Summer Fun Update

Visiting a zoo is on our summer bucket list so I decided that we should load up and head to the Memphis Zoo. This was actually our second zoo trip of the summer because we went to the Indianapolis zoo two weeks ago when we went to visit our friends. 

I hadn't been to the Memphis zoo since I was a little girl so I didn't really know much about it. I think that I get as excited as the kids. I love me a zoo! It's a big place and it was hot but we still had a really good time. I didn't take many pictures but here a few. 

They had an awesome giraffe feeding exhibit so we had to do it! $5.00 to get licked by a giraffe, why not? :)

The kids, as well as GeeBee, loved it!

Even though it was 90 degrees and stinky, Parker and I decided to take a ride on Henry the camel. I mean, when else could you ride a camel. I was actually surprised that Parker got on. It was pretty tall and a little scary but he seemed to like it!

He's growing up before my very eyes. 

This boy LOVES his passy. 

We haven't been able to spend much time with our best buddy Edward due to crazy summer schedules but we are hoping that will change soon. 

 We went to the Marriott splash pad with a few friends a few weeks ago. We had never been. I think it opened when we were in Indiana. Anyway... The kids weren't fans. 

Preston was literally blown over by the cannon force water spray and Parker said it was too crowded. I think we will stick to the one in Muscle Shoals. 

Anytime I get out my camera or my phone, this is what Preston does. He says cheeeeese!!! really load and gives me the biggest smile. I think it's precious! 

We are having a fun summer so far and I hope that you are too!

What a neat experience to have ridden a camel! Sure don't get to do that everyday! And Parker is looking soooo grown up. It's hard to believe our boys are getting so big!
