The Zoo

Last week was spring break for Matt so we decided to go to the zoo on one of the warm days. I forgot how far away the zoo is. It seemed to take forever to get there. But that is possibly due to the fact that Nicole whined the whole way up because she was car sick and had a bruised leg.

But, as soon as we got there, it was all smiles and fun. The kids loved looking at the animals. Neither of them remembered going to the zoo last year, so it was like going for the first time for them. Dano was so excited about every animal we saw. He kept saying, "Wow!" and laughing at every animal that we saw. They were both so happy while we were there that it was so much fun.

Luckily, we remembered to bring the camera, so now I will let the pictures do the talking.

 I love this picture because it turned out that I could see Dano's face in the window.

 The only pic of me since I was behind the camera so much.

This is Dano at the Giraffes. Dano surprised us by pointing to the smaller giraffe and saying, "baby giraffe" and then to the bigger one and saying, "mama giraffe." Which may not seem like a big deal to you, but it is the first time he has put together that small animals are babies and big ones are parents. It was exciting for us.

And this is a sand cat, which looks like a cat that is a little smaller than a domestic cat and... it was the kids favorite animal at the zoo. Not the elephants or bears or tigers or any of the really cool animals, nope, they loved the cat. Could have just gone over to Marie's to see her cats and it would have taken less time and a lot less money. But, I'm still glad that we went because we all had a lot of fun.

Maybe I should start charging admission.
