The Zoo

We had a great weekend. It went by way to fast for me,but it was wonderful. I just love doing things that make my kids happy. Its not very often that we do special things like going to the zoo, so when we do , I think the kid appreciate them more. I took lots of pictures while we were there. Here are a few.. this one is of Emma sitting in the kangaroo's pouch, she was kinda scared when I sat her in there. This is a peacock, that was sitting right beside of us on the rail as we were waiting for the zoo train. I couldn't believe it was so close.
And here are the kids on the train.
The goat that they let you feed and pet. We didn't get to feed them because it was the end of the day and they have to regulate how much the little goats eat, but there were brushes there that the kids used to brush them. Daddy enjoyed the baby goats too:)
This was a little set up they had for fall out at the front gates of the zoo. We tried so hard to get Emma to look at the camera but with all the people she was to busy looking around.
Jess and Emma in the big dinosaur egg,

and Gary in his:)
We took Emma on the carousal for the first time. She liked it until it started moving, it went up and down, so she was a little scared but it was fun.
Oh, this was real cool, Bennie was holding Emma letting her look through the fence at the wallabies and one just hopped right up to her and stood there for the longest time. Then she burped and it scared the little guy away:)
And here is Gary in the kangaroos pouch.
It really was a lot of fun. I had never been there in the fall. They had the whole place decorated up with pumpkins and corn husks. It was beautiful. After the zoo we went out to eat, then to toys r us and Sam's club. the kids behaved very well and everyone had a great time! I couldn't have asked for a better day.

Looks like fun! We have some pictures with the eggs and hay bales too. We missed the Australian Adventure area last time we went. I think that is one of my favorite parts!
