Lions and tigers and bears, Oh My!

THis past week, we went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. It was our first time there as a family. I went while I was pregnant with Olivia and it was fun but hard for me to walk that far and in the mountain no less. But this time was much better. Carter did a good job of not running away (finally!) and Olivia was happy the whole two hours just being carried in the baby Bjorn. We didn't get to see everything because we were in a crunch for time, but all had fun and the weather was perfect for January.

The first exhibit that you come to when you enter the gate is the giraffes. That is my favorite part. They are so close you can literally pet them. They have these giraffe crackers that you can buy so Theo, being the good daddy that he is, bought some so Carter could feed the giraffes. I'm not sure Carter was quite on board with the experience but with a little help from daddy, had a blast feeding the giraffes and would laugh and squeal each time the giraffe at the cracker! These are the moments memories are made of for sure!

Wow that's cool! We are planning on taking a trip to the mountains when school is out. I want to take my family where my dad used to take me during the summer. We used to Canoe down Buffalo river and we went to Blanchard Caverns that was really cool. Maybe yall could join us? We could make it a whole family vacation ;)
