Trip To The Zoo With Our Cousins

Saturday, August 11, 2012


Dave’s sister and 3 out of 4 of her boys came to visit us last weekend! The first thing we had to do was take them to the zoo. We love the zoo!


Our first stop is just about always the polar bear, Nikita. He is so cute! We got a treat this time, as he was receiving an afternoon treat in a can. He brought the can right over to where we were standing and opened it in front of us! Out came lots of food just like Rudy eats! He also got out what looked like some sticks of butter.

Next we took a carousel ride, drank some free water in cone shaped cups, visited the snakes, and went to watch the bird show.

Next up was feeding the lorikeets. My big kids are terrified, so they didn’t come in!

Yehuda really wanted to feed a bird. Then he looked up and one pooped on him! Ick. Simon enjoyed running back and forth.

Next was my favorite section of the zoo, the rainforest, home of these super cute monkeys, otters, porcupines, capybaras, etc.

And then it was on to Zachary’s favorite part of the zoo – the train ride! IMG_8385 IMG_8386 IMG_8387 IMG_8388 IMG_8389 IMG_8391

We took the train to see the tigers.

And that was about all we did at the zoo that day! The zoo is huge and we like to visit different sections each time, but we covered our favorites with our cousins! Stay tuned for another activity we did with them while they were here!
