At the Zoo

Last Monday Scott and I both took the morning off to go to the zoo.  It was a perfect morning – dry and sunny, but not too hot.  It was the first trip to the zoo for the boys.  For the first few animal stops they looked at ducks crossing the path, flowers, trees, fish swimming in the watering holes, etc.  until we got to the elephants.  At that point they realized that there were real animals on the other side of the fence.

The most exciting part of the zoo for the boys was the monkey building (probably not the official name).  Being at the zoo first thing in the morning meant no crowds and the boys could run back and forth watching the monkeys swing and climb. 

The aquarium was closed with the exception of the ground floor.  So we went and looked at the stingrays but not for long because the boys were intent on finding a way into the stingray tank. And then we walked down the path to see the polar bears.  The bears were sitting on the rocks staring up at the top of the wall – at that point I realized it was feeding time.  As fish were thrown into the water the bears were swimming directly in front of us.

Juliana, Ruslan and Wyatt were pressed to the glass watching and then Wyatt was suddenly back at my side watching from afar.  It wasn’t until I looked at the pictures later and found this sequence of photos that I realized why he had taken a few steps back.
