If you know him, you know๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ My Dad is the absolute best, he is the king of spontaneous daddy/daughter zoo trips, lunch dates, movie nights & just hanging out. He taught me a strong work ethic, and continues to impress me on a daily basis with how hard he works. Thanks for everything dad๐Ÿ’• #happyfathersday #dadsanddaughters


howdy ;)) โ™ก


We had so much fun at the @hoglezoo after hours! Daddy was home completing his midterm for his Executive MBA, so it was a girls night out! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ’๐Ÿฆ“๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿป


The last time we went to the zoo was over 12 years ago!๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ My kids were acting like they had never seen a monkey or elephant before... then I realized, they hadnโ€™t.


Come on a safari with me ๐Ÿฆ


Yโ€™all donโ€™t have a pet elephant??๐Ÿค”




Can all of my video shoots be at the zoo? Seriously, I felt like a kid again. FUN FACT: Itโ€™s impossible to be in a bad mood when youโ€™re looking at a polar bearโ€ฆ Thatโ€™s science, look it up ๐Ÿค“ #hoglezoo #KJZZ #KUTV #TV


Kids watch a red panda walk through the new Janet Quinney Lawson Red Panda Exhibit at Utahโ€™s @hoglezoo in Salt Lake City on Wednesday. Itโ€™s been nearly a decade since guests have been able to see the furry creatures, but now the #zoo is welcoming a 4-year-old male and a 7-year-old female from @reidparkzoo in Tucson, Arizona. According to the zoo, the two have been acclimating to their new exhibit, which features close to 360-degree viewing; two areas for nose-to-nose encounters; and views from the upper dining deck of the Asian Highlands area. The #animalsโ€™ new home is also equipped with cooling spots and a recirculated water feature. #RedPandas are an endangered species native to the eastern Himalayas and southwestern China. Often confused with a raccoon or fox, the red panda is mainly active at dawn and dusk and mostly eats bamboo. Thick, red fur covers their entire body, including the soles of their feet, to help conserve body heat. . ๐Ÿ“ท: Kristin Murphy on #DNassignment

Sorta... ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ €โ € Our oldest daughter always walks close to Daddy, often wrapped under his arm. โ˜‚๏ธ And, just opposite, youโ€™ll likely find our youngest daughter spinning at his finger tips. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ โ €โ € This is my view. ๐Ÿ‘€ The one I come back to when everything is consumed by chaos. ๐ŸŒ€๐Ÿ’ญ Whether we are exploring @hoglezoo, ๐Ÿฆ grocery shopping, ๐Ÿ›’ or going on a walk or a hike, ๐Ÿ” THIS is what I stop in my tracks for. ๐Ÿ‘ฃ I deliberately fall a few steps behind anytime that I can, just so I can seize the opportunity to watch these moments unfold. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘€ & I donโ€™t always pull out my camera. Sometimes Iโ€™m simply selfish, and keep the memory all to myself. ๐Ÿ˜Ž โ €โ € My girls donโ€™t realize what Iโ€™m doing half the time, and their daddy will sometimes look back at me with a grin on his face, ๐Ÿ˜ reassuring me that Iโ€™m not forgotten in what seems like a minuscule minute of our lives. (Or, heโ€™s reassuring himself that I didnโ€™t make a break for it for some โ€œme timeโ€, leaving him alone with two wild girls! ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฃ) Either way, this view is ever changing. The girls get taller every year. (Or, is he shrinking? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคฃ) They are growing up so fast, and I hope that one day, when Iโ€™m old and gray, with shakey bones and a blinged out cane, (because yes, Iโ€™ll be that gotdamn โ€œextraโ€ in old age ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ) I will still find myself falling behind this view. Iโ€™ll get to remember how much unconditional love that I have been blessed to witness come from the bonds between my daughters and their daddy for each and every passing year of their lives, while they will never fathom it. ๐Ÿ’— โ €โ € Thank you, for being the father that you are. ๐Ÿ™๐ŸปBecause of you, our daughters will NEVER have to wonder their worth, because you ALWAYS put them first. ๐Ÿ–ค โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”
