Sunday at the Zoo

Today we went to the zoo. The dinosaur exhibit is only there for one more week and we wanted to have a chance to see it again before it leaves.
It was a beautiful day outside and we had a great time as usual.
 Ally and I strolled around the dinosaurs - here she is with the Ornithamimus.
 Then it was off to feed the budgees.

 Ally's patience is admirable. Something spooked the birds and they all flew away  and for a long time (over 5 minutes) they would not come eat. I got so bored I sat down on a bench but she stayed and held her stick up for them and eventually a few came over. She was especially thrilled because one walked on her arm!
The zoo has a wonderful new playground.

The gorillas are always our favorite thing.


 The lion looked like our cat Nali the way he was sprawled out on his back.
 Ally asked to ride the carousel.
Again- it was a really long wait while the woman running the ride waited until every single seat was filled. Becky said Ally never complained once.

 The zebra was up very close
 The butterfly garden was fun to see
But the best part of all to me was spending the day with my family.
We almost skipped the zoo since in the past 10 days Ally has visited the Aquarium, Bearizona and a deer farm. Becky and I were thinking we had our fill of animals but in the end we decided to go to our zoo and we were glad.
