Claire was in heaven practically the entire day. She loved all the animals, but went berserk when she saw the train that goes around a portion of the zoo. She is in love with trains and could hardly stand the fact that she had to wait in line to get on it. In fact, we almost had a meltdown as we almost made it on the train, but were stopped at the last minute. Thankfully, there were a few spots left and we made it on, otherwise we would have had the worlds greatest freakout, toddler style. She loved the train ride and wanted to go on another one as soon as we got off, but unfortunately, we only had enough free passes for one ride. I think her all time favorite animals were the monkeys (mo-kees) as she couldn't stop talking about them after we left! We bought a season pass, so we will definitely be going back again soon!
Thanks Jeannie, Lee, Grayson, Bree and Avery for sharing the day with us! It was a blast!
|I had NO idea that anteaters were as big as they are! This thing was massive!|
|I wish I had a video of her jumping up and down as she saw the train coming, it was so cute! She and cousin Jeannie became best buds at the zoo!|
|They had signs like these all over that you could take your picture underneath. Claire was a hair short though.|
|This little guy did not want to be stuck in his carseat, so as soon as we unbuckled him, he rolled over and stuck his head out. Silly kid!|
|Flamingos are so cool. They are a lot more orange than pink though, which kind of surprised me.|
|The baby Giraffe!|
|These poor kangaroos looked bored out of their minds!|
|Koala bear! She was tiny! I seriously wanted to take her home with us, she was so cute. Then I saw her massive claws and decided against it.|
|This guy was GORGEOUS. I don't know that the picture does him justice!|
|Penguins are also extremely loud. In case you were wondering.|
|Mama and baby tiger!|
