A Perfect Day!


This Saturday was the most perfect day!  The weather couldn’t have been better and we took full advantage.  We were in Sheridan visiting my parents so we headed to Little Rock to spend the day.  There is a nice park right beside the Zoo so we spent a little time snacking (what’s better than a Chick-Fil-A picnic) and playing and then headed to the Zoo.IMG_8165

I guess everyone had the same idea we did because there was a big crowd.  I love the zoo, we visit the Memphis Zoo more than the LR Zoo, but I grew up going to the LR Zoo so it was nice to go back.  My Nana met us there and we made it a family event.              IMG_8189

This was one of our last stops.  There were so many people gathered around this exhibit.   You can see them in the bottom picture.  One of the monkeys had a baby and the other monkeys were chasing them and they were all making a lot of noise.  I grabbed Sam to pick him up so he could see them and he dropped his sippy cup over the edge.  One of the monkeys ran right over to it, picked it up, unscrewed the lid, and drank it.  Of course Sam was upset he lost his cup.  Smart monkey!IMG_8219


Wiped out!

This was such a wonderful day and I loved every second of it!  I love spending the day with my kids!
