San Diego Zoo

San Diego is the best in October!
It's kids get into the park free month.
That's right, the zoo, the wild animal park, sea world, the whole works--

We went to the zoo with these fun ladies.
Our husbands both work for the fire department and we really did try to pick a day that the guys could come with us but the stars just couldn't align.
The days they were both off of work, one was working over time or in a class or had an appointment.
So, we went without them.
Sorry guys, next time.

After we saw the polar bear
We spent a lot of time in the arctic snow caves playing.
(i love andies head-shes trying to get over to the big kids)

They popped up  and had a blast

We litearlly had to pull them away from this area so we could go see more animals.

 It was so fun to watch Miles and Cora discover things.
They loved watching the rattle snake...
..the giraffes...

...the orangutan...
(coras hair looks like the orangutan) 

Andie was a trooper in the heat in her stroller 

But she sure LOVED getting out to see everything!


The funnies of the day-
For the pictures that just make my heart happy:

Andie and I are looking at the gorillas and Miles is hanging there like one. 
(I seriously had no clue this was happening) 

The attempt for a cute picture of the kids on the lion.

and the awkward family pose on the Lion.

These all just make me laugh out loud!!

It was such a fun day.
We love our friends and are grateful for them.
It's sometimes hard to be a firemans wife and it's so nice to have someone who gets it.

Spoiled Kids

These babies are so spoiled with how much we get to go to Disneyland. 
As they both get older, it gets more fun to watch them there.
It's awesome.

Miles and Andie were pretty excited to see some of our favorites...
I took this picture and about fell over.
 I sent a text to Romney with this daring mickey picture and he said there was NO WAY we could ever get a lucky shot like that again....


These two know what to do.

I mean, look at Miles just resting that arm on McQueens hood like he's a pro.
A natural, I tell ya.

After we see/saw the characters we head over to fantasyland and start going on all the rides.
Dumbo brings joy to all ages.

Andie loves the carousal.
She tries to "giddy up and go" super hard and usually whacks her forehead on the pole.
It's hilarious and sad at the same time.

These two have been friends since they were newborns.
Their big brothers are usually on big boy rides leaving them behind to hang out together and apparently share secrets.
oh, I just love them.

Sometimes we go with friends and sometimes we go alone.
As much as going with friends is fun, I love going with just us too.
It is good for us to go as a family and create those memories.
It's the alone time with them that I will miss one day.

I honestly do not know what is going on here but it makes me laugh.
But this sums up a usual day at the park-
Andie in the stroller and Miles in her space.
And yet they both think its fantastic.
They're a good pair.
Thank you Disneyland for making my babies happy and creating memories for us.
See ya next week.
