At the Zoo for the day...

:: Zoo Day ::

We're going to the zoo tomorrow, zoo tomorrow, zoo tomorrow
We're going to the zoo tomorrow and Mama said we could stay all day....
-Raffi

Yup, that's what we were singing yesterday because we were really excited about the zoo and we love all things Raffi. Even though it is ( according to my standards) unreasonably hot and humid here, we braved it and had a great day at the zoo. I always love taking the girls to a place with animals and gardens. My favorite part is "Butterfly Hollow" where they have an enclosed garden and many butterflies. I love the fairy theme. Miss E loved the zebras and Ce-Ce loved the Siamangs.  Part of me always feels sad that the animals aren't living in their native lands but I appreciate the beauty of flora and fauna that this diverse earth gives us. I am happy that zoos and preserves exist because I think it helps everyone appreciate mother earth just a bit more. 

I don't like snakes very much but isn't he beautiful


Stingray Bay...we got to touch them! 


Carousel Ride with the girls


I wanted to take him home with us!

Miss E wanted to pet him...not a good idea.
We'll get a smaller and more docile house cat instead. 

Pumba! 


James loves the big cats
