Zoo Day


I could tell the second that Ty woke up Friday morning.

He made a bigger ruckus getting out of the bed than he does on Christmas Morning.

He fumbled, stumbled, and all but fell out of the bed and then charged into the bathroom where I was getting ready and declared, "It's Zoo Day, Mama!"

I excitedly responded, "It is!!" and he took off in the living room excitedly shouting/singing, "It's zoo day!  Happy Birthday Zoo Day!"

Needless to say, Friday was zoo day.

Jason and I went to the Little Rock Zoo with Ty's Pre-K class (about 23 little kiddos), their parents and siblings, and his two sweet and wonderful teachers.

It was a perfect day of smiles and wonderment and beautiful weather.

And of course pictures.
