October Zoo Trip

In October we took a trip to the zoo with several of our friends from church. It was really fun; the girls were excited to have some of their friends there with us.

As soon as we walked in they wanted to take silly pictures with the rhino statue:

We went inside the "natural encounters" building and Susie saw a catfish as big as herself:

And Ellie crawled through a piranha tunnel:

We swung around by the elephants next and got to see them taking their morning showers. Ellie found these ears and made a trunk with her arm:

From there we went up to "Africa." Ellie has an African Painted Dog stuffed animal that she got from Disneyworld (she named it "Paintfor" and it's a girl) and she brought it to the zoo. She wanted to take a picture with Paintfor next to the African Painted Dog sign.

From there we stopped at the play area in "Africa" and had even more friends join up with us. Then we saw the gorilla exhibit (complete with statues of giant millipedes):

And then saw the chimps, zebras, and giraffes. We were kind of tired by then, so we called it a day and made our way back to the front of the zoo. Before we left, Ellie and Zelda wanted to take a picture with the seal statue. These girls seriously crack me up:

Ellie learned how to make a heart with her hands (maybe at school?) and wanted to make it here:
