Zoo day

We went to the Oakland zoo with Matt's whole family to celebrate Ellie's 2nd birthday. Nora loved all the animals (she's finally old enough to actually look at stuff now), but it was HOT... we were melting by the end. We need to go back another day when it's much cooler.

I love this first set of three pictures. The first animals we saw were tigers, and Nora thought it was just the coolest thing.

Nice, Matt.

Checking out the lemurs (or something... I don't remember exactly what was in there).

Matthew, Owen, and Emma (plus some of Emma and Matthew's friends) at the animal show.

At the show.

All the kids got to go on the stage to sing. Ellie in particular LOVED this. 

Owen got picked to be in the show, and got to hold his favorite animal - the elephant!

Petting a snake.

Not too sure about the petting zoo.

I think this was the first time I have ever actually seen the lions at the zoo. It was pretty cool.

Unfortunately, we did the large animals (giraffe, lion, elephants, zebra) last. They're Owen's favorites, but by that point we were so hot and just done that we barely spent any time there at all. We'll have to go back again so Nora can see them better.

Poor hot baby in the car on the way home.

This was about two minutes after we left... she couldn't even stay awake for her bottle. :)
