a day at the zoo

Thanks to a partnership between the Georgia state libraries and Zoo Atlanta we were able to take the boys to the zoo for free. This was Alex's first visit and a perfect birthday gift for me. Every time he moved to a new exhibit he would exclaim "Look Mommy, I found something!", it was precious!

His favorite animal was the elephant.

This was his 1st look at them, such wonder in that face!

I never thought I'd say this, but warthogs are kind of cute...in a muddy sort of way

Ben and I shared a very mature giggle over this sign.

There were a LOT of turtles giving ummm, piggy back rides that day.

It kills me that I didn't catch this moment in focus, but I love it all the same ♥

I see a resemblance, do you?

What could possibly prompt such a face you ask?

Yeah, I have to agree with B's horror over this sight!

The reptile house was Ben's favorite, although I was sad to see the alligators and crocodiles are now gone.

But there was plenty of snakes!

My favorite is the pandas. I want to snuggle one so badly!

This is the new baby, Po, so cute!!

Proof that I was there too. Poor Alex was pretty hot and worn out by then.

As we were leaving the park this bird was all too proud of it's treasure, a rat. He kept strutting back and forth and posing for all to admire. Not exactly the image of cuteness I wanted to leave with, but what can you do?

I can't wait to go back next year!
