A Day At the Zoo!

Can you believe my children have never been to the zoo?  I know...I'm a terrible mother.  We have thought about going a lot, but it just seems to never happen.  I always want someone to go with me because it scares me to handle both of them at one of our crowded zoos by myself.  And we never want to go during summer because it is SO hot.  We were in Waco for a day during Spring Break and Amy suggested we take the kids.  The weather was perfect and the kids LOVED it!
We didn't bring the stroller to Waco so I though we should rent a wagon.  Clearly, Jillian did not want her picture taken.

 The animals were all out since it wasn't very hot.

This orangutan was super excited to see us!  He came right over to the window and put on a show for us!

What in the world could be so interesting you ask?

Meerkats of course!  All three kids were crazy about them!

Trying to see the lion.  Notice how well the wagon was working out. :(

They decided their favorite thing was to pull the wagon.  This is a rare moment when they were both pulling and not fighting over it.

Miss Avery trying to see the rhino!

Rhino and J's head to the right.  lol
The girls taking a break.  It lasted about 4.5 seconds.

She is so excited she managed to get the wagon away from brother!
Trying to get in the exhibit to hang out with the flamingos.
The giraffes were walking all over the place!

Avery and Eli pulling nicely. :)

Avery relaxin with a cracker!

Why does this lady keep taking my picture and where is my mommy??

Checking out the little monkeys.
These little guys were all over the place.  They kept running right up close to the glass and Jillian would squeal!  So fun!


Getting tired...time to go home and take a nap!
We loved the calm of the Waco zoo!  Even though it was spring break, it wasn't very crowded and the kids had a blast!  I'm sure we will be going back!

We love the Waco zoo... small enough that it's manageable for the little ones. It's gorgeous in the fall, too, when the trees are changing color in Cameron Park.
