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



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.
