Wow, what a weekend.
We took the kids to Memphis Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. It was 24 hours of fun. We spent the afternoon/evening with Alicia's aunt and uncle who moved to Collierville (hope I spelled that right) over the summer. I'm not sure who had more fun, the kids or the great-aunt and uncle. It being the night with an extra hour the kids had an extra hour of playtime. They both seem to have taken to the time change pretty well. Both were exhausted by the time bedtime rolled around but they both slept decently for being in a strange place.
Sunday morning we headed over to the Memphis Zoo to meet a couple of Alicia's high-school friends and their kids. They served as wonderful tour guides for the visit. Eli and Joel hit it off. Both kids tell us their favorite part of the Zoo was the Pandas.
Well, enough of my yacking, onto the pictures.
They both enjoyed watching the pandas. They were in their day-rooms eating breakfast (or maybe a mid-morning snack) instead of outside but that was OK.
Emily decided to imitate Eli while watching some monkeys.
Too cute to not grab a picture of. Siblings strolling along holding hands. It didn't last long.
Trying to get a better view of the rhino.
Kicking back for a rest.
I think they were looking into the polar bear pool. They were sunning themselves instead of swimming though.

Who needs animals. Matt and I considered just buying a pay-per-use binocular thing. We'd treat is as a time-share. Alternate houses. Then our wives reminded us we would have to transport it. Oh well...
The baby (1 year old) giraffe was cute.
Mesmerized by the alligator (or maybe crocodile, don't remember which)
