Monkeying Around

On Saturday morning, after one of my three children locked my keys in the car, and after a friend took them to school for their 3 hours of make-up for the snow day so they wouldn't be late, and after Andrew and I waited for AAA to come and free my keys, and after Andrew and I had a wonderful breakfast together at the Waffle House, we headed to the zoo to celebrate Kylie's third birthday. Go here for Kristi's account of the day.

I have to admit that it wasn't only the animals I found interesting. I hate that this is blury, but I still had to post it. Don't you just wonder what goes through some parents' minds?


Like father like son, I suppose. I really wanted a shot from the front, but I wasn't that bold.

Zoo Group

Part of our group of 13.


It was really nice to see Alexander again.

Adam Zooo P


Caleb didn't have any trouble finding things to look at if the animals were out of his view.

Adam & Kylie

Laughing Abby

Triple As

It was give and take between Abby and the boys. In the first picture Abby was laughing because she was putting her hands over the viewfinder so Andrew couldn't see out. In the second picture, the boys were barking and you can tell by the look on Abby's face that she was NOT impressed.

Monkey Andrew

Andrew had to do a little monkeying around himself.

Happy Birthday Kylie! Thanks for letting us share in your special day.

What a day it was. Beautiful weather (maybe a little warm - 82),
loving family, excited children, nice two mile walk through the zoo.
Your pictures are wonderful, Tricia. You captured some memorable moments.
Love, Saundra

It looks like a good time was had by all. Maybe I'm still a kid at heart, but I love the zoo. Kylie had a good birthday! ( Mom's birthday was today, she would have been 91.) Love, Grandma

I'm so glad you guys joined us! It just wouldn't have been complete without the Triple As! Kylie has been talking about how fun it was that Abby was there ever since!
I love your photos, Adam's expression on that one with Kylie is so loving! And thanks for capturing my little girl's beauty in the last shot!

Love the image of Kylie. Some of your best work to date. You really settled in on that image.
