Weekend fun

Saturday was a beautiful warm day, so we decided to take Ashton to the zoo. After lunch we loaded up the car and headed out. It was very crowded, but we were lucky to find a parking spot quickly and headed inside to see the animals. Ashton is definitely an animal lover, and gets so excited when he is around them.

There were lots of ducks wondering around and Ashton loved watching them. At one point one of the monkeys climbed to the top of a tree and laid down for a rest. Ashton couldn't stop laughing at him, it was so funny.

Ashton loves bears, and making bear noises. The last time we were at the zoo the polar bears were walking around really close to the window that Ashton was looking through. He loved it. This time he couldn't get enough of the brown bears.
This was one of our last stops, the giraffes. We decided that ice cream sounded good, but we didn't want to wait in line at the zoo. We headed downtown to the 16th street mall which is a whole street blocked off with shops and restaurants. After walking around for a while we hit up the ice cream shop and had a good treat. Ashton loves ice cream so of course he was in heaven. We are looking forward to many more warm days to come, and fun family outings.

I love that he is too busy looking at all the animals to pay the camera any attention! :) Zoos are so much fun!

I'm glad your weather is warming up. I'm headed to Illinois to see my sister before her mission and am wondering what on earth to pack for Ella. It's not quite sundress weather there yet. Stop at Target when we land?
