I just realized that I left out a whole day of our 09 Staycation Part ii. So, here it is plus some! The Montgomery Zoo:
It was H.O.T. but we all had fun, enjoyed the sun, the wildlife, and each other.

The train ride gives you an overview of the whole zoo. Smart people would take this at the beginning of the visit. This was our last stop. oh well, live and learn.

We all had to take a bathroom break before loading up. Taylor was wiped out and rested his eyes and legs while he waited on the rest of us.

AUSTRALIA! We enjoyed our visit to Australia! Taylor already knew a lot about the land down under from VBS this summer, so he was very excited to tell us all about it.

The boys in front of the River Otter exhibit.

Just on the other side of this African exhibit where Zebra and Giraffe graze, they have the cheetahs, also native to Africa, but dangerously close on the food chain... Could this be considered torture? The cheetah's walk the same path, pacing the fence line that separates them.

Overall we had a great time at the zoo. We got there right at lunch time, at lunch next to the Lions (they didn't mind, they were sleeping) and left at 5:00 when they closed.

Summer at the Lloyd's means grillin!! Yummy!

The boys had peanut butter for the first time. Here Carter is with is all over his face, headed to the tub!

Brayden showing his excitement over the peanut butter.

Tucker just leaned close to the table and started scooping. He didn't dare take his eyes of his peanut butter.

My sweet Brayden Bear.

We went to Rachel's 5th birthday party at the skating center. Taylor was a little hesitant at first, but then loved skating, although he never made it out to the rink. He was much more comfortable on the carpet.

Look what I picked up at the store:

What great pictures. This is a friendly reminder about tomorrow, it’s “What would your children say?” Wednesday. It would be wonderful to hear the silly and funny things your children say and do. I hope you will participate in the linky party.
