This one was taken outside of the big red barn where we saw chickens, bunnies, sheep, llamas, goats, and lots more! (and I learned that my camera has a timer!)These two loved the giant turtles! Behind them is the Reptile House - there was an albino Burmese Python and a brown one, curled up all nice and cuddly looking - they just gave me the shivers and I couldn't wait to get out of there!
Like I said, it was the perfect day for going to the zoo! We stayed longer than we should have and ended up only driving about 7 hours that day, so we had a longer drive the next day and got home about the time that our church was ending instead of starting - oh well, we were all glad we stopped!
The day we were there, the zoo was having some extra special activities to celebrate Earth Day. The kids got free cupcakes, played some games, we got a big reusable shopping bag, a free tomato plant and a package of seeds to plant!
The kids loved the cupcakes, the games were dumb and corny, I've used my shopping bag a couple of times, the tomato plant was planted in the garden and I think it is now dead (guess it got too cold at nite!) and we will be planting the corn seeds this week!
