A few months back Nixon Grace
asked me if elephants were really real?
I realized that she was too
young to remember our trips
to the zoo and that we really
needed to take the kids back soon!
We have been trying to take them since
August and haven't found
the time until this past week!
We stopped at Montgomery Zoo on
our way to Leroy for Thanksgiving!
Jared and I were a little disappointed because
most of the animals were sleeping/ hiding.
It was kind of like "Where's Waldo?"
at most of the exhibits.
But the kids had a wonderful time!
We saw sleeping bears!
The kids really liked the reptile exhibits!
Isla tried to kiss the frog
and turn him into a Prince!
Roman had fun making all the
animal sounds as we passed by!
Isla was our "navigator".
She held on to the map and
told us where to go!
She led us to the big kitty cat! :)
It was a perfect weather to walk around
and look at all the animals.
The best exhibit was the giraffes and zebras!
The kids really liked the elephants too!
Of course when asked
what the elephants say
the kids said,
We took a short break at the
elephants so Lottie could rest!
Since most of the zoo animals were not very
cooperative I spent most of the time
snapping pictures of my 3 monkeys!
The highlight of the day
was riding the horses!
All Nixon talked about the entire
day was getting to ride a horse!
To my surprise, Isla even rode!
We ended the day with a train
ride around the zoo.
Roman loved the Choo Choo!
Nixon said her favorite animals
she saw were the gorillas!
And of course she liked
riding the horse the most!
Isla said her favorite animals
she saw were the monkeys!
Roman still refuses to talk but
I am pretty sure he liked riding
the Choo Choo the best!
It was a fun family day and a wonderful
way to start Thanksgiving Weekend!
