We're Going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo

Yesterday, Emma and I were able to head to Lansing for a "Girl's Day" with my mom and Grandma. We went out to lunch, took a trip to Potter Park Zoo and had some ice cream before we called it a day. Miss Emma is an animal fanatic so the zoo was the perfect place for her. As an added bonus, the zoo was free for the day (staff was sent home early due to the impending storms, but they held off for a bit which gave us plenty of time to walk around). The zoo was pretty empty, so Emma was able to run free and she loved it!

All ready to take on the zoo (the stroller and the sunglasses didn't last long :)

My "ferocious" little lion- don't let the cute face fool you!

Walking with Grandma

Checking out the all the meerkats.

Trying to get a close up of the animals. She wanted to pet and hug them all!

Watching the penguins with Grandma and Great Grandma. We all wanted to cool off with them!

Emma didn't really understand the idea of measuring her wing span.

Taking in the camels (and praying we don't get spit on :)

It was a very busy, fun day. We certainly don't get the opportunity enough. Thank you to my mom and grandma for taking the time to hang with your girls. We loved it and hope we can do it again soon! Now I just have to get that dumb song out of my head.... thanks mom!
