We loved walking through the zoo, looking at all of the animals and sometimes the statue animals were more entertaining that the real ones.
Kim's favorite animal is a leopard. Her school in Northern California, Lafayette Elementary, their mascot is a leopard and the office was full of different leopards. So she wanted a picture of a real leapard.
This is the bridge over the black bear exhibit. It is also the 'gateway' to the Great Northwest part of the zoo. It isn't visited as much as you would think because most of the animals there we see outside of the zoo.
This is the bronzed goat that is touched by all the little children every time they walk by. So needless to we had to get a picture.
The hippos were lounging around and the girls thought it was really cute.
The Meerkats were pretty much the only animals out and playing. So we had to take a picture. The LCD screen on the back of our camera is cracked so you can only see the corner of the picture and it has no hole to look through so some of our pictures don't capture all of what we would want. Kim was in this picture, at lease part of her. :) Most of the exhibits were closed for cleaning. Plus, we used to watch Meerkat Manor.
Here we are back at the school after the trip. We were all very tired. Dave had worked the night (graveyard shift) before and then came on the trip without sleeping. He was out cold right when we got home. Kim fell asleep on the way home and I took a nap once we got home. Needless to say, last night the house was very quiet except for Hadley. She refused to go to sleep, which she often does. She ended up snuggling with Daddy last night for a while and the funny thing about it is that Dave had no clue she came in.
*There are more pictures if you go to older posts. I posted the day before yesterday as well. Don't miss out on Hadley's ballet outfit. *
