A Crazy Day At the Zoo

 We packed lunches and got ready to head out for a fun day at the zoo with the boys' cousins, aunt, and grandmother. 



We arrived at the zoo and spent 4 hours walking around looking at animals. They had a ball. We saw a few animals that we hadn't been able to see on our last few visits and they had so much fun playing with their cousins. Here are a few highlights from our day:

a snapping turtle


turtles have their spines attached to the shells


learning about feathers and how birds "seal" them


Playing with the water station


colors, wheels and gears are so fun


wind chimes


making forts with scarves

the boys played with the ropes and hooks


the elephants were outside


kangaroos

      

the giant anteater

enjoying our Del's and sharing with the dog



Red panda's are still a huge hit


All the animals were so close today



some fountain fun
the snow leopard was finally out!


playing with the Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle boards

all the boys on the branch
the kids loved watching the bear play on his swing
The boys noticed this morning that our caterpillars were hanging upside down from the lids of the
cups and they were so excited to think that they'd be making chrysalises soon.


It was a very fun, very full, tiring day.

  1. I want to see a snow leopard! What a wonderful day at the zoo! Thanks for sharing! We love visiting our local zoo (Zoo Knoxville) and are looking forward to visiting Cincinnati Zoo next summer. They have a polar bear!

    1. My boys were really excited to see the polar bears at the Buffalo zoo a couple of years ago! Their paws are just so massive.
