Knoxville Zoo

On Saturday, we headed off to Knoxville to take the kids to the zoo...Believe it or not...Cade has never been...So, he had a blast...and loved all of the animals...His favorite was the lions, monkeys, and rhinos....Here is a pic of me and the kids in front of the elephants.....The kids comparing James' height to a giraffe.....Cade is the bravest of all my kids...Ian and Macey didn't want to have any part of this camel...and Cade just petted him, and wanted to feed him too...James bought him some food, and Cade stuck his hands right up there and fed him...No fear...of anything...Sometimes that is a scary thing....=)This was HILARIOUS...Cade was sitting here eating pringles...and this chimp walked right over to where Cade was sitting....and just sat there...watching him...Cade felt sorry for him, and thought he wanted something to eat...so he offered him a pringle...Everyone was cracking up...People were asking if they could take a pic of Cade...it was so funny...Here are a few pics of him...with his "new friend"... This was a chimpanzee's "nest"...and the kids decided to try it out...and see how it slept...they are so funny...they definitely have a photographer for a mom...always looking for a pose....Posing with the Parrots....Ian...acting like he was eaten by a huge owl.... Macey sitting on a butterfly bench...pretty girlCade and Mommy...Ian "milking a cow"...so funny...The kids posing with "Flat Cade"...a Flat Stanley, Kingdergarten project.....where we have to take pics of his Flat Cade in different places we go as a family....We got a few comments on our "4th child"...

After the zoo, we headed to Pigeon Forge to eat...the kids were starved....and then to shop at a few places....then headed home...Long day, but lots of fun...Love spending time with my family....

Wow! It looks like you guys had a great Spring Break. My kids have their break this week. I am working a couple days and taking the end of the week off. We are headed to Wilderness at the Smokies...with the indoor waterpark. Have you guys tried that out yet? We are hoping it is a lot of fun. I love all your pictures!
