the morning Papa T left for Minnesota we took advantage of being up near the airport and went to the Hogle Zoo and then got lunch at Noodles and Co. it was the perfect zoo weather and our little animal lover Hayes was in heaven.
here's the obligatory family photo:
just an orangutang sipping his morning green smoothie - he's so trendy.
so many of these photos show Hayes looking under diress. not sure what's that about. he truly lit up at seeing all these animals up close and personal. a zoo-lady was walking around with a barn owl and Hayes got to get nose to nose. he didn't stop saying "see ya Owl! hoo-hoo!" the rest of the day.
the zoo really knows how to woo a guy, animals and a train? Hayes was thrilled.
the big money moment was seeing the gorillas. as previously mentioned, Hayes has a real love for the movie Tarzan, after our recent trip to the Bean Museum we bought Hayes a tiny quarter-sized Gorilla that he calls "Key-check" (Kerchak) and carries literally everywhere.
it was for sure my favorite animal at the zoo, too.

and on the way home i finally saw the billboard i styled for Lime Ricki a while ago.
so naturally, let's risk our lives and try to get a pic with it!
