Santa Barbara Zoo

Nicole and I took the kids to Santa Barbara Zoo again. One of our favorite places to visit. It is such a nice zoo, not too big, and the scenery can't be beat. This is little Creed crawling across a grass area where we sat and ate our lunches while looking out over the ocean.
Creed is such a great little boy. He lets us take him anywhere we want to, and at any time too. I'm sure that a big part of that is me and Nicole learning to relax more. Whatever the reason, he is a great kid.
Another view of our little picnic area.
Where is Savannah in all of these pictures? Oh yea, she is in school! Ha Ha. She always has fun there too though.
Mommy and her boys
This is what happens when Creed, or anyone for that matter, takes one of Cole's "Zoo Chips". I have discovered a brand of Chips called Kettle Brand Buffalo Bleu. Our kids refer to them as Zoo Chips because they mainly get them when we go to the Zoo. In the above picture, Creed has just taken one of Cole's beloved chips.
Creed has the best smile. I'm loving my little boy smile too. I'm still trying to learn how to smile for pictures.
Cole looking out across the water at the monkey island. You can't see them in this picture, but the monkeys that reside on the island are usually pretty entertaining. Just one of the many habitats that we love at the Santa Barbara Zoo. I also really like the Gorilla enclosure, the penguins, the Snow Leapord and the California Condor habitats.
The two boys in front of Savannah's favorite animals, the Flamingos.
Me and my big guy. Cole is so funny. He always tells me, "Daddy, will you beat me up?" and "Hit me daddy, hit me!" He really likes to play rough. I don't mind too much, it's my favorite way to play too. Fun times in the past. Lots of fun times coming our way in the near future. Stay tuned for some new blogs in the next month and a half.
