we loved this guys tongue and super long fingers
we totally dig their 'fan' hair!
we missed zach!
we missed zach!
such cool red eyes
there were geese mama's laying on their eggs all throughout the zoo
i was in love with the lions today. the male was posing so beautifully for me. ;)
river said her favorite part this time were the giraffe
i love that i caught the baby with his mouth open! it's like he's yelling at the bird above his head that photo bombed the shot! ;)
this bird was awesome. if i had been just a bit taller and tad quicker i'd have caught the whole thing, but the wings are still cool!
both of these birds are stunning!
the snow leopard was hilarious! it chased it's tail before biting it and taking himself for a walk.
it was pretty funny!
a very beautiful owl!
you can see his mouth open a bit. this is right when he hissed and the gal said he wasn't quite ready to be pet by children. :)
all the kids loved the bunny and we they each got to pet it.
and you can't go to the zoo without going on the giraffe slide!
river calls brady her best buddy. they are so fun to watch together. they make me laugh. they are a lot a like in their silliness and constantly have each other laughing.
river had some allowance money so went in half for her giant sucker! geez. it's a jaw breaker kind. i used to get them as a kid and forgot how much i like them! we'd made a pretty good dent in that things. it's gone from being green to having 10 stripes of white, yellow, green, pink, and orange. kind of fun. we also shared a cotton candy. it can never pass up cotton candy! i would say it was a successful trip to the zoo! especially because when we got in the car, river so sweetly said, "that was a nice day mom. thanks for coming with me!"
