I may have mentioned that we were gluttons this weekend... It really was completely unintentional! But what are you going to do when your married daughter calls and tells you that your only baby brother and his family are in Portland on their way home from vacation and they are going to the zoo tomorrow?
Who cares that you will be driving to Washington in the afternoon for a wedding? How many chances are you going to get to spend a morning at the zoo with your 5 year old nephew and your 3 year old niece?
So a surprise was in order. Dennis didn't know that we were in the valley... He was just calling to invite Monte and Hillary. He got way more than he bargained for! And we got to spend 3 grand hours at the zoo with our favorite little (and big) people.
It was amazing what we were able to see in just 3 hours! I've included the highlights including the birds of prey show and the feeding of the crocodiles. These are the best pictures I was able to get of the croc because it was so humid in the 'rain forest' the lens kept fogging up!
All too soon it was time to leave... but we were so glad that we took the time to play!
