I took the kiddos to the zoo today. We have a membership; therefore, we go often. Luke LOVES going to the zoo, and Kate is now starting to like going as well -- as opposed to merely being the tag-a-long little sister in the stroller. But, since I've done a rather poopy job of keeping up on this blog, how about a documentation of at least one of our visits (which happened today)????
First, a little caveat -- Luke took along binoculars. You will notice in the following pics they were well used -- Ha!
The flamingos...Yes, the binoculars were immediately in use (if you aren't local and haven't been to this zoo, the flamingos are the first animal one sees)....
We made our way (making a few stops first) back to the wolves. Luke has been very fascinated with wolves lately (I think it comes from a specific video he's been watching about the Old Testament story of Joseph and his coat of many colors).
Fortunately, he was able to spot a wolf seeking shade underneath some trees. Kate observed with probably not a clue as to what she was looking at -- Ha!
Kate's one of those children who explain why there are so many barriers & boundaries at places like the zoo. She would've crawled right down in there, had it been accessible.
You see what I mean about the binoculars??? In this next pic, if you look closely, you can see Luke in the glass (behind the tiger) looking through his binoculars to see the tiger already up close -- Ha!
Oops....I caught one where Luke is not using binoculars.
If this next pic were in a museum, I would title it, "The Obligatory Tiger Pic With Both Kiddos". It's one of those pics I take EACH time we go to the zoo & text to Marc.
And, on the way home, Luke took this sweet pic of his little sister who was simply pooped out!
