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!
This was his 1st look at them, such wonder in that face!
Trying to call the elephant over
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!
