The Hogle Zoo

Last Saturday we headed up to Salt Lake to go to the Zoo with our good friends, The Fisher’s.  They brought some fun friends and family with them too, and it was a lovely event.  All week I was telling Steven we were going to the zoo on Saturday, and he kept saying “I don’t wanna go to the zoo!”  Then I told him mommy, daddy, and Lillie were going to the zoo, and he replied “I wanna stay in the car.”  Much to his dismay, we made him go to the zoo anyway.  And yet, he absolutely LOVED it!  We weren’t surprised that he kept begging to go back to the zoo while we were driving home.

I told everyone to act like animals.  This may be one of the only pictures I have of Todd actually smiling normally……
