Here is my oldest.. looking at the turtles.. getting ready to head into the Zoo.
I won't share all my pictures.. cuz I took quite a few.. but here are a few. Here is the Elephant..Pin It
And here are a couple monkeys.. er.. ah.. I mean, my two boys giving me their "hurry up and take the picture" smiles.
Here is my youngest.. the gagger.. he can't handle smells AT ALL!!.. needless to say, he couldn't go into the petting zoo.
And this is Fast Eddie... you can't tell from the picture.. but he was running!! lol
Time for a snack.. we packed apples and lil cutie oranges in the bag. Yummy. Then we were back on the bikes and rolling.
My personal favorite.. the giraffes.. I could spend all day watching them.
Hugging the Komodo Dragon.. ok.. this is the statue. The real Komodo Dragon is behind the glass. But looks real doesn't it?!
And the orangutans.. I love this picture.. it turned out great. They were so funny - we had fun watching them.
The exhibit had this bag "Daddy".. plus two women.. and one baby. He was adorable. And it really looked like the baby wanted to jump up to play with all the kids watching him. He kept putting his hand up towards the kids. I couldn't get a good picture of that though.
And.. when we returned home - "Buddy" had arrived. He comes to our house the day after Thanksgiving.. and he stays until Christmas. He flies back to the North Pole each night to report to Santa. And every morning.. he's in a new perch.
You can talk to him.. but he's not allowed to talk to you. The kids use him as a confessional.. it's pretty funny. They also occasionally tattle on the other one. Buddy is going to be a busy little elf the next few weeks.
