Fall Family Day....

It's almost November and the weather here has been amazing.  We know that these gorgeous weekends are almost numbered, so we had to take advantage of the weather this weekend and take a trip to the zoo.  We got there about 30 minutes after opening.  I expected the place to be packed but shockingly it wasn't too crowded.  We were able to walk right up to all the attractions and walk directly onto all the rides. 

Stopping for some photo ops....

We were actually able to ride the skyline for the first time.  It was an experience.  There was actually an orangutan entertaining us the entire time.  He basically followed us around during our ride.  The girls loved it!

We walked right on to the roller coaster.  Due to lack of people, the attendants let us ride it twice in a row.

We also fed the birds.  Addison was a little hesitant at first but warmed up to it.  I love that I was able to capture her facial expression in the above photo.  The girls are actually holding a stick that has bird food on the end.  The birds fly right up to you to eat.

Alexis was all about this.  She could have stayed in the bird house all day.

Notice the photo bomb?

Of course, no trip would be complete without a ride on the carousel.  Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo of Addison since she was with her Dad on the other side of the ride.

Alexis wanted to feed the birds again so we did.

After the zoo, we decided to go to the Old Spaghetti Factory for a late lunch.  The girls were happy that we got to sit in the trolley again.  I was shocked that we were able to walk right in with zero wait.

And we ended the amazing day with a little work in the yard.  Well, I worked the girls played.  :-)
