A Day at the Zoo






When Amanda and her kidlets were here we kept pretty busy. One afternoon we went to a local zoo and had a blast! It was really hot outside and that made walking up and down the hills pushing strollers . . . not so much fun - but a good workout none the less. The zoo we went to has just been recently redone. It is AWESOME! They had a whole new section with water games and fun activities. My boys rejoiced to see that they are putting in a Meerkat exhibit. We all can't wait to see those little guys flitting about.

My favorite parts are the Beluga whales and the sharks. I love watching the whales glide through the water. It is very peaceful to watch. The sharks just freak me out. I kept thinking that if they could break the glass and eat my Chlobug that they would - she was right up there watching them because the glass comes right to the floor. I even had an escape route mapped out in my head just in case the glass broke - I know, I am a nut. Funny the things that run through your mind.

The zoo is really nice now. We bought season tickets (for a year) because once we would have had to pay for everyone - it just worked out to be cheaper this way. I am glad. I want to take the kids back to play around a bit more. It will be a good family day out.
So much fun!

I love the background you chose. Looks like you all had a great time. I'm always thinking the same thing when we're looking at the sharks. What if......?
