Zoo Day!

Last Friday the kids' daycare was closed for a Staff Development Day. Mike was in Reno snowboarding with his friends, so I took the opportunity to take the kids to the zoo. As you may or may not know, I went to high school in the parking lot of the LA zoo, and haven't been back in years. So it was really interesting to me to see how the zoo has changed over the years!

My favorite exhibit, the meerkats!

Amanda is slowly getting more brave at doing things she didn't used to do, like climbing on walls. She has always been a very timid girl, not really taking many risks. But Friday she felt safe enough to walk along a low wall on the path.

The chimps were one of her favorite exhibits. And yes, she wore her "Daddy's Little Monkey" shirt that day too!

The Rhino got up and did some moving around for us.

Then we found the playground...

And one last stop at the fountain before we left for the day...
All in all it was a fun trip. The weather was beautiful, a nice 72 degrees. I was in short sleeves after walking around pushing a stroller! Definitely worth the trip, and Amanda is still talking about what she saw at the zoo!
