Saturday we had the most wonderful day at the zoo! The weather was perfect and Mr. P (working in television) was able to take advantage of 'Media Day' at the zoo. Our zoo is quite expensive especially compared to other zoos and other spots of interest in our area. Therefore, we don't often go even though we really enjoy it when we do. On this day, we were able to have free admission, free rides on the carousel and train, snacks, drinks and lunch from a local Outback Steakhouse! It was fabulous!
The flowers were almost as wonderful as the butterflies in the butterfly enclosure!
Karate Kid and Cindy Lou waiting ever so impatiently for the sea lion show to begin.
Cindy Lou really enjoyed the Lorikeets... almost as much as they enjoyed the food she was feeding them!
Karate Kid had a few bird friends himself!
In fact, the whole family got in on the action! Doesn't Flibby look thrilled to have birds walking up and down her arms! I must say, Mr. P is a natural. All of the animal kingdom simply love him. He is mighty sweet, right birdies!
Who can resist this charming baby giraffe taking a drink? This pose spawned numerous questions from Hannah Banana about why people don't have knees that bend that direction. Hmmm, looks painful to me!
A face only a mother could love! Baby vultures... I'm sorry but those things just aren't cute... even as babies!
