The Zoo, Part 2

I won’t even begin to tell you how many pictures I took from Caitlin’s birthday yesterday. We had a lovely family day. I was feeling a little overwhelmed by the photos actually, so I figured I would finish the zoo trip instead!

After the splash pad we came across the gorillas. As the Irishman was looking through the observation window, one of the gorillas came right up and sat in front of the window. It was amazing to see such a large animal up so close.


Caitlin wasn’t really into the petting zoo this time, but she was impressed with the birds. This one said, “Hello” and blew kisses.

By this point we were all tired. The zoo is HUGE. We should have rented the bike things, but we didn’t. We all got our exercise though!

Caitlin insisted on walking most of the time, but as closing time came closer and we realized we were no where near the exit she didn’t have much of a choice but to get in the stroller!


This sign was such a sweet sight. At one point we were not sure we would ever get out! We had to rush past the giraffes and other family favorites as the time flew by. We will have to head back another time.


So that is the end


of our trip to the zoo -
