And of course, Brooklyn had about 7 million temper tantrums. Poor Austin (who was shockingly awesome) carried her most of the day and even told her a well-timed lie as we were leaving. One ride on the merry-go-round wasn't enough for her royal highness and she threw herself down on the ground, begging for another ride. Austin told her that we were going to a different merry-go-round by our car. It worked. We were able to leave and she thankfully forgot about "the other" merry-go-round by the time we reached the parking lot.
After spending another 5 hours at the zoo, we still didn't get to all the exhibits, but here are a few new pics...
Clay made friends with the leopard. He kept standing real close and watching Clay. I don't know if he was thinking that Clay would make a tasty snack or if he was wondering how Clay had escaped from the monkey cages.
A pile of porcupines. They were all kinda on top of each other and I kept wondering if they were stabbing each other.
"Ouch! Move over Bob!"
"Dude, you're poking me!"
"Sorry, Kevin, but there's not really room to move here."
"Can you get your quills outta my face, Bill?"
Awww - kissing baby Dominick
My sister trying to keep Dominick from flipping himself into the goat pen.
"A LLAMA? He's supposed to be dead!" (Yeah, I watch too many Disney movies.)
This chicken needs a haircut.
Does anyone else think it's kinda cruel that they named the chicken "Fricassee"?
OK, yes they're just cows, but we don't see cows around these here parts
This is the part where Clay picked up goat poop and threw it. At least he didn't try to eat it, right?
Dominick in a little "nest" in the play zoo
This was in the turtle's enclosure. I guess they drink Diet caffeine free Coke.
And this was in the lemurs' cage. Paula Deen does their cooking.
They have face paint in the play zoo. I guess Clay is Rudolph.
Brooklyn having a snit because she didn't want to leave. The whole day, she kept grabbing Austin's ears. She was like Remy in Ratatouille, trying to steer him around by grabbing his ears and hair.
pretty water fountain
The kids sitting on a life size leatherback turtle. Lexi's hanging on for dear life as she slips into the
Lexi trying to save Clay from being eaten by a rather large fish.
the latest in formal wear
Yeah, it's a ceiling. I'm kinda nuts about taking pictures.
not just another pretty face
...the corn is as high as an elephant's eye.... (song?)
I never realized just how umm, interesting, tapirs look. They're much cuter on Diego.
