Another trip to the Zoo

One of the last times we went to the zoo we got a family pass to the zoo.  It seemed like we were going often enough that it would be worth it.  For my family, if we went twice a year, it would pay for itself.  I am glad I got it. 

I got a call from a friend who said she was thinking about the zoo.  We had planned a zoo trip before but the weather was bad and we canceled it.  This particular day was perfect for the zoo. 

The zoo has a few baby animals, tigers, an elephant, a girafee, snow leopards too I think although I haven't seen them.  I could be missing one or two still.

This zoo trip the big girls were in school so I took Samantha and Amber.  We rode the carousel twice, which Amber each time just wanted to ride the peacock bench.  I thought what a waste, although it wasn't really.  She still had fun.  I forget that my fun isn't always the same as the next persons fun. Samantha didn't really seem to care where she rode.  She rode a lion first and then the peacock second. 

The peacock is kind of cool too, because my parents have peacocks at their house.  Maybe she was just thinking of her grandparents and the peacocks there.  She loves her Grandma and Grandpa! (all three sets of them)

The girls loved the water, although what little ones don't?

I love the facial expression here!  I have seen another little girl about that age with that same face.  (me)

Samantha kept picking up leaves and giving them to us.

She doesn't look that happy, but she did like the elephant.

The baby elephant was fun to watch.

All three of us together.

The girls on the carousel riding the peacock....

And while riding the carousel Amber spotted one of the zoo's real peacocks.

I don't think I can ever get tired of going to the zoo.  I would probably go more often if it was closer.  I think this spring when the weather warms up we will be going more often.  The zoo people where putting up lights when we were there.  I will have to go back for the zoo lights which I am guessing will start after Thanksgiving.

That was such a fun day! I don't think I could ever tire of it, either. I'm so glad we got to go together!
