I kind of put it out there that we were going to the zoo on Monday and got some friends to agree to go as well. It got a little unorganized once we got there but we had fun. It sure wore Parker out, he took at 4 1/2 hr nap that day! here are some pictures I took. I got worse at taking pictures the further into the zoo we went.
my poor attempt at a panoramic short
Parkers favorite zoo animal
during that unorganized part I mentioned before, the kids played in the beloved hippie van. (Parker S: thomas hoody, Parker B: grey shirt, Eli: blue shirt, Connor: orange shirt)
checking out Tarzans daddy. Lydia, Parker B, Parker S, Lily
cant forget the truck by the bears. there were 2 brown bears in this exhibit that were going crazy. running around, rough housing, jumping in the truck. it made the half of the truck outside of the exhibit bounce when the bear jumped into the bed of the truck. kind of freaked the kids out
A couple of us went back for the tiger trainer. Parker thought it was pretty cool. Sorry for the horrible picture at the end, just trying to show her standing up.
