A Trip to the Zoo - What a Beautiful Day!

This past Saturday we made our first zoo trip of 2009! I had been debating about breaking down and buying the zoo membership since last summer. Last year, before summer, I wasn't sure how much we would use it with a new baby on the way (translated=me being super pregnant and not wanting to walk the hills of the zoo with kids in tow), and then with *3 kids*, if I would be out that much right away. So.......we didn't get it. It was a good choice for last year. This summer is a different story. I bought the membership and am so happy I did! We have only been once so far..............and here are some pictures.

I never thought I would love the sea lions so much! I think it was a high point for me (for all of us really).

The polar bears (well, at least one) was putting on a show too. He kept swimming (backwards) right up to the glass and back. (He's there in the picture, but he's a little hard to see). Ella has a new trick: pointing. Here she is pointing at the polar bear.

We even saw one of the elephants inside doing tricks! They were circus-like stunts. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures. We caught the tail end of it. After that, we bought 2 elephant ears. Yum! The wait was tortuous for them.........but worth it in my opinion. :)

Okay, that's all for now. Enjoy your day. :)

Looks like a great day! The sea lions are my favorite too!

We don't go that often, but we also have the zoo pass and it definately pays for itself. Also, it helps on days when it just isn't working out or if it starts raining, then you don't feel so bad if you need to leave quickly.
