It's been so hot here all summer we haven't really been able to do much outside. Angela does not tolerate the heat well and uses a cooling vest once it hits 80*, but we've been in the high 90's to over 100 and her cooling vest doesn't do any good at that point. But a couple weeks ago the temperatures finally started to drop into normal ranges! The Minnesota Zoo is just minutes from our house so that's where we headed. It's the first time we've been there this summer.
Because the zoo is closely and we have a membership, we only visited parts of it. Apparently all the pictures I took, except for the camel, were in the farm. LOL Going to the zoo is a great way to introduce the boys not only to new animals they'd never heard of before, but also to learn the ASL signs for them too.
Angela was the only one to ride the camel. We didn't even bother to ask Axel knowing he'd be afraid of it and Asher...well...I don't trust him to stay on and I didn't want to ride. LOL
It wasn't easy to get Axel up on the tractor. He really wanted to, but he is petrified of having his feet get off the ground even a few inches. He'll climb up the climber in our back yard now, but things that are unfamiliar? UGH! Takes A LOT of coaxing!
KIDS IN THE COOP!
