We're Going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo...

(That is a song I learned in a kindergarten class I taught and it was stuck in my head as soon as I woke up the day we went to the zoo.)
We went to the zoo on Wednesday. And it was an absolutely perfect day to go! All the animals were out and moving so much. Usually I have to point out to my boys where the animals are sleeping, but this time they were able to easily find them all. Easton kept looking at the map and telling us which way to go, and he was very good at finding all the different animals. It was very cute. Cole did have one small scare, but I'm sure it would scare anyone his size. He was standing up at a glass window where the leopoard was. The leopard was walking back and forth in front of a different window right next to Cole. Cole got distracted by some kids next to him and was looking at them for a while. When he finally turned his attention back to the window the leopard was right in front of him, staring right at him! He naturally freaked out! It was very hard not to laugh while comforting him. (I know, I'm so mean.) We also got to see the white alligator, which Easton called the "fake alligator" because that is really what it looked like, but it was still cool to see it, even though it didn't move and pretty much looked dead. But it really was an absolutely wonderful day!

How fun! I'm seeing a lot of zoo blogs lately. You're right, the white alligator looks dead. I'm glad you guys had fun--we should go together!
