zoo's website. <= click. Seriously. Can I take one home please? But we finally persuaded Adalyn to let other kids have her viewing spot so we could move on. We decided to take a train ride through Africa to see the zebra and giraffes (and some other stuff too).
(Love the half smile.)
How cute are my parents holding hands walking through the zoo? :)
Of course I didn't get a picture of it facing us. They really liked this little ledge in the shade. So cute!
He was such a good boy all day!
This guy was cracking us up. He had this blankie that he carried all over with him. Then he laid it out on the ground, grabbed an orange and just laid there sunbathing eating his orange. So funny!
We were watching the gorillas and this guy was laying up against the glass pretending to sleep. As if he was trained to do so, as soon as I lifted my camera up he showed his teeth like he was smiling for us. So funny when the animals put on a show.
Adalyn liked the gorillas!
This was the BIG guy in the exhibit and after we were giving the last gorilla attention this guy came charging at the other gorilla and made him move and took his seat. Then he just sat staring at Adalyn. So fun to be so close to these huge animals and to even get to interact with them like that.
Then we headed to the elephants. (Yes, there is a pretty cute baby elephant too!) The trainers came in to work with the elephants on listening activities. We got to see their training up close. It was awesome!
Cayden slept through the excitement.
We always get a picture on this elephant. It has been there for decades and we have a ton of pictures of my brothers and me on this thing so of course we have to make new memories on it. Cayden was still sleeping. Maybe next time he'll get in the picture.
Watching the penguins swimming. Daddy's favorite.
