Please don’t kiss the lizard
This past weekend was our annual trip to the zoo so our girls can wish there cousin a Happy Birthday.
I, I mean, they always look forward to this trip every year. It is always fun and a great learning experience!
For instance do you know what Monkey’s are endangered?
Oh wait! That’s a Baboon! Sorry! How about these loud guys?
No, these guys are actually Siamangs, or part of the ape family. They get upset if you call them a monkey too.
Geez! You guys, you don’t have to get so upset!
How about these? Here are some real monkeys!
We saw all the customary critters at the zoo like:
and also the fast paced…
They also have a new exhibit at the zoo, this 3-story ropes course
Dylan didn’t like the height so much this time…
Climbing the ropes did make EVERYONE hungry! Everyone!
Yes it was feeding time all over the zoo.
See these colorful little guys:
We got to feed them….
The Meerkats sure looked hungry!
But the meerkats still didn’t have the BIG appetite of this fella…
Take a look:
We were TONGUE’D!
We even got to see the Koloa’s wake up from their nap for some yummy eucalyptus branches…
Yes, he looks better now…
Speaking of Happy, how about some Happy Feet?
But, hey, we are at the zoo! Lets go find some more WILD Animals….
No, Wild like the wild cats!
and her Majesty….
and this Fish Cat (yea, that’s actually its name)
How about another photo op of the roaming birthday party:
She said I smelled the elephants. That the elephants are really stinky!
Uh-oh….what did you do?
…and where did Skylar go?
..playing with an animal more her size. She is so friendly…..
Maybe toooo friendly! 🙂
Skylar, Please don’t kiss the lizard!
Thanks for coming along to the birthday party with us!
Stay tuned to see what these wild ones get into next!
Looks like a fun time was had by all! Thanks for sharing the pictures.
Maybe next time she’s fearless! I last when zip/rope climbing as few years at the National Whitewater Centre in North Carolina. That was so much fun! I think I went around twice!
Giraffes do have beautiful eyelashes. Not the slightest bit jealous.
Have you ever seen how big and wonderful giraffe’s eyes are? That is my biggest draw to this zoo, feeding the giraffes, in that you can get up close with these giant animals. I actually rotated cameras this trip between my phone’s and our rarely used Casio. So some pics may be better than others. Yes, you guessed it, this year I really enjoyed the ropes course the most. Oddly, my little daredevil Dylan was scared up on the ropes. But after last year’s first attempt I convinced myself I was completely safe bundled in that strap apparatus. So I went more for some thrills this year. I was thinking you would really enjoy this trip too; to the zoo. Thanks for looking in Natalie! Have a great week…
Wow! Great time at the zoo! The koala and giraffe pics are fantastic! I have ask however, how had more fun on the rope course? You or your girls?!
Making more happy childhood memories! And I’m glad they’re happy parenting memories too! 🙂
They had a blast! And they didn’t fight or argue all day. Mom said on the way home that it was a Great Day! We’ve been doing this same trip now for about 4 years and the kids (and I) look forward to it every year. Glad you stopped by PIF! Have a great week!
Looks like they had a lot of fun!
Not if but when… :p
I watched in nervous anticipation as she slowly inched forward.
If I ever grow evil horns, I will say its like a giraffe, kind and nice 😛
Hahaha, that must have been a little confusing . . . or scary!
We really have to keep our eye on that girl! She was actually comparing tongues with the blue tongued lizard. The funny thing, her sister also had a blue Ring Pop, giving her a blue tongue too at the time. But she was afraid what showing her blue tongue would do to the lizard. 🙂 Thanks for dropping by Luanne! I hope you are doing great!
Lol….You rat! Yes, I guess you can see how grey I am getting all over in that pic. 🙂 And that giraffe kinda reminded me of you and its big brown eyes….just need to put some round glasses on it, Ms AuAu. 🙂 As always, thanks for dropping by and lending your input. You always make me smile.
Looking good there at the first picture by the wall, you forgot your ourlifein3d.com tshirt, and, you shouldnt post yourself naked…
The turtle is funny, so big body and small head.
Kind of give you nightmares, the giraffe licking your face when youre sleeping.
Nice zoo trip 🙂
So cute–the animals and the kids both!!! Skylar, NOOOOOOOO!
