Our Zoo at the Zoo

We took advantage of our zoo membership and took part in the Members’ Night festivities.  Our local zoo plans these member nights three times a year and they are always a treat and less crowded for our crew.

We thought Y the Brave had been to a zoo before because he lives in a city where there is a zoo.  But, he told us over and over that he had never been.  It was so much fun watching his excitement over seeing the animals up close.  DSC_2266 Spot our bunch…I have to say tie dye shirts are my favorite family shirts so far.  They were a lot of fun to make and easy to spot.DSC_2268 New sea otters exhibit is so interesting!DSC_2270 DSC_2271 DSC_2272 But, Emmie loved the bears.  She “oooohed” over them the most.DSC_2274 DSC_2276 DSC_2284 A volunteer singing about koalas.  We can’t call them koala bears now.DSC_2287 Feeding the Lorakeets.  They were so full from the whole day of eating but we managed to get them to take a bite or two.DSC_2295 DSC_2298 DSC_2299 Flamingo impersonation.DSC_2313 Y the Brave told us that he wanted to see elephants most of all.  I think he was thrilled when he got to see them.  But the smell…well, it always knocks us all off our feet.DSC_2315 A bunch of Characters in a small train car.  Mostly all smiles.
