This will be the first of many zoo posts...my fabulous mom got us a family season pass to the zoo for Annie's birthday! I'm so excited....
Annie has never been to the zoo before so we decided for her birthday we wanted to take her. The week of her birthday the weather was horrible so we ended up waiting, and I'm glad we did because it was a perfect day! Mark took the day off and his mom babysat Stella so we could just have some time with our big girls.
The petting zoo was a big hit. The girls loved all the animals. The Giraffes and Zebras were the favorites though I think.
Pandas are mommy's favorite!
Apparently it was national field trip day, because there were about 20 different schools there. That's not an exaggeration at all. Seriously. I didn't get to take as many pictures as I would have liked because we were navigating around the classes and trying to avoid them, which was near impossible.
Is it just me, or are gorillas really scary?!
Lesson learned....pack a lunch and eat it in the zoo. I did pack a lunch for all of us, but we left it in the car in a cooler because we figured we would just eat when we left. The girls were STARVING for some reason and got really cranky towards the end. I'm not sure why, because usually we don't eat lunch early at all. Must have been all those school kids eating at 11 am!
Still a fun and successful trip!
