We hadn't been to the Woodland Park Zoo since Kobes was about one. Yep, that means L had never been so we were long overdue for a visit. The weather cooperated and the sun was shining almost the whole time. Gotta love sunshine, especially on vacation.
First stop was the penguins as R has been studying them in school this year. He announced which ones were Chinstrap penguins very authoritatively as they swam past.

this guy was napping in a tree...
... his two friends were napping under these sacks, it was pretty funny.
I'd like to say the boys are learning about the animals here, but really they are spinning that thing like crazy and presumably, trying to break it. Sigh, boys.

Tried hard for a good sibling shot but it's hard when there are three of them.
Ahh, kids in a cage, sounds good at the end of the day.
After the kids got too crazy for the Zoo we left and went to the park just next door.
The ran around and played together so nicely while we sat for a bit.
And that was the day! More to come check back later.
