Leaping Lizards and Smiling Butterflies

I love weekends that include three days with nothing planned on the calendar. Friday night is traditionally "Family Movie Night" around here, and last night was no exception. Pizza was ordered. Popcorn popped. A pallet on the floor was spread. Chocolate chip cookies were baked. And all of us hung out together watching the movie selection "Escape from Planet Earth." Mike and I thought it was okay as far as kids' movies go, but all three of our munchkins really liked it, so it was fine. 

This morning we woke up and decided that since the weather was simply beautiful (sunny with a high of 75), we needed to do something outside. A trip to the Oklahoma City Zoo was determined to be the best idea, so off we went. Turns out every other family in the near vicinity had the same idea. By the looks of the parking lot as we neared the entry area, we thought we might have to change our plans, but the kids protested so in we went. We even scored a front row parking space! Woo hoo!

In spite of the crowds, it was a gorgeous day outside, and we had a great time together as a family. 

 We let the girls try out the "Leaping Lizard" experience for the first time. They loved it!
 I love Leah's smile here. She was having a blast!
 We walked through the Butterfly Garden and had to pose for a few pictures.

Hope you are having a wonderful Saturday wherever you are today!
