Zoo-a- riffic

Most if June has been filled with rain storms and had been a bit chilly. So the one good, dry day we decided to take the fam to the Hogle Zoo. I knew Ella was going to love it. She has a freak out when ever she sees ANY kind of animal. She just has to touch it and love it. Its pretty sweet.
She reacted just the way I thought she would. She screamed and screeched at each animal! When it was time to move on to the next animal she would scream, and kick until she saw the next one. She did this every time.It was a perfect day for the zoo. We had to get some kettle corn, that we all shared and it was gone in about 10 seconds. But really yummy. Each kid rode the carousal and wanted to do it again.When I asked the kids what their favorite part was, they all said the train. They have a train that goes around the entire zoo(sort of) But they love dit.

Later we went to Temple Square. I forgot my camera...oops. EVERY TIME I go there I am just as amazed by it. Its just so beautiful. And I think its so great for the kids to be there as well. We walked around the Joesph Smith memorial building and had dinner there. We had a great day. Everyone was tired when we got home. that must mean it was a success. ,My favorite part was watching Ella's reaction with every animal. She LOVES animals!! Aunt Jewel and Charlee came along with us. Glad they are here! I keep telling her, our June weather isn't normally this wet. She wants some good 'ol fashion Az heat!! It will come....sort of!!
