It's a Zoo!

It's kind of a zoo at our house, but we thought we'd head out to the REAL zoo.
It's finally warming up to the 50s, and we are all a little stir crazy inside the house for the Winter. Fortunately, Cousin Lauren was able to join us while Dad and Kylie stayed at home.

We started out seeing some flamingos and meerkets, but quickly got to see our favorites - the lions and the elephants and the zebras. Kate and Connor thought the picture cutouts of the animals (where you put in your head) where pretty funny - and I loved the photo opp.

We were in the middle of kid heaven - strollers, parents and toddlers everywhere. The one thing that the kids really wanted to see were the Pandas. I don't know if they remember them from last year, or if they just remember them from our books - but either way - they loved seeing them.

After some lunch we went to the petting zoo. While the kids loved seeing the pigs and goats and lambs - they refused to touch any of them this time. Can't say I blame them. The whole place stunk of - well - animals!

Before we could head out, we had to take a ride on the train. While it is a SLOW ride and silly - the kids loves hearing the train blow it's horn and going through the dark tunnels at the Zoo. What a great way to wrap up our visit.
