Friday was a nice day so we decided to go to the zoo since we hadn't been in a while.
One of the reasons we wanted to go was to see the new tiger exhibit. It was really neat because one of the male zookeepers was checking things out. The female tiger that was out doesn't like him so she kept stalking him. She jumped up on the glass and even showed her teeth to him.
Last week we read about Australia in our history curriculum, Tapestry of Grace. One of the suggested activities was to go to a zoo and find any Australian animals that they have. We couldn't find the wallaroo and the emu and red kangaroos weren't very active when we at their area. However, when we rode the train the emus were out close to the fence.
Daddy's favorite zoo animal is the giraffe and one happened to be out close to the fence. It was very cooperative for my photo shoot!
Some of the birds and other animals that we saw.
Afterwards, we rode the train as usual.
I tried to get some group shots...typical. Luke attempted to take a picture of me & Craig. I don't think it was on auto which is why it was blurry.
You can tell it was a good day when they all fall asleep on the way home.
It makes me want to sing this song from the Fresh Beat Band.
