Perfect Day For The Zoo!

We decided to go to the zoo today. Actually, this has been in the works for a couple of weeks because we decided to go to a zoo that is a bit far away- about a 90 minute drive. But, I had heard it is the best zoo EVER, so this morning we went with some friends to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

They actually get to feed the giraffes at this zoo- how cool is that? That was definitely the best part!
Audra was a little scared of the giraffes, actually. But, she overcame her fears and did great.
 You can see Claire here behind Audra- she LOVED this! It was very hard for me to keep with her, however.
 Audra got to pretend to be a monkey.

 At this exhibit, the kids got to feed the birds with sticks with birdseed on them. As hard as they tried, however, the birds would not eat. They must not have been hungry.

 On the Merry-go-round, a favorite for the kiddos.

 And Audra telling me to "stop taking pictures, mom!"
Overall, a GREAT day- but I am really tired!


  1. That does look like a great zoo! Glad you had good weather for it too.

  2. We have an area where you can feed birds at Pacific Science center, I believe, and since everyone is feeding the birds there comes a point when they are just not hungry anymore. That is amazing that they got to feed the giraffes though.
