Indiana Bound

My grandfathers passing allowed Blake some time off of work and I wanted to go north as soon as we could.  We left Thursday and made the quick 6 1/2 hour drive.  It is an easy drive straight up 65 and change to another interstate in Louisville.  Not hard at all.  I drove up for 4 1/2 hours and Blake finished the rest up.  Bryce didn't sleep the whole way up.  Not at all!  We were flabbergasted, to say the least.  And that boy's mouth runs the entire way.  He is hilarious.  Steven is at the age where he puts on headphones and passes out.  Can't say I blame him. That's what I would do but I keep Blake company.  We were able to go to the Cincinnati Zoo on Friday and it is spectacular. 

The boys were up early ready to go.  They had no problem making themselves at home.  Bryce believes that he should live there too.

Erin stayed with us on Thursday night and got up to go to the zoo too.  Bryce was very happy about that!

He was a riot on the way over.  There are some smokestacks that is along this highway leading to Cincinnati and I remember it from as long as I can remember and now he will too!

I am not sure why Steven has that lovely look but he was just as excited to go.  Maybe this is teenager angst pic.

Me and my Sis

They had all sorts of things.  They also have an insect demonstration.  Bryce liked this guy.

We are now moving into acting like ants.  They learned the different types of ants and what they do.  Blake is a worker ant.

Here's Bryce the worker and Erin the Queen

Bryce loved this gorilla and so did Steven.  You could climb on it so that is always fun for boys.

The real guy.

There again...teenager face and Bryce saying cheese.

He had to put his head in the jaw of course!


Siegfried and Roy White Tiger

It was hot but there was almost no humidity.  So, for us Alabamians, we were in Heaven!  Here's Bryce getting some mist.

This is Bryce and his cougar(koo-grrr).   He loves to say that word and sounds hilarious when he does.
