It’s Spring Break, and we just checked off visiting the zoo on our Spring Break list. We have a family membership because we love to go to the zoo so much.
The Tram Ride
My aunt and nephew joined us on our trip today. Tinkerbell was SO excited. She loves her cousin and her aunt. We finally got to take the tram. We have been meaning to do this for a year and every time the line is too long or we are just to plum tuckered out. But this time we did it perfect. We started on the tram this time, rode the tram back to the new elephant enclosure, and then got off there. We got to see the giraffes and zebras without the extra long hike.
The baby elephant is about to be two, but she doesn’t really seem so big. Peter Pan loves the elephants. He was singing the Barney song, “El-ephant!” and waiving his arm like a trunk. Tinkerbell thanked God tonight for the elephants.
Then it was snack time, already. Daddy was nice enough to get up early this morning to make us all breakfast, snacks, and lunch!
We also got to see the brand new baby gorilla. The mom looked so loving while we were there!
Then on to more animals……We saw the tigers,
rhinos, hippo, and after lunch the meerkats. Tinkerbell loves them too……Dig a tunnel, dig, dig, a tunnel………..
We had a picnic lunch and then rode the carousel.
Finally, we ended the day with the sea lion show….
All in all, it was a great Spring Break day with our kids!!!!!!! We love the zoo.
On the way home, Tinkerbell’s cousin taught her to each a corn dog (which she calls cornbread).
