The Bronx Zoo

Today we went with Roz's friend Deanna and her kids to the Bronx Zoo. It was a lot of fun, but soooo tiring!!! What a huge zoo and soooo much walking for little kids!
Well we started off by going on the carousel they have there. It was pretty cute because it was all a bunch of different insects that you sat on!
Here the kids are scouting out which bugs they want!

Finally riding after waiting like 20 minutes!

The Zoo had a pretty cool butterfly exhibit that we went into. There were butterflies everywhere and it even had some cocoons that you could see! The kids loved it and really wanted the butterflies to land on them!

So many fun animals to see!!!

Looking at the monkeys!

All the kids!

Still looking at the monkeys!

The younger two were SO ready to go home and so we ditched everyone and went and got on a tram that shows you a lot of cool animals. They really liked it, but were still tired and still wanted to go home!

Christina spent a lot of the tram laying on my knee... I KNOW YOU WANT TO GO HOME, PLEASE DON'T START CRYING YET!!!

Some more animals we saw!

Grammy, Grampy!!! HERE WE COME!

This weekend I decided I wanted to go with the family I work for up to just outside of Boston to visit their grandparents! Here are some pictures of what we did!
It's about a 3 hour drive and here's Connor passing the time!

Weirdly enough Christina would not let me take these blueberries from here for a LONG time in the ride! She just held them on her lap as she watched movies! Weird huh?

Here's Caroline making a silly face as she lounges on the back seats! Why does she have to be sooooo uncomfortable for sooooo long?! Life is hard!

While we were there Roz and Caroline decided they needed to go Back to School shopping so we went to a local mall. I got tired of the store they were shopping in so I stole Connor and went to the one across to another store and we tried on sunglasses! Here are our cool pictures!

Then we went back and Caroline was trying on clothes forever and so we took silly pictures with just regular glasses! We're so funny!

Haha we went Grocery Shopping and look what Roz got to push around!

Before we even left for Boston I looked up where the Boston Temple was in regards to where we were going and if I should even ask if we could go see it. Well luckily it was only a tiny bit out of the way so we went and saw it on our drive home. It's sooo beautiful!

I was telling Roz about the Manti temple in Utah and how I remember as a child rolling down the hills, so Connor and Christina decided that was a very good idea and started rolling around on the grass! So cute!

When we told the kids that we were stopping at the temple they started to complain because they just wanted to get home, I told them that I had gone and met their Grammy and Grampy so they could go do something for me! They didn't care! But they loved it! Roz loved all the flowers all around it and told us the names and commented on a lot of them. Connor called it a castle! We had fun! Yay for short side-trips!
