Baton Rouge Zoo

Today we went to the Baton Rouge Zoo with the playgroup from 1st Baptist.
Luke & Cameron racing while we're waiting for others to arrive
Of course, she's smiling :)

Luke showing me where Louisiana is on the world map...
the world spins all around so it's upside down

There's lots of work being down around to the zoo to make improvements.
I thought this sign was funny!

The siamang gibbons were very vocal today.
I wanted to get a better picture of them, but this one was cool with the reflection.

Miriam was very interested in this dik dik.

Luke wanted to take a picture in front of this flamingo statue...
they're trying to stand like flamingos...that's why Miriam's looking down...
she's trying to lift her leg :)
so sweet
had to show you again with her bear ears

Cameron had my camera after lunch
I told him to take pictures of these berries...he did a pretty good job don't you think

Cameron took this one too...
reminds me of Tracy's "Get Shooting" post

This giraffe was out by the ditch and close to the fence

had to take one in front of the giraffe, because they're Daddy's favorite
caught this one about to sit down
it looks like he's praying :)

one last time

look at those kids...I mean groundhogs!
brushing the goats
Levi kept calling them "dog"

I wish he would have had his tail feathers up
of course, we had to ride the train
(the one that's been there since I was a kid and has a lawn mower motor as Craig calls it)
waiting for the train to start
holding their ears because they don't want to hear the whistle

Levi...holding tight to his "boo"dog and cup
Micah playing with my camera strap
This one turned out decent considering...
I was holding her in my lap on the train with Levi & Miriam next to me
and I think I took it holding the camera upside down
view from the animals :)
turned out good ... I just held my camera out and pushed the button
maybe I should take all of them this way...LOL :)
