Last Monday, Columbus Day, we went to the zoo, along with everyone else. And though I knew there would be a lot of other families with the same thought, being a holiday and a gorgeous fall day, it wasn’t epically crowded. The animals were particularly active too since it was quite comfortable for October.
Spent a lot of time saying hello to the camels. We really like camels.
But the giraffes were our favorite on this day. They are so beautiful and graceful.
Not afraid to come over and say hello before bending to take a nibble.
Oh, hello again.
The autumn grasses were just beautiful in the sunlight.
Of course we visited the new bear habitat. The polar bear jumped in the water for a cool-down and swam right up to the glass where P was standing, but of course that photo didn’t turn out. It was amazing though. After a visit to the veterinarian’s office in the Hamlin Children’s Zoo,
it was time for a ride on the merry-go-round. I think that is P’s favorite thing at the zoo. And we are very specific about the animal we ride. This time, a penguin and then a kangaroo.
It was a great day out.
