What a zoo!

I love going to the Animal Haven Zoo which is near our cabin in Wisconsin. It's the best zoo I've ever been to. There are a wide variety of animals and the animals are so close it's scary... but safe :). We get to chat with the owners and learn more about the animals and what it's like to run a zoo. We've made it a tradition to go every time we're at the cabin and it's something I look forward to doing each time.

Do you see the big lion in the background?

Emmett loved feeding the animals.

The donkey greeted us in friendly donkey fashion, "hee haws" and loud brays! It startled us at first, but then we realized the donkey were quite friendly.

We spent the evening at my Grandma and Grandpa's house. The kids entertained everyone.

One funny thing I didn't get a picture of was Emmett playing with my grandpa's lifting recliner. He climbed up on the recliner and grabbed the remote and the chair started raising and tipping forward. Emmett was a bit nervous, his eyes getting bigger and bigger, but kept pushing the button. He then looked over at us and realized we were all watching him. He got a big grin on his face and said, "a bideo dame chair!" (translation: "a video game chair!")

Eisley picked up the lace and put it over her head.

The whole gang...
