This year we started in Africa (see last year's post about my giraffe disappointment) because I was determined to feed a giraffe - it's on my bucket list. Well, they weren't cooperating...so once again I went without feeding a giraffe! I'm over it. Maybe next year. It was hard to stay disappointed when Grant was having so much fun (and stating every 5 minutes "Let's go see the crocodiles!" - which were at the other end of the zoo).
|Seeing a giraffe is still cool, even if I didn't feed it.|
|This guy was being a bit of a show-off for us!|
|Grant was so excited! (Husband looks annoyed but he's not)|
|This monkey was cracking me up with the way he was sitting.|
It reminded me of my dad HA!
|Love the elephants :)|
|Aren't those markings so pretty?|
|Grant wanted so badly to having his picture taken|
on this rhino and this rude mom kept letting her kid get in the way!
|Such a pretty area for the animals to roam|
|This was inside one of the buildings. Grant loved that|
little turtle statue on the bench.
|The gorillas were awesome. You can't tell from the|
picture, but that guy at the back is HUGE.
|Looks thrilled, doesn't he?|
|If you can't tell from my hair, it was humid. But still fun.|
|Had to get in the jeep!|
|Buffalo are so odd looking but cool too.|

|I love this picture (courtesy of Gramma!)|
|They had planted huge sections of black eyed Susans - my|
mom's favorite flower. So pretty!

|His real excitment was their viewing area down below.|
|"Oh! It's a CROCODILE!"|
|Happy zoo-goer :)|
|He loved it and named it "Tick Tock Croc"|
|He had a good day :)|
