecast of snow. Shorts one day, coat and gloves the next. Welcome to Colorado!

To enjoy the weekend, the weather, and the fact that Dani and Jake are on spring break, we decided to go to the zoo Sunday. It had been a long time since our last visit and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Of course, I had camera in hand the whole time and got a few good pics. With the sun so bright, the deep shadows ruined many great photo ops, but I was able to get a few decent ones. You may view all the decent ones here on my Flickr.

The Denver Zoo is my absolute favorite!!! I think I miss that the most. We would go 3 or 4 times a summer. I have pictures of all our kids by that polar bear where you can watch them swimming under water. It was so fun to see how much bigger the kids got each year! Great pictures!! It's so great that your kids will still do that stuff with you :)

Great shots! Which zoo did you go to? Probably not Cheyenne Mountain. That would be a bit of a drive just to go to a zoo.
