A Day at the Zoo

Last Saturday, before the sudden cold snap, we took a family to the Hogle Zoo.

The weather was perfect--not too hot, not too cold. The animals were out and about. The zoo wasn't too crowded, and we got to see them feed a penguin fish. RD loved the lizard his dad told him was a dinosaur. IC said she liked the zebras the best.

In this picture, AL was a little nervous at first when the giraffe started to lower and tried to pull herself up the pole until she realized that the animal would rise up and sink down. Then, she was fine. She had a ball going around in circles and waving at everyone as we passed. The rest of my nieces and nephews who were old enough to care about riding on a carousel had ridden the turn before.

What a fun day! Becca thanks for sharing this picture!

Well, RD just wanted to see the Dinpsaurs at teh Zoo, and the only way to keep him from throwing a fit was to say that the lizards were dinosaurs.
