Staying cool

We hadn't gone to the zoo all summer and we discovered they were holding their last "spray-down" day of the season the day after we went to the amusement park.  Since Biju had taken Thursday and Friday off from work, we took the boys out to a Chinese buffet and then headed over to the zoo.

We made them wear their trunks but didn't tell them where we were going or why they had to wear swimwear.  They were thrilled when they finally found out!

It was another hot day so we brought their umbrellas along for portable shade.  And also made great use of my sister's baby stroller we were borrowing!

Time to go get sprayed down by the fire department!

The "puddle" was more like a lake!  Ajay is showing how deep the water was out in the middle.

Aren got a little wet, too....then went and played near Daddy's feet.  In dirt and mulch. 

Having fun with the fire truck and their umbrellas.

Aren enjoying the turtles in the water.

Looking forward to cooler weather so we can spend a longer time looking at the animals.
