Some were zoo employees dressed up. The below one is because they have giant pandas at the zoo. Kinsley was really enthralled with anything panda at the zoo.
We did see some elephants very close up!
There was no way we could see all the animal exhibits in one day, so we saw all we could.
Tim's parents came with us and took some pictures for us. Tim and I actually got into some pictures together!
Grandma with my big guys!
Tim and his dad.
Three of my littles!
The reptile house!
Such a happy day of making wonderful memories!
The statue outside the gorilla exhibit.
Zeke does not get to go on many of our outings, now that he is in public school participating in their work program. It was so nice to have him with us on this day!
The children were not to impressed with the petting zoo, that was mostly goats, as we have them at home. But the boulders and huge stumps in there for the goats to climb on were a big hit!
Psalm 36:5-7 Thy mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O Lord, thou preservest man and beast. How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
