A Trip to the Zoo

 

 

We made a trip to the zoo this week. We went the opposite way that we usually take through the zoo, so it seemed new to us. Instead of being hot, tired, and ready to go at the petting zoo and the birds, Grace was excited and ready to play. Zoo - 09132013 - 01 - WEB

This goose seemed a little lost and really liked Grace. He followed us for about 30 yards.

She always checks on the goats to see if they are asleep or not.

Grace had fun playing these African drums for a few minutes – it was the first time that we had visited and there weren’t a dozen other kids playing them. She had fun running back and forth among them…

…Until she realized that there were excavators and other large machinery behind this fence – working on the new gorilla habitat.

I had to wait a few more minutes for her to just watch the men/machines work.
