The zoo

Yesterday we visited our local zoo for the day. The kids really enjoyed themselves. Cate was a little under the weather though, we hope she feels better soon.
Emily and Bella

Beautiful little Cate.

Kristjan loved the goats. Most were trying to take their afternoon nap so it was easy for him to get close.
Emily really loves the goats.

The carousel is Kristjan's favorite ride so far. The ride is always to short and he doesn't like it when it's time to go.
Speaking of rides. Bella really wanted to ride log flume ride. Until she got on it.

The carousel is more her speed still.

Right before we left we let Krisjan cool off in the little fountains.
He lost his balance and fell right on top of it. As you can see it didn't phase him in the least. He could have played in that water all day.

We hope to see Caroline, Neal, Cate and Emily again soon. If I have my way, we'll be driving up there to see them really soon. Just have to save the money, get the time off work and butter up the old man a little (11-15 hours drive; depending on traffic, with a little one that tends to protest after being seated so long). I think I have a lot of work to do.

What a great field trip! Your girls look horrified on that ride. lol!

Your zoo looks much warmer than ours. We were there yesterday and we were pretty chilly for the first couple hours.

Have a great weekend!

We live in Florida so most of the animals are from warmer climates. Sometimes it can get too hot to enjoy. I did notice that yours had polar bears and walruses. Very cool!

Zoo passes here for the family are cheap. We only paid for some rides since we had family visiting. Normally we don't spend the extra money on them. Too expensive!
