A trip to the zoo...

Wednesday, September 24, 2014
Between preschool and other obligations, we let our season passes expire but a bonus to the summer reading program was two free kids admissions so we took the opportunity to go one more time before school began (but after public school started).  It was a beautiful day and fairly quiet!  The kids pretty much go for the train, the big play area and carousel mixed in with a few of their favorite animals and a fun picnic lunch watching the train pass by!
Solon chose to ride backwards in the caboose of the train...

Driving the jeep in the tiger exhibit...

The lions were fun to watch and kind of on and off awake the day we were there.  We were told lions sleep up to 20 hours a day which explains why most of the time they are snoozing when we visit.

We ventured over to the butterfly area...


And of course rode bunny and dragon on the carousel...

The giraffes weren't out due to the heavy rains, apparently they don't like slippery areas and the rain scares them?!?!  We did see the rhino out and walking about which was a new experience and of course the sea lion and seal exhibit is always fun too.

We had lunch and played hard before Vera fell fast asleep on the way home.  She does not transfer well so if I want her to sleep, I hang out and read blogs,etc in the front seat while she snoozes in the back, parked in our driveway.  It never fails, she falls asleep about 15 minutes from home and so I try to hang out for at least 30 minutes so she gets a decent nap in.  We can't let her sleep too long these days or she parties late into the night these days!!!
