(OK, so the pictures have gotten out of order a little, and I can't figure out how to get them back in order so we'll just go with it, k? Good!)
We have some friends that will be moving back to Washington state in the next few months, so we decided that while we still had time to see them before they left, we'd get together and take the kids to the zoo.
<----The zoo has a wild bird walk about, where all these little birds just fly around. They have feeding sticks for $1 and if you have one, the birds SWARM you! It's crazy how many birds will come try to eat off your little stick! Kyndall wasn't super excited about this.
The zoo also has a penguin exhibit. This is always one of Kyndall's favorite places to go. There was one little guy swimming right next to the glass. Kyndall followed it up and down the window for quite a while. I'm sure she would have stayed there almost all day if we would have let her.
My favorite is the elephants! Not sure why, but I love seeing them. The day we went the gate was open so we were able to all the way down to them. This one elephant was right up close to the fence. With arm and trunk extended, you would be mere inches away from it! It started to fling water/mud onto itself to help stay cool, and if we had not moved, we would have gotten dirty.
(Ok, so my spacing is apparently off too, sorry! Not sure whats going on with this post...)
At the beginning of the zoo, they have a little river/lake/pond where ducks and fish swim. They have fish/duck food available to feed them. Kyndall enjoyed do this as well.
The bear was the one animal Kyndall kept saying she wanted to see, and lucky for us, both bears were right up by the glass. They weren't active, but we could see them. She kept calling them Baylor Bears and saying "Sic 'em Bears!" (She's not biased at all is she?)
Here are our sweet friends Angela and Connor. Connor and Kyndall are 3 days apart in age. We are sad they are moving, but glad we got to see them and will hopefully get to see them again before they leave.
