We took a little weekend getaway to Salt Lake Friday and Saturday. We needed some family time. I always notice such a big difference in all of our attitudes towards each other when we take time for all of us. It was short but sweet!
It rained on us the whole time at the zoo. It was actually really nice. It was a constant sprinkle so we didn't get drenched and we all had umbrellas. It kept the crowds away and the temperature perfect. It was our best trip to the zoo yet!
I love this picture. It makes it look like the giraffe was super close.
Kaden got his finger pinched in his umbrella and it ruined the rest of the trip for him. So when they went on the carousel he didn't want to pick an animal. You can see him sitting on the bench. Ellie had a blast though!
This picture made me laugh! If you've been to Hogle Zoo you know that this big wooden elephant makes random noises through it's trunk. Ellie was sneaking up to it and it blasted her right in the face. I caught the picture at the right second. Pretty funny.
I call this little guy my happy Kam-per. He's so cheerful.
Saturday we went shopping, to the planetarium and then took the kids to Shrek Forever After. Cute movie. Fun weekend. Over too soon.
