The zoo is open again! We are back for the first time this year! The kids were trying on the masks at the opening for fun.
We started with seeing the farm section where the kids can have a chance to pet the animals.
This sink is just the right level to kind of spray the kids in the face. They get a little of the splatter off from it and that is the reason Ben is making the face.
We like to pass by the tortoises and sit on the bronzed one for a classic zoo picture.
The sea lions weren’t swimming today. I guess it wasn’t hot enough.
A favorite thing for the kids this year is the pony rides. Ben used to be so scared of these ponies when he was younger.
Daddy joined us at the zoo after he got off work for his favorite, the African exhibit! Our favorite is still seeing the lions. I think almost every time we go we see them active and playing around and more often then not we get to hear Bill the lion roaring!
The African exhibit ends with a drum area. I think it’s a favorite for most kids. I am not sure I know a kid who could resist banging on a drum.
I am never in our pictures, so I let Steven take a few se we can remember I was there too.
Last and final thing is a drink from the lion water fountain. The water fountain is always fun to drink from and the lion shape makes it even more fun!
We love going to the zoo as a family! It is one of our favorite family activities!
