The trip was part of the end of year events for girl number 1’s school. The school chose the zoo as a venue so families could have a great time together. We took about 356 pictures (okay, hyberbole). But we took so many pictures and I’ve gone through a painful (and sweet) process of selecting them. If you enjoy pictures as much as I do then read on.
The first place we explored was the animal farm. Girl number 2 is an animal person. She went for the goats.
Girl number 1 was SCARED. She got it from her Mama.
It felt good to see cows after a long time.
I couldn’t resist taking a pic of this bunny. It was too cute!
Common questions at the poultry.
It was fun.
I could really use some of these fresh eggs.
Then we saw some pigs, AKA “cunyam” or “shwine”. Do you have a colloquial expression for pig in your area?
We watched the real pigs from afar then the girls sat on the fake pigs.
The lazy tiger was asleep. Can you spot the tiger?
And the biggest bear…
We probably watched this bear for about an hour. It just kept swimming and playing with the water.
Look at those big feet, I mean paws?
Girl number 1 was far, very far away from the bear. Meanwhile girl number 2 stayed close.
We saw leopards.
Then we went for a ride.
I thoroughly enjoyed the touch with nature at the zoo.
