A trip to the zoo

Since Raymond’s spring break was this past week, we were able to enjoy some extra family time!  A friend gave us a couple of free passes to the zoo recently, so we decided that this would be the perfect little excursion since we felt like Abigail was old enough to take notice of the animals and play around a little bit.  We invited our good friends, Andrew & Becca, to go with us as well.

I think Abigail had a really awesome time running around outside (she took a super nap that afternoon!) and Charlotte slept almost the entire time we were there…success!  I will say that going on the last day of spring break was probably not the best idea as everybody else on spring break was also there plus a few field trip groups.  But we had fun spending time with our friends and teaching Abigail some animal names :)

You’ll notice in the pictures below that there aren’t really any pictures of the animals…that’s because most of the animals were just laying there (and about half of the ones that were laying there had their backs turned toward us…).  The gorilla was very interactive with his audience, but he was behind glass so the pictures didn’t turn out well.  I guess there’s something about being caged up and having no need to hunt your food down that makes life a little boring.



One thought on “A trip to the zoo

  1. Looks like fun, Use to always go to the zoo in D.C. Now I don’t have to, I raised 4 kids and lived in one for many years. Sorry kids I could not help myself. When it is all said and done , my zoo turned out pretty well. With Love, The Former ZooKeeper No Offence intended, just a little I Survived Parenting Humor.
