Zoology 102

You may remember I posted a summer to-do list which included going to the zoo. We did that earlier this summer and I have some great pictures to post. But I don't have them at home, so you'll see those shortly!

Our second trip to the zoo this summer was just Maddie and I. We took a picnic -- peanut butter and jelly and bananas, so we had to keep our distance from the elephants and monkeys!

But the gorillas came right up to us anyway! This baby was putting on quite the show.

The nicest thing was that hitting the zoo on a Wednesday during the fall meant we had the whole place to ourselves. And just this peacock for company.

One of my favorite zoo memories was when mom and I took Izaak and Malachai one summer day. Mom had a flat tire earlier in the day, so we didn't get to the zoo until half an hour before closing, which is also feeding time. ALL of the animals were awake, and got as close to us as they could, because they were waiting for their meals! Even the alligator came right up the the glass to look us over. SO much fun.
