elephants, rhinos and bauer?!

this week at the zoo there has been a very important new discovery. i believe the genus species name is baueris eatemupus. look at its fierce snarl...scaaaarrrryy! :)

and here are a herd of wild children. from left to right 3, 4, 1, 2. yep...we are busy around here folks.

and FINALLY there was an appearance by the very elusive rhino. seriously, we go to the zoo OFTEN and this is the first time they have been out.

bauer was so excited..."look mom, do you see it?"

"of course you do!"

i cannot believe how fast he is learning new things...

and what a fashionista little miss vivian has become! check out her shades and knee socks.

and of course, doesn't every good trip end with a carousel ride*?!

*please note the very rare appearance by that strange woman, i think her name is mom, on the merry go round...that is usually a daddy ride.

Adorable scary new animal. Adorable fashionista. And adorable mom, too! (I swear you look just like the Somer I visited in 1987... and I mean that in the best possible way - you haven't aged a bit, sister!)

But confused Yankee cousin is pondering how you could have pants and knee socks pictured here... shouldn't it still be 98 degrees there? Luke wore pants (instead of shorts) to school for the FIRST time today! What's going on here? =)
