We got to go to the zoo this past Sunday. It was beautiful weather and to add to the fun, our baby niece and her mom and dad went with us. Pretty sure I took more photos of our niece than I did of the zoo animals. 🙂 She was by far the cutest baby at the zoo! We had a fun day. We hadn’t been to the zoo for a while. When our children were younger, we went almost every spring, but I think it had been a couple of years since we were there.
I’ve always thought if you lived near a zoo, it would be great to buy a zoo membership. We don’t live close enough, but it sounds neat to be able to go to the zoo for a couple of hours or go just to walk and get some exercise and peek at a few animals too. Oh well, I do like our farm in the country. Sometimes it’s crazy enough around here to be a zoo!
Mr. Hippo would surface and open his mouth if someone would pour water from their water bottle into his pond. We saw someone doing it, so we tried it too. Monkey see. Monkey do. We all agreed we wouldn’t want to have to do any dentistry work to this mouth!
There were lots and lots of geese and their nests. We got to take a peek at the eggs in this nest. We saw one pair of geese with their goslings, but all the rest seemed to still be waiting.
Our family….end of the day, observing the penguin tank!
My son and I had fun perusing the gift shop. He modeled and I snapped pictures.
We had a great day and finished it off with supper at Five Guys Burgers and Fries.
What is one of your favorite places to go on a family outing?
