One of the best places to take kids is the zoo, they get to run around look at animals and in about 3 hours are totally ready for a nap. On Monday David, Melissa, and I decided to take Megan and Katelyn to the Los Angeles Zoo. When I asked Kate what animal she wanted to see first, her answer was the zebras. We mostly just got to see the zebras butts because they were more interested in eating then entertaining two 2 year old's.

The giraffes were next on our must see list!

I think these animals make David feel short! :)

One of the most beautiful animals we got to see was the tigers...and we were in luck because a few of them decided to walk around and show themselves off.
I asked Megan if she liked the tigers...and the only thing she said to me was "Pooh-pooh," David and I took one look at each other and started to laugh. You see, one of Megan's favorite books is Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans and a line in the book is as follows. To the tiger in the zoo Madeline just said, "Pooh-pooh,"

I love it when my very smart two year old quotes lines out of books! Is Shakespeare next? just joking!!
All in all we had a really nice day strolling through the zoo and the weather was perfect!
