Family Fun Day!

Kyle took off work Wednesday and we had a little Family Fun Day! First we went to the zoo.  It was Way Back Wednesday so admission was only $1!!  We didn't realize that when we planned the day so that was a nice surprise.  We also didn't know it was pet the lion day.
Maddie was a little skeptical at first, but she did the one finger touch like we have always taught her! 

Haha...just kidding!  Kyle's been playing around with photoshop!  It's such a fun program and great for practical jokes : ) 
So, we didn't get to pet the lion, but we did get to see the new baby elephant! 

Maddie gave the elephant a nice, big wave from a safe distance.  
After we left the zoo we went to the movie theaters for Maddie's very first Movie-Theater-Experience!  We saw the new Winnie the Pooh movie.  
Maddie really enjoyed it!  It may have been about 15 minutes too long.  She began to get a little antsy there at the end, but she did great.  
Our plan was to go eat lunch and then to the Disney store to get Maddie a plush pooh, but after lunch she was too tired.  We headed home and she fell asleep on the way.  
It was a nice break in the middle of a mundane week and we are thinking we should do this more often!!
