A Day at The ZOO

We had a blast at the ZOO!

Here are a few pics from our day! PaPa and MiMi really enjoyed the tim
e with the kids. And the kids had so much fun!

I guess the giraffe was hungry...
he was eating the tree!!

This is a North American Pronghorn. The name makes sense, but I have no idea what it really is!

I love this picture of me and the kids. Most of the time I am behind the camera instead of in the pictures....Marinne was actually throwing a fit because she wanted to get out of the stroller and stay out!!!

The best part of the day was the petting zoo. All of the children loved it! Even Marinne wanted to feed the goat. Logan was so sweet to help Marinne. They all just really enjoyed this part of the zoo!

And it was so much fun to watch!! The News Director says that it's hardest to work with children and animals because they are so unpredictable. Well, I think that's what makes this so fun! Because there was just no telling what was going to happen. You can't predict what the animal will do or what the kids will do, either!

Look at the pure JOY on her face!!!

When we saw this guy, I felt like we were back in Georgia!!

Alligators still freak me out!

Beautiful birds we saw in the "rainforest!" Being in there, in the humidity, also made me feel like we were in Savannah. Wowza....I do not miss that!

I don't know if you can tell, but the blue bird has "patterned" legs! Click on the photo and you should be able to see it! (sorry the pics aren't as great as I would like....but those darn birds would not sit still....they just kept running around!)

The elephant was in a cage, because the outdoor elephant area is being renovated. Marinne has really been talking about him. But, trust me, elephants indoors are a stinky event!!!!

All in all, we had a terrific day!

Looks like you all had a great time.
Love your pics!
-the 2nd graders I have for art were sewing their own beanie babies for some science thing. I had to create and cut out patterns of the animals they chose. One little boy chose a pronghorn. Wha??? I had to look it up on the computer. I'd never heard of it before. Now, twice in one month - amazing, lol.
