A Zoo Day

Today was a Zoo day for us. The trip was planned basically last-minute to get a picture for a #tbt, honestly. But the kids really proved themselves out yesterday and this morning, so they more than earned this “surprise”.

July Pittsburgh Zoo Members’ Night

Our cousins came to town just in time to enjoy some summer fun with us. One of the things we did was take D to the Pittsburgh Zoo Members Night on July 31. We always love our time at the Zoo, and Members’ Night is always an added bonus.
