First Trip to the Zoo

Grandma Nelson showing Jed and Leah the monkeys
Annabelle (3mos) and Levi (6 weeks)
We hope these two will be close cousins too.  So far, they like the same stuff: their mamas, milk, and soothies.
The babies' first trip to the zoo!
Feeding goats!!!  Coolest. Thing. Ever.

I've been dying to take Jed to the zoo all summer long!  This week I finally got my chance when the boys and I spent two fun-filled days with my in-laws.  We hit up the Tautphaus Park Zoo in Idaho Falls with Momma Nelson and my sister-in-law Amber and her two little girls.  It's a small zoo, but has everything important for entertaining a pair of toddlers.  Jed and Leah went crazy running and laughing to and from each exhibit!  They got a monkey to chase them from one side of the glass wall to the other and even got the chance to feed some goats and pet a yak.  I had fun just watching them.  It was the perfect way to spend a late summer afternoon.

And just one more picture...
Jed and Leah entranced with the train going around and around the track at Grandma's house.
These two are close cousins.  They love playing together and love antagonizing each other too.  Oh, the screaming!
