|Our crew at the zoo!|
The day was B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!!!! Not sure we could have planned better weather if we'd tried.
The sun was shining, but it wasn't hot. NO humidity. NO bugs. Just pleasant blue skies, warm breezes. PERFECT!
The girls requested we see peacocks, zebras, and giraffes.
|Such beautiful colors. We saw|
|This giraffe kept chasing all the others. Funny.|
The older kids ALWAYS want to see the cheetahs and big cats.
|A couple cheetahs. Such amazing speed. But, not this day.|
|A big tiger pacing back and forth.|
|An adorable leopard |
baby and it's mama.
|Sorta looks like the bear who visited our kitchen. :-)|
|Wouldn't want to be on the|
receiving end of those quills.
Bears, porcupines, monkeys, birds of all kinds, sea lions, penguins, reptiles, and fish of great variety also encapsulated the various critters we were blessed to see that day.
|Nana nana boo boo! See his tongue sticking out?|
|Amazingly long legs.|
|Waving to the crowd.|
|Yep, a 2 hump camel.|
|the penguins retiring to their habitat|
after being fed fish. Cute.
|Turtles are just. plain. fun!|
|A unicorn fish of some kind.|
|A pretty fish. Good enough|
reason to take a picture, right?
|Amazed by the unique fish. Our littles - all in a row.|
|Entering the 'reptile' house.|
|Alligator or crocodile?|
|The Komodo Dragon. We|
learned lots of new tidbits
about this particular creature.
Here's a few more pictures of our day. Enjoy!
|Guess the snack wasn't enough. He found a WHOLE sandwich in the|
garbage and sat and ate it while we watched. Too funny.
|Squirrel enjoying a little snack.|
