Dallas has been wanting to go to the zoo for a while now. We decided to make his dream come true by convincing Caroline that she wanted to go to the zoo and calling it her birthday party. Perfect plan!
We started off with the bird show. The girls LOVED the talking parrots. Can you spot the bird?
The bird show exits right by the carousel. Upon seeing the carousel, Brooke was bound and determined to have a ride. We splurged:
The zoo had moving, roaring dinosaurs scattered throughout the park:
What was the girls’ reaction to the dinosaurs? Pure terror:
Spencer’s animal encounter:
The day before we went to the zoo Brooke drew pictures of several of the animals she hoped to see. She insisted we bring them with us because she wanted to show the animals. This is her tiger:
Can you guess this one? It’s a giraffe. Brooke’s a little abstract at times:
The girls couldn’t take their eyes off of the giraffe. Not even for a picture. It’s okay. I’m sure one day I’ll want to remember what the back of their heads looked like:
Now the obligatory “Are you as big as a gorilla?” pictures:
We had a fun, sweaty day!
