1. We went to the LA Zoo on Sunday. It's been awhile. The last time we were here we looked like this. (March 2008).2. Now we look like this.3. We got there at 3pm & they start putting away the big animals at 4pm so our 1st hour there was a mad rush to see the gorillas, lions, tigers & last but not least the giraffes.4. Johnnie was a mad man & was constantly running ahead of us to get to the next animal, so again my camera was too slow to get him.
5. Luckily the "aunties" came along for the day because an extra pair of hands are always helpful. Kayci & Christian were in charge of the map & kept us on track. 6. Auntie Kim kept Joey happy for the day which wasn't very easy since he was feeling a little under the weather. 7. Joey was happy to see the zoo from this vantage point & it was hard to tell if daddy enjoyed it or not. 8. I really wanted a pic with Jimmy on his 1st trip to the zoo so I gave him a little pep talk.9. He was more interested in my earrings at first.10. And then yay! he smiled for the camera.
