The Friday night before school started, we headed up to Colorado Springs, splurged and stayed the night in a hotel and went to the zoo the next morning.
start our morning at the zoo off, we stopped by the giraffes and we
were able to feed them. It was an amazing experience and I think a
favorite of the kids and Brandon. Lucy enjoyed watching the giraffes
from a distance.
The monkeys were pretty active when we saw them at the zoo. We spent a lot of time watching them.
Ben was thrilled when it was finally his turn to ride in the front of the train.
Lucy and Emmy loved seeing the hippos!
finish the night, before we headed home, we stopped at Cici's Pizza for
dinner. It was such a great day and a fun way to end our crazy and busy
summer by having some special time as a family.
