We went to the ZOO!

Yesterday we went to the Fresno Chaffee Zoo. This was our 3rd time going with Levi, but our first time taking Rian. 

Levi just had to wear these light up Disney's Cars Sandals my mom bought him.
Can we all say, "Not cute."  They are one pair of shoes I definitely wouldn't have wanted to buy him.  Yeah, that's right, even I have standards of fashionably acceptable clothing.  Those shoes are not on any one's list. ;)  He really loves them though, even wanted to wear them to bed last night my mom said.

My mom even came with us to the zoo. 

And we met one of my friends and her family there to walk the zoo together.

Levi had an awesome time. Apparently he is no longer as shy as he once was. He was pretty smitten with my friend's 4 year old twins. He wanted to hold their hands, even though they got pretty annoyed by his two year old self. :)  They were good sports though. 

Levi now calls them, "His girls."  And when we came home it was upgraded to "girlfriends."  None of us have ever used the word girlfriend with him, so I am not sure how he knows it.  I also don't think he really meant girlfriend, because he is now calling a plastic dinosaur his girlfriend too. Haha.

We saw a lot of the animals, and there were minimal meltdowns from Levi, so it was a pretty awesome trip.

Later that night I had to run to the grocery store and Levi came with me. This is what happens to a kid who wakes up early and runs wild at the zoo.
He fell asleep as soon as we got to the store, and stayed asleep even after we got home.  Unfortunately for us, he did wake up....and now we're currently watching another darn Disney movie.  Did I mention it's past 1 AM? 

Hope you all are having a wonderful Easter Sunday. Praying God will keep all of you safe today.
