Zoo trip

I have to admit that I was impressed by the local zoo.  If you haven't been, I highly recommend it.  It was small enough to cover in a morning. but had an impressive number of animals. 

Cooper was excited from the start because the first animal he saw was a peacock.  This one was without tail feathers, but he still loves them.

 The flamingos were a hit.

 This guy got a slight scream out of me as he sailed overhead with his breakfast in his mouth. Glad he didn't drop it.

 A very protective Black Swan momma.

 The kids said he was giving a thumbs up.
 The orangutans were hilarious ... like old men just hanging out.

 Quite possibly, the stinkiest creatures I have ever seen, the Galapagos turtle.

 Happy to be upwind from the rhinos and the turtles.

 The longest tongue we have ever seen.  He finally got brave enough to stick his hand out there.

The giraffes were a big hit with all the kids.
 Another of his favorites.

 A fun surprise to see these little guys play.

 Look carefully and you will see the little guy hanging on.  She stopped to pose for me.

The first comment from Cooper was that these were spider monkeys, and he was right.  They looked just like spiders on the fence.

All in all, it was a great field trip.  The kids did really well and wore themselves out before the spring music concert later that night.
