A Trip To The Zoo-Staycation Day 2

For Staycation Day 2, we decided to spend the day at the zoo. Grant's mom joined us, and the kids were so excited to have their Grandma come to the zoo with them. It was very crowded, but we managed to have a great time!!!

We had some close animal encounters. It was a good day for the zoo. The weather was very warm, sunny, and breezy, so the animals were active. Many of them came right up to the glass, and the kids got to see a Scarlet Macaw and an owl out of their cages.

Mommy Elephant carried some hay over to her baby.

Grant loves bears, so he was so excited to see this guy out and about. He has been snoozing every time we go to the zoo!

The aquarium is one of our favorite places. The penguins, polar bears, and sharks are always a hit!

This penguin kept coming right up to the glass in front of Dylan and Lexie. They were enthralled!

When we were in the polar bear tunnel, one of the bears jumped in for a swim!

The shark tunnel is just amazing!

We can't go to the zoo without stopping to play!

I loved this adorable, baby deer in the petting zoo!

The beavers were snacking on some watermelon.

Dylan loves the snakes, frogs, and toads.

This little one was fascinated with my camera.

Cooling down in the misters. First picture taken at point of impact, lol!

We finished out our visit by taking a train ride and picking up some drinks and souvenirs. We all had a great time!

I'd call the day a success!
