woodland park zoo lights excursion

Last night we went to the zoo lights with my Seattle bestie, Sadie, and her family. Between the two kids there was always one crying or freaking out, it was pretty fantastic. That's just what happens when you go out right before bedtime. Hell hath no furry like a child up past their bedtime. 

Despite crazy children the whole experience was so much fun, and I'm so glad we got to go with some of our friends. (Although the whole time I kept wishing I hadn't just watched the entire first season of "Human Prey" on Netflix. I kept imagining some sort of escaped animal pouncing on us from a tree or something.)

 ^^^ When we walked aimlessly around the zoo trying to find the entrance in the dark.

 ^^^ Ahhh, there it is!

 ^^^ This picture was taken right after we discovered our apple cider spilled all over our stroller (shouldn't have impatiently taken it off-roading to pass all the slow walkers). Josh was a champ and ran to the bathroom to get some paper towels while Madelyn and I spent some good quality time with the smelly reindeer. But seriously, yay for sticky stroller handles!  And Madelyn's face just cracks me up in this one. So much milk storage potential in those cheeks. 

 ^^^ Probably my favorite picture of the night, little koala bear Madelyn trying so hard to look at her surroundings even though she has to practically bend in half to see around daddy's big puffy jacket.

 ^^^ This picture brings me so much happiness. Right after we took this picture and as Josh was looking at it he sadly said, "I thought we were doing funny faces!" Whoops! Let's be honest though, he's the best part of this photo.

 A good time was had, and the fact that no exotic animals escaped and mauled someone made it even better. Man, I need to start watching more positive shows.
