our day at the zoo

We did things a little differently than we usually do…

Hope still fed the giraffes…because that’s the main reason we go to the zoo.

And it wouldn’t be a trip to the zoo without it. Then into the barn to see the new babies.

Just barely born and 6 feet tall…sweet deal.

The lions were out on their rock…so we said hello to them too.

But then we spent some time checking out the critters we usually don’t stop to see.

Like the ducks…Hope got the biggest kick out of watching them dive…

And the turkeys

The turkeys and ducks live with the the resident moose…Tahoma…

Not sure which of the tigers was out that day, but it’s always fun to see one of them moving around.

Hope was mostly curious if there were any ducks in the water over by the tigers…?

“No, not with the tigers darling.”

And then we went back to see the ducks some more…

I’m working on taking better pictures…bear with me…working is the key word…I haven’t the slightest clue what I’m doing most of the time…moving objects contained behind fences don’t help…


78 degrees…for about 10 minutes…it got me thinking about how lovely spring is…and about all the amazing creatures God has made…it’s so fun to see my daughter get excited about critters the way I did when I was her age still do.

    Have you ever heard the motto “Clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy”? Deep cleaning can be over rated :-). Love, Mom.
