Long Day at the Zoo...

Today was a beautiful day so we decided to go to the zoo. They opened the new Flamingo exhibit yesterday; so we knew it would be busy, but we just happened to park at the entrance nearest to the Flamingo's so it was one of the first things we saw.

We were surprised that they let the kids touch them!! No, really... they had plastic pink flamingo's showing us the way!

Each time we go to the zoo we all pick our favorite from the day. Syrah picked the flamingo's; they are pretty amazing creatures. Their legs don't really look real!

Sadie's was the Red Panda, which we didn't even realize where there ~ we saw an entire section of the zoo this visit that somehow we seem to miss most times.

Dad's favorite was the Hippo's ~ not only were they out swimming a ton this visit, but they also were blowing water up; the first time it made all the people laugh and then one of the Hippo's did it again, but the second time it almost sounded like he was laughing with everyone - then he sprayed the water way up and the wind caught it just right which means we got some spray - yep, we were sprayed by Hippo's today!

I have to say that I really liked the Hippo's and the Red Panda, but I really believe the Otter has to be the one that I can sit and watch for hours!! I just love their energy, the way they swim in the water and their playful nature.

One of my favorite pictures from our day ~ Daddy with his girls!
