Happy Groundhog's Day!

We took advantage of the free day at the Peoria Zoo, and had an awesome time! The animals were quite active. The llamas, goats, ponies and zebu all followed us around begging for treats. The monkeys were eating their lunch out of paper bags - sometimes they would climb inside the bags to retrieve the morsels from the bottom. Julian ate his lunch while watching the monkeys eat theirs...ur, monkey see, monkey do! (Luckily he didn't try to climb into the diaper bag!)

The lioness seemed ready to have Julian for her lunch:
Mom, can we go look for the giraffes NOW?!!!!

After all the walking around, Julian enjoyed a little snow for dessert as we were leaving!

And, this was a very exhausted Julian on the car ride home - yes, that is a cracker hanging out his mouth:

In other Julian news, he is as busy as ever working with his tools. Here he is in action:

And, finally, here's Julian examining the craft project of the day:

Oh, how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?)

  1. What an awesome video. It sounds like he says, "cut that" when he points to the "wood" he is about to cut. And he's already counting!!
