Our visit to the Jacksonville zoo.

On Wednesday we took our crew to the Jacksonville zoo.

Brittany and Ella.

Sam loved the zoo map.

Feeding Naomi the giraffe was a highlight.  
Each boy got a small leafy branch.

Elijah made her work for his branch. 
Her loooong purple tongue reached through the fence and pulled all the leaves off then ate the branch too. Elijah was surprised that she ate the twig as well.

Sam put down his map long enough to feed the giraffes too. =)

Sherri and Sam watching the elephants.

It was a beautiful zoo. Many trees, flowers and butterflies.

A lot of the walk ways were shaded by trees.

I love these flowers so much they decorated on our wedding cake.

After lunch we spent some time at the splash pad. So fun. The boys loved it.

Look at Sam just sitting there contemplating life.

The only reason Elijah is sitting so nicely trying to hold the other two close is that he knew after this picture we were going to get snow cones!

Sherri took this great one of Ethan enjoying his mango shaved ice.

Watching the penguins. 
There was a really neat place you could see them swimming under the water.

Our kiddos!
Ten minuets later they were all sound asleep.

See? I told you!
