Folsom Zoo Field Trip

We are still playing catch up with the pictures and the blog!
On Friday, May 21 (see...way behind) Tyler's class went to the Folsom Zoo for a field trip. It was nice to be able to spend some time with Tyler and his class. They were given a sheet of paper that had pictures of animals and they needed to find them in the zoo. I don't see how they were able to match the pictures up, though, with them running all over the place and barely looking at the animals. But, it does seem like they had fun.
Here is Tyler stopping for one half second to smile for the camera...
She was so excited to be a part of the Queen Bees field trip. She loves to hang out with the bigger kids.
Who let this bear out of the zoo?! It's a pretty cute cub.
I think this was in front of the bear cages and they were making their growly faces. Or maybe that's just Tyler's regular smile these days. Hard to know.After the jog through the zoo we had a few minutes to ride the steam engine. The kids all piled in the train (in the animal cage at first) and got ready for the train ride! It was probably the only time during the day that they sat still for more than two seconds. This is Tyler and his best friend Payton being silly.
The conductor is notorious for taking a picture of every family (with a camera) and explaining how to set the settings for the optimal picture. Of course his optimal settings didn't get rid of my love handles!
Hmm...I wonder if there's a little love connection here on Lucy's part? Is this something we have to get used to with her older brother bringing cute friends around?
After the train ride we had pizza with the rest of the class and played at the park. It was a really fun day! Field trips are fun for the parents too.
