The girls were very excited about the trip and they talked about it for days before we actually left. They were excited to go with Papa, Aunt Sara, and Alan. Sara and Alan volunteer at the zoo and can get us in free anytime. We love that but may look into a membership at some point.
Here are the girls as we waited to go inside:
We went and visited the orangutans first and the girls were able to see the baby and grandma right up close. Riley was screaming to go into the exhibit. She kept yelling, "side" "side" (inside). She was just in love with them.
Then we headed over to the splash pad to cool off a bit. The girls had so much fun running through the waterfalls and splashing around
Riley and Daddy
Addie and Daddy
Having fun together...
We then took a break to eat lunch. The girls were having so much fun laughing and cracking us up. They love to fake laugh and had all of us rolling. Their smiles were pricelss!!!
After lunch we headed over to see the camels. Riley was very excited so Jesse took her for a ride. She loved every second of it and didn't want to get off the camel when it was over
Then Sara took Addie for her turn. As soon as they placed her on the camel, she started crying. She was not having any of it but she managed to stay on for the quick minute ride.
It is funny to see how different the girls really are. Riley used to cry on rides and Addie screamed in delight, now that tables have turned and Riley is our little dare devil and Addie is more cautious. I bet you Addie is the big sister and wants to make sure everything is stable for both her and her sister.
We saw a few more animals and the heat started picking up so we headed home. The girls were exhausted and we saw a few little fits after we got home. I am going to post more about our terrible 2's in another post here soon. Terrible 2's times 2 has me a bit worried.
