Driving Home

We had a fun filled weekend in Portland.
I was the guest of the day at our hotel which meant I got two bottles of water and a chocolate bar. Wow. And the sign.  
Nice pillow Naomi.

Naomi kept herself busy reading books and watching shows on the way home.

Oregon Zoo

We had a fun time at the Oregon Zoo in Portland. We saw a baby elephant taking a nap next to its mommy. Ashley got to see her favorite animal, the Hippo play with a ball, and we rode on a steam engine train.

Rachel was upset the real lions were sleeping.

Our purple monkey has some long arms, too.
The polar bears were fun to watch.

Hey, whose in the polar bear's snow cave?

They even swam for us.

The sea lion was swimming in loops for us.
The hippo rolled his ball down the path and then played with it in the water.
