The weather has been fantastic this weekend - the perfect weather to try out the zoo with Quinn. They open at 9am and we are always up by then.

We arrived there a little after 9:30 and that was perfect timing. The zoo wasn't too busy and it wasn't too hot.
He wasn't afraid of the aquarium at all, which was great news. The fish at cabelas have freaked him out every time we've visited there, so we were a little nervous.
All the animals were new to him, and probably very strange.
He was a pretty good sport about everything, although he wouldn't touch any of the animals in the barn area.
Because we were at the zoo so early there were hardly any people indoors, which meant Quinn could push his stroller as much as he wanted.
We did the whole zoo which took about 2 hours and Quinn was good the whole time. When we passed the last exhibit he started to zone out a little and fell asleep in the car a few minutes later.

After a 2 hour nap, he was refreshed and ready to run around again.

We spent quite a bit of time outside today and even brought out the sidewalk chalk. He drew on the sidewalk a little. Mostly he just ran around with the chalk and rubbed it all over his shirt.

Its the last day of work for a co-worker before she moves onto a new job. A really sad day, brightened by tasty treats. All the treats were gluten free, which tasted interesting.

I had a meeting on the east side of the state for work that was going to take the better part of a day, so the whole family took a road trip. Chris visited with my parents while I went to my meeting and later in the day we all went out to visit Grandpa Karath.

Quinn had a really good time hanging out with everyone.

He loves being outside!

With the new kitchen stool comes a new found toy - the sink. Quinn has been rolling toys into the sink the last several days.

Sometimes the little guy insists on playing with my glasses.

Chris made a nice step stool for Quinn this afternoon. He already loves it!
