Playing in the water around the world
Two precious little girls
(one is 3 months and the other is 3 weeks old)
Candi said I should get this shot since it’s our mascot in our logo.

This momma was guarding her eggs yet she built her nest right next to the fence.
We thought this was the funniest thing. Look at this bird’s huge foot!!! It just kept standing there on one foot posing.
(That first one walked over to the second one and opened it’s mouth like it was fierce or something. The other one who was bigger just looked at him like, “Whatever!”)
As part of our field trip, I had scheduled an “ed-zoo-cational” program for our group. Since our group was so large, we had to schedule two back to back hours for everyone.
We did the Web of Life:
They learned about the triangle: Producers, Primary consumers, Secondary consumers, and Tertiary consumers. (If I remember correctly…wink, wink!) They had live animals representing each one and the kids got to pet 3 of the 4 animals there.
A cute chinchilla
A Blue Tongue Skink
(Sorry, I forgot the type of owl.)
A Madagascar Cockroach
After our program, it was lunch time. A few of our families went back out of the zoo to enjoy a picnic lunch.
Here’s turtle mound…at least that is what I called it. We saw them on our way out of the zoo for lunch.
After lunch, we went back in to look at a few more things and let the kids play at their nice playground.

Ian took this photo of the giraffes. Our newspaper and the zoo are having a photo contest right now so Ian entered this picture for the children’s division. If you would like you can click on the link at the bottom of this post to vote for his picture. You can vote once a day through Mar. 25th.
Christine and her girls
(Christine and her five lovely children came in town and stayed with us for 4 days. It was fun having them visit and join us on our field trip.)
It was a beautiful, sunny day. The highs were in the low 80s with no rain which made for a great zoo trip and a few sun-kissed children.
